If you are looking forward to test the waters and start your own crypto derivatives exchange platform Espay-X has put together this guide to help you navigate the various regulatory positions against cryptocurrency derivatives, as well as the related activities.
United States: Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has taken a more accommodating ' do no damage ' policy, identifying bitcoin as a product and enabling the public trade in cryptocurrency derivatives.
Canada: After analyzing the trading strategies on different platforms, the CSA concluded that some of them only grant their users a contractual right or claim to a crypto-asset, and do not immediately pass it on to a customer. All websites for crypto-trading are subject to securities law, and are therefore subject to derivatives law.
Singapore: The Singapore Monetary Authority (MAS), Singapore's central bank and financial regulator, are in negotiations to put crypto-derivatives trading under its remit. The aim of the proposed regulation is to have adequate oversight to avoid systemic risks to the broader financial system in case one of the approved exchanges is going wrong.
Japan: Transactions on crypto-asset derivatives will be regulated under the FIEA beginning in April 2020. The Japan Virtual Currency Exchange Association (JVCEA), a major self-regulatory body in Japan, has a regulation that suggests four or even lower margin rates, although the law does not specify margin rates.
United Kingdom: The FCA has introduced a prohibition that would restrict the "sale, marketing, and distribution"
