Building a Crypto Market in Traditional Futures Exchange Form – Thomas Chippas, ErisX

Early crypto exchanges weren’t bred from any tradition – they were born on the far fringes of capital markets know-how. To change that, ErisX brought together a staff with decades of experience in fields like prime broking, matching engine functionality, and central clearing, to build its exchange that will feature spot and futures contracts side-by-side. The result? A 24/7 real-time clearing platform for fiat and physical delivery of crypto. In this video from JLN’s Industry Leader Series, ErisX CEO Thomas Chippas talks about how innovating in crypto sometimes just means applying technologies and methodologies that are already established in other markets, the exchange’s expansive investor base, and what it is going to take for crypto trading to take off on regulated U.S. exchanges.
