Report: Major European Derivatives Exchange to Launch Cryptocurrency Futures
Eurex, a Germany-based derivatives exchange operated by Deutsche Boerse, is reportedly planning to launch futures contracts tied to digital assets, financial technologies-focused news outlet The Block reported on Feb. 21.
People familiar with the matter reportedly told the Block that Eurex is planning to launch futures contracts tied to such digital currencies as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and Ripple (XRP), having already had meetings with market-making companies to discuss the products.
Deutsche Boerse has reportedly been considering the introduction of digital currency futures since December, 2017. A spokesperson for the exchange then said that “we are thinking about futures, with which private investors and institutional investors can protect existing investments in Bitcoin or set for falling prices of the cyber currency.”
In September 2018, Deutsche Boerse established a “DLT, Crypto Assets and New Market Structures” unit, that would explore the disruptive potential the technology could have for financial market infrastructure, as well as the new products the exchange could develop to enhance its existing offerings.
Founded in 1998, Eurex is an international derivatives exchange operated by one of the world’s leading stock exchanges, Deutsche Boerse. Eurex Clearing reportedly manages a collateral pool of 49 billion euro ($55.5 billion) and clears trades valued at 12.46 trillion euro each month.
Last month, Deutsche Boerse announced that it was “making significant progress” on its blockchain-based securities lending platform, the launch of which is scheduled for the the first half of 2019. Per the press release from Deutsche Boerse, six banks to date had confirmed their plans to join the securities lending platform, and have initiated “their connectivity processes.”

Brazilian Bank Aims to Raise $15 Million Through Security Token Offering
In an announcement Thursday, Banco BTG Pactual said it will back its blockchain-based token with distressed Brazilian real estate assets, with the expectation of raising up to $15 million. It will also establish a secondary market following the sale in order to provide liquidity to the tokens.
The offering will allow investors to invest in the Brazilian real estate market and, based on the performance of the tied assets, receive periodic profits. International investors will be able to purchase the token, called ReitBZ (RBZ), through a “low-cost, tax-efficient structure,” said the bank.
BTG Pactual CEO, Roberto Sallouti, said:
- “The technology associated with this offering allows us to be a pioneer in providing access to asset classes that have historically been difficult for global retail investors to access. We are constantly exploring innovative ways to promote, democratize and encourage the development of financial and capital markets.”
For the sale, BTG Pactual is partnering with the Winklevoss-founded Gemini Trust Company, LLC (Gemini) to utilize its regulated U.S.-dollar backed stablecoin, the Gemini dollar, to receive investment capital and distribute dividends over the ethereum blockchain.
“The tokenization of real assets is a major step forward in the evolution of the crypto economy. … Working with BTG Pactual to leverage the Gemini dollar as the stablecoin for ReitBZ helps move the industry in the right direction,” said Gemini CEO Tyler Winklevoss.
The token’s portfolio will comprise town properties in the states of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. The bank aims to include properties that have been “impacted” by the economic recession in Brazil and now offer “potentially significant economic upside,” according to the announcement.
The bank said it will comply with applicable anti-money laundering (AML) and know your customer (KYC) requirements. Residents of Brazil, the U.S. and possibly other countries will not be able to invest through the offering.
The news come just days after JPMorgan it is launching its own digital currency called JPM Coin. The token was developed in-house and is moving to real-world trials in coming months.
For the trial, JPM Coin will be used to settle a small portion of its $6 trillion daily transactions between clients of its wholesale payments business in real time.
JPM Coin will initially run on top of Quorum, the private version of ethereum the bank developed in conjunction with EthLab, but could later extended to other blockchain networks, the bank said at the time.
