Argentina’s Largest Futures Market Is Into Bitcoin


Matba Rofex, the biggest futures market in Argentina, is seeking regulatory approval in order to launch cash-settled Bitcoin futures. The National Securities Commission will review the proposal but will not prioritize it, according to an Oct. 1. Apart from Bitcoin, Matba Rofex is also exploring similar products for other cryptos. While Argentinians are able to trade such a product on unregulated exchanges, regulated Bitcoin futures are not available in the country.
