Coinbase is joining CME Group, as well as crypto exchanges like Binance, OKEx, FTX and Kraken, in offering derivatives.
The company said in a tweet it had submitted an application with the National Futures Association (NFA), a US regulatory body that focuses on derivatives.
“This is the next step to broaden our offerings and offer futures and derivatives trading on our platforms. Goal: Further grow the crypto economy,” Coinbase said in a tweet.
The company, which listed on the US stock exchange in February, has been making strides in growing its business.
Earlier this week, Coinbase said it planned to raise up to $2 billion through a bond sale and would use the proceeds to fund future takeovers, develop new technologies and products.
The NFA website showed Coinbase Financial Markets had a pending membership application.
