美国商品期货交易委员会(CFTC)为数字资产的实物交付设定了参数

2020-3-25 14:46

 

美国商品期货交易委员会(CFTC)公布了数字资产实物交割的明确性,因为它适用于交易市场产品。


美国商品期货交易委员会(cftc)在向Cointelegraph提供的一份声明中表示:“该委员会今日宣布,投票一致通过了有关涉及某些数字资产的零售商品交易的最终解释指引。”


“具体而言,该指南澄清了CFTC关于《商品交易法》(CEA)第2(c)(2)(D)条的‘实际交割’例外的观点,该例外适用于作为交换媒介的数字资产,俗称‘虚拟货币’。”


主流的大宗商品交易包括实物交割


在传统市场中,当参与者进行期货交易时,他们押注的是标的资产未来的价格走势。如果他们持有这些期货直至结算,他们最终会收到标的资产,实物交付给他们。


CFTC的新规定规定了28天的实物交割期限,允许买家在此期限之后使用其购买的数字资产。


新的指引包括一个人持有或控制这样的商品,通过杠杆交易或其他方式购买。该委员会表示,他或她“有能力在不迟于交易之日起28天内(在任何特定执行地点以外)在商业活动中自由使用全部数量的商品,并在此后的任何时候”。

 

供方交出所有权


商品期货交易委员会(CFTC)规定,卖方和协调人不保留任何所有权。委员会解释说:


“要约人,对手卖方(包括任何各自的附属公司或他人与要约人或交易对手卖家一个类似的基础上)不保留任何兴趣,合法权利,或控制的任何商品购买保证金,杠杆,或其他融资安排在28天的到期日期的交易。”


美国商品期货交易委员会(CFTC)的持续澄清表明,数字资产交易在主流世界非常流行,这推动了相应的监管指导。就在今年1月,芝加哥商品交易所(CME)推出了比特币期权交易。这一产品的推出表明,自2017年比特币期货推出以来,比特币交易需求持续增长。


Cointelegraph向CFTC寻求更多意见,但截至记者截稿时,没有收到任何回复。如果有响应,本文将相应更新。

 

The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, or CFTC, has publicized clarity on physical digital asset delivery as it applies to traded market products. 

 

“The Commodity Futures Trading Commission today announced the Commission voted unanimously to approve final interpretive guidance concerning retail commodity transactions involving certain digital assets,” the Commission said in a statement provided to Cointelegraph, adding:

“Specifically, the guidance clarifies the CFTC’s views regarding the ‘actual delivery’ exception to Section 2(c)(2)(D) of the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA) in the context of digital assets that serve as a medium of exchange, colloquially known as ‘virtual currencies.’”

 

Commodities trading in the mainstream involves physical delivery

 

In traditional markets, when participants trade futures, they are betting on the future price action of an underlying asset. If they hold those futures all the way through settlement, they end up receiving the underlying asset, physically delivered to them. 

 

The CFTC’s new clarity involves a 28-day deadline for physical delivery, allowing the buyer to use their purchased digital asset after that period. 

 

The new guidance includes a person holding or controlling such a commodity, bought via leverage trading or other methods. He or she has “the ability to use the entire quantity of the commodity freely in commerce (away from any particular execution venue) no later than 28 days from the date of the transaction and at all times thereafter,” the Commision said. 

 

The offering party gives over ownership

 

The CFTC included that the selling party and facilitator do not retain any ownership. The commission explained:

“The offeror and counterparty seller (including any of their respective affiliates or other persons acting in concert with the offeror or counterparty seller on a similar basis) do not retain any interest in, legal right, or control over any of the commodity purchased on margin, leverage, or other financing arrangement at the expiration of 28 days from the date of the transaction.”

 

Continued clarity from the CFTC shows the prevalence of digital asset trading in the mainstream world, spurring responsive regulatory guidance. Just this January, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, or CME, launched Bitcoin options trading. Such a product launch showed continued demand for trading Bitcoin after the outfit launched BTC futures in 2017. 

 

Cointelegraph reached out to the CFTC for additional comments, but received no response as of press time. This article will be updated accordingly should a response come in.
