Argentina Aims for First Crypto Futures in Latin America

  • Local futures market Rofex presented project to the regulator
  • Argentines embarce cryptocurrencies amid high inflation

Argentina’s largest futures market wants to be the first Latin American exchange to launch regulated Bitcoin futures. 

Local exchange Matba Rofex revealed last week that it submitted a proposal to Argentina’s securities regulator to launch Bitcoin futures in Argentine pesos. Talks, which began a few months ago, are on track, but the regulator has not yet ruled on the matter.
