On July 15th, Coinbase Derivatives will be the first U.S. futures exchange to introduce CFTC-regulated margined futures contracts for Avalanche (AVAX), Chainlink (LNK), Polkadot (DOT), Stellar (XLM), and Shiba Inu (SHB). This significant step enhances our commitment to providing diverse and accessible trading solutions, setting us apart in the US regulated futures market.

With the addition of AVAX, LNK, DOT, XLM, and SHB, our participants and their clients gain more access points to manage risk, speculate on price movements, and participate in the cryptoeconomy with reduced upfront capital requirements. This expansion not only diversifies our product suite but can also enhance our users' overall trading experience.

As a CFTC-regulated futures exchange, Coinbase Derivatives remains steadfast in upholding the highest standards of integrity and transparency. By collaborating with Nodal Clear, as well as leading third-party FCMs and retail brokers, we provide retail investors with a safe and secure trading environment.

Coinbase Derivatives is excited to lead market accessibility, as the first U.S. futures exchange to offer margined futures contracts for these assets and we look forward to seeing the maturation of these derivatives contracts in a regulated market.

Updated on July 10th: The listing of Stellar (XLM) will be postponed https://assets.ctfassets.net/k3n74unfin40/3M68fGl0NqRk7A8ZSzWRZ6/0307ce5d7c8a1b28edbe46bd3313c586/Market_Notice_24-14.1__Stellar__XLM__Update.pdf
