According to Bloomberg News, the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) Bakkt bitcoin futures contract has been postponed several times. People familiar with the matter said that the most worrying issue for the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) is how the customer's tokens will be stored to prevent possible theft and manipulation. Three people who asked not to be named said that ICE is considering applying for permission from the New York financial regulator to allow Bakkt to keep its own tokens. However, the Intercontinental Exchange still needs the approval of the CFTC to obtain the Ruozhou license. One person familiar with the matter said that the CFTC recognizes national bank and trust licenses, and that if ICE receives permission from the New York Financial Services Authority to hold tokens, it will allow ICE to list futures through a self-certification process. The person familiar with the matter also said that the CFTC may still ask the public to comment on Bakkt, or an evaluation risk group to approve these futures contracts, CFTC will not regulate the spot market of Bitcoin. However, ICE and CFTC spokespersons declined to comment.
