The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) released a request for input to improve its understanding of the Ethereum blockchain. As a service provider in the derivatives field, Chatham Financial is particularly intrigued with the opportunities presented by blockchain, especially smart contracts and crypto-derivatives. Among other initiatives, Chatham has been involved in the International Swap and Derivatives Association’s Common Domain Model (ISDA CDM) initiatives. Chatham is committed to advising and supporting our clients as these technological developments move from the realm of the most technologically advanced to more mundane, everyday uses. For these reasons, Chatham responded to the Commission’s request for information regarding crypto-asset mechanics and markets.
