FTXs CFTC proposal faces Congressional grilling, attacks from CME

– FTX’s proposed clearing model would allow the removal of future commission merchants from its derivatives trading.
– This would bring the risk in-house by real-time settling and liquidation as well as an internal insurance fund.
– The proposal has drawn a great deal of scrutiny from the House Agriculture Committee.
– CME Group CEO Terence Duffy lambasted what he called FTX’s “false claims of innovation that are little more than cost-cutting regimes.”
– FTX’s primary mission during the hearing seemed to be to keep cool and defer to the CFTC.
– The CFTC has been quietly moving the proposal forward, as it has been more broadly pushing for greater authority over crypto as well as a much-expanded budget to account for its work in this arena.
