New contract allows exposure to cryptocurrencies in a leveraged, safe and regulated way.

B3 was one of the first stock exchanges in the world to launch cryptocurrency index funds (ETFs – Exchange Traded Funds). Now it brings another novelty to the Brazilian market – Cryptocurrency Futures.

The new contract provides yet another alternative for investors to access crypto asset price fluctuations in a regulated and safe way. Furthermore, Cryptocurrency Futures contracts facilitate the diversification of strategies for those who already trade other crypto instruments such as Cryptocurrency ETFs and the cryptocurrency spot market.

The first Cryptocurrency Futures contract to hit the market is the Bitcoin Futures. New cryptocurrency contracts will be launched soon.
