CFTC Approves First Regulated Bitcoin Derivatives Exchange and Clearinghouse

Amazing!! Well, so I actually did find the official statement article in the .GOV website for the CFTC that supports this actually being true. It frankly surprises me in this stage of the Bitcoin game that this type of U.S. federal authorization would have been granted. I did expect this to probably happen, just not nearly this soon; and I definitely didn’t think it would happen until well AFTER August 1st when everyone knows for sure whether Bitcoin ends up with a soft fork, a hard fork, or whatever kind of fork. So if there does end up a hard fork with two variations of Bitcoin, will this LedgerX company be offering derivatives trading for BOTH coins, or just one of them? And if it’s only going to be one of them, then which one is it?
