New Offering will Provide Professionals and Institutions Greater Margin Efficiencies with Physical Crypto
CHICAGO, June 08, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–BlockFills, a global digital asset financial services, technology and trading firm, today announced it will list cryptocurrency derivatives products from CME Group, the world’s leading derivatives exchange, on its trading ecosystems.
The new offering will solve a crucial market access problem for institutions and professional traders, enabling these groups to benefit from margin efficiencies of trading cryptocurrency derivatives from CME Group alongside spot crypto and other digital instruments, thereby allowing use of their available margin across one master account.
"Legacy financial firms, professional traders and market makers have voiced their interest in trading CME Group cryptocurrency futures and options alongside our existing suite of physical crypto products," said Neil Van Huis, partner and director at BlockFills. "This listing answers that demand—the time has come in digital assets for a more professional offering that brings the appropriate technology capabilities to institutions in a compliant manner."
"In the current environment, it’s more important than ever for institutional clients to have access to deeply liquid and regulated cryptocurrency futures and options products like ours to help manage their spot cryptocurrency price risk," said Tim McCourt, CME Group Global Head of Equity and FX Products. "With the addition of our cryptocurrency derivatives and real-time market data to the BlockFills platform, alongside existing spot crypto products, institutional clients will benefit from increased access to tools that will allow them to efficiently discover prices, transfer risk or optimize their trading strategies."
"Each day, we are helping more companies, professional traders and institutions securely engage in the digital asset markets through our reliable and efficient connectivity. We are proud to continue working with CME Group to further expand and transform the digital asset industry," said Nick Hammer, co-founder and CEO of BlockFills.
BlockFills customers can expect trading to be unveiled via beta form in the third quarter (Q3) of 2022. The trading offering will then be available for global institutions and professional traders to deploy their trading strategies and allocate capital to the growing digital asset sector.

Bridgewater’s co–chief investment officer said the U.S. economy could slow down further.
The rate of U.S. inflation reached a 40-year high of 8.6% in May as overall prices for things including rent, gas and food all remain on the rise. “I personally believe that this inflation is here to stay for quite some time,” Orman recently told CNBC, prior to the release of May’s CPI data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The first is a fixed rate when the purchaser buys the bond, and the second is the inflation adjustment rate, which is reset every six months based on inflation.

Friday’s consumer-price index report for May — which showed the annual headline U.S. inflation rate climbing to 8.6% in May, with few signs of having peaked — is boosting the chances of a jumbo-sized rate increase by monetary-policy makers as soon as next week, and eliciting dire warnings that central bankers have completely lost control of prices. Fed funds futures traders now see a 21% chance of a 75-basis-point hike in June, up from just 3.6% on Thursday, according to the CME FedWatch Tool. Beneath the issue of where the Fed goes from here is a much more fundamental and serious problem: Some observers fear the U.S. central bank has already effectively lost control of inflation.
