Coin Futures Lending Exchange, or CoinFLEX, is a cryptocurrency trading venture owned by a consortium of individuals and companies, including Roger Ver, Trading Technologies, and Coinfloor that initially targeted Southeast Asian traders. It was originally called CoinfloorEX, a unit of Coinfloor. [1] The CoinFLEX platform launched in February 2019.[2]

Products and Services

CoinFLEX plans on offering its customers the world's first physically-settled futures contracts for bitcoin, Ether, and Bitcoin Cash, which will be traded against Tether and can be leveraged up to 20 times.[3]

CEO Mark Lamb said in a Bloomberg interview that offering physically-settled crypto futures means that when one of these futures contracts expires, the owner or owners of the contract are given the underlying cryptocurrency rather than a cash payment, as is the case with bitcoin futures contracts offered by Cboe and the CME Group, for example. Traders who go short will deliver a cryptocurrency such as bitcoin and receive Tether, a cryptocurrency whose value is pegged to the U.S. dollar. Traders who go long will deliver Tether and receive another cryptocurrency.[4]

CoinFLEX also intends on offering stablecoin-to-stablecoin trading services, offering trading contracts for Tether against Circle's USD Coin.[5]
