Future Crypto Plans

With Interactive Brokers now offering crypto, does this mean that t212 will be able to offer crypto trading in the near future? I think this is something many would be interested in.

Maybe in the new EU platform. In the UK one it’s not possible.

I’m from the UK and I believe it is possible as long as we are buying the underlying asset and not a derivative.

FCA only banned the crypto derivatives (Future, Options, CFDs) and ETNs, not the cryptos as they don’t have a mandate and legislation to regulate cryptos, the only exceptions at the moment are the STOs and security tokens (tokenized stocks/bonds/funds/ETFs/other securities & derivatives), as also with other financial regulators
