Trading launched on the platform on May 22, 2020. FTX and FTX.US CEO Sam Bankman-Fried told The Block Crypto, “I think U.S. crypto customers have been under-served for a while, and I'm excited to try to push the industry forward.”
FTX.US offers trading pairs based on bitcoin, Litecoin, Ether, Bitcoin Cash, Paxos Gold and U.S. dollar Tether. According to the FTX.US website, the platform offers 10% margins on its spot trades. Despite having separate order books from its parent, FTX.US claims, "We have a history of providing market-leading liquidity--from some of the industry's top market makers to the most liquid futures order books. Because of this FTX.US has had industry-leading order-books from day one."
In discussing its recent Series B fund raise that brought in $900 million, on July 22, 2021 FTX's American CEO, Bankman-Fried, told CoinDesk TV's audience, "When you look at FTX.US, there's an enormous amount of potential growth in the states."
In August 2021 FTX.US agreed to acquire LedgerX for an undisclosed sum. The move should enable FTX.US to expand its product offerings to futures and options trading in the U.S.
