Cboe Global Markets, a provider of global market infrastructure and tradable products, has acquired Eris Digital Holdings (ErisX), an operator of a US-based, digital asset spot market, a regulated futures exchange and a regulated clearinghouse.

Ownership of ErisX allows Cboe to enter the digital asset spot and derivatives marketplaces through a digital-first platform developed with industry partners to focus on robust regulatory compliance, data and transparency.
Cboe plans to operate the ErisX business as a subsidiary with Thomas Chippas, Chief Executive Officer of ErisX, remaining as head of the digital asset business, reporting to Chris Isaacson, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Cboe. In addition to operating the existing spot, derivative and clearing platforms, Cboe also intends to develop and distribute a range of digital asset data products. Using robust market data based fundamentally on actionable bid and offer prices from the spot crypto market, Cboe Digital plans to develop a benchmark data stream to help market participants evaluate the appropriateness of crypto execution prices.
