The company has a very big plan for the coming product as it will have special features such as cash or physical settlement, European style options, block trades, broad distribution and liquidity Capital efficiency, and analytics options.

CME Group, who is also offering futures trading, is a powerful opponent of Bakkt. But the ICE subsidiary platform is emerging slowly. This growth is reflected in the sentiments of the CEO shared by Kelly:

Notably, we saw a record 590 contracts of Bakkt Bitcoin Monthly Futures change hands yesterday, October 23. We also completed a milestone with seamless physical deliveries in both our daily and monthly bitcoin futures contracts.
