Coinbase to Offer Faster Transactions on Derivatives Exchange Through Partnership With Infrastructure Provider TNS
Coinbase is teaming up with U.S.-based infrastructure provider Transaction Network Services (TNS) to enable faster, more efficient transactions on its derivatives exchange, the companies announced Tuesday.
Coinbase unveiled the Derivatives Exchange (CDE), which is regulated by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), in June 2022 to attract more retail traders as futures contracts require less upfront investment than traditional bitcoin futures products.
The cloud-based financial trading infrastructure deployed by TNS for the exchange will enable institutional investors to increase storage capabilities and process large veri sets with minimal delay.

“Crypto has witnessed both volatile and liquid markets, and with institutional adoption remaining strong, we believe the time is right for the offering that TNS brings to the table,” CDE’s CEO Boris Ilyevsky said. “Dedicated cloud infrastructure connectivity coupled with our derivatives exchange represents a mission-critical step toward supporting and maintaining a vibrant and reliable crypto derivatives market.”
Crypto derivatives, such as futures and options, are a popular trading tool for investors looking to leverage or manage risk.
