ErisX considers a variety of factors when we look at products to list on our platform, including the regulatory and legal implications under state and federal law, as well as general market conditions of the products.  We also consider our ability to offer trading in the products consistent with industry best practices pertaining to market oversight, surveillance, and applicable regulatory requirements.

Additionally, we evaluate the impact that new products will have on our technology infrastructure, and consider any potential effect on existing Exchange systems, including degradation of service, security and the need for upgrades or other modifications.

Fork Policy

Unless the Exchange explicitly states that it will support a fork for a digital coin, you should presume that the fork WILL NOT be supported.

When an underlying blockchain protocol changes such that there is a split in the blockchain it is referred to as a “fork.” Any expected fork of a blockchain will be carefully evaluated by Eris Exchange, LLC (“Eris” or the “Exchange”) management and the Exchange’s Practices Committee, Participant Committee and the Regulatory Oversight Committee in consultation with Eris Clearing, LLC (the “Clearinghouse”).   

Our full policy sets forth the considerations that will be considered when a fork occurs.
