For context, derivatives are financial instruments that derive value from an underlying asset, such as cryptocurrency. They are used to hedge risk, speculate on price movements, or obtain leverage.

Other crypto-focused entities with ISDA associate membership include the proof-of-stake blockchain protocol, Algorand (ALGO), and the Crypto.com exchange. 

The XRP community expressed excitement about the development, which comes after Ripple secured a landmark ruling against the US regulator. 


ISDA is a financial conductor, orchestrating agreements in the derivatives and swaps markets. It standardizes contracts, clarifies legal aspects, and guides participants through evolving market rhythms. 

The trade organization is headquartered in New York City with an international presence spanning 79 countries. It wields substantial influence over the derivatives market, encompassing various financial instruments tied to underlying assets.
