FTX Launches Fractionalized Stock Trading Including Tesla and Apple

Major cryptocurrency derivatives exchange, FTX, has begun trading “fractional stocks offerings” products that represent the shares of global firms.

The product was launched on October 29th in cooperation with German-licensed investment company CM-Equity and tokenization company Digital Assets AG.

More than 12 stock and cryptocurrency pairs are now available for trade on FTX, including Tesla (TSLA), Apple (APPL) and Amazon (AMZN) derivatives.

By fragmenting ownership, derivatives can be broken down into smaller scales than the entire unit, allowing retailers with less capital to invest in expensive stocks like Tesla.

Sam Bankman-Fried, CEO of FTX, explained that these products have a bright future. He further explained that assets are being digitized and retailers have unlimited creative potential to express their belief in the marketplace. With the addition of new entrants, both crypto trading and stock trading have attracted wider audiences. These fractional stock products reflect the reality that today’s traders are expanding into other industries.

Traders based in the US and other jurisdictions restricted by FTX have no right to use the stock exchange products.
