Title: Protection of Digital Asset Customer Collateral and Cleared Digital Asset Swaps Customer Collateral-Conforming Amendments to the Commodity Broker Bankruptcy Provisions and Other Commission Regulations 

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission ("Commission") expects to propose separate segregation regimes for futures commission merchants and derivatives clearing organizations for:  (1) customers trading futures contracts and options on futures contracts on digital assets that provide for physical delivery; and (2) customers clearing swaps that provide for the physical delivery of digital assets.  The Commission further expects to propose to revise its bankruptcy regulations to establish new account classes to reflect the separate segregation regimes for digital asset futures contracts and digital asset swaps that provide for physical delivery.
