Thanks CTFC you fucks.
"It is against the law to solicit U.S. persons to buy and sell commodity options, even if they are called ‘prediction' contracts, unless they are... traded on a CFTC-registered exchange... Today's action should make it clear that we will intervene in the ‘prediction' markets, wherever they may be based."
Intrade tried to apply, they said no. Reasoning? to protect investors. INVESTORS WERE HAPPY U FACKZ.
