Bakkt exited from stealth-mode in August 2018,  promising to offer bitcoin futures contracts that are physically-settled, unlike competing platforms like CME which are cash-settled.

In an interview with CNN’s Julia Chatterley on Monday, Adam White, COO of Bakkt, says “Bakkt is really designed for the institutional trader. So this is a futures contract. That said, we expect this futures contract to trade through retail brokerages as well, so retail customers can trade this contract.”
