What we're up to

Kalshi is the first and only federally regulated exchange where people can trade on any event. Think like the NYSE, but instead of trading stocks, you trade on the events you know and care about. Kalshi has more than 500 markets across politics, economics, financials, weather, tech, AI, culture and more.

After three years of regulatory struggle, Kalshi's historic regulatory approval from the CFTC has allowed it to launch a new asset class: event contracts. Event contracts, the fastest-growing asset class today, are elegant financial instruments structured as simple yes/no questions about the future. 

Kalshi's vision is to build the next-generation financial ecosystem for trading what we believe will be the largest asset class of all. Kalshi's vision is bold. We're on a long journey in uncharted territories. We are looking for passionate and outlier members excited to embark on this voyage toward building the financial system's next inflection point.
