Kalshi is the first CFTC regulated exchange dedicated to trading directly on the outcomes of future events.

Kalshi allows people to trade on event outcomes, from whether Brexit will happen this year to whether it will rain in NYC tomorrow.

Kalshi was founded in 2018 by Tarek Mansour and Luana Lopes Lara. The company is headquartered in New York, New York.


Kalshi’s CFTC-regulated exchange offers a new asset class: event contracts. These contracts are structured as questions about whether a future event will happen and can be answered by a simple Yes or No.


Kalshi’s event contracts allow you to capitalize on your opinion and hedge everyday risks, by covering a wide range of topics from weather to international affairs to media and more.
