Kalshi is the first CFTC regulated exchange dedicated to trading on 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. The contracts cover a wide range of topics from weather to international affairs to media and more. Kalshi makes money by charging a transaction fee on the expected earnings on the contract. The company's mission is to allow people to capitalize on their opinions and hedge against everyday risks.
