Let’s talk about Derivatives
The exciting and fast-paced world of crypto is constantly innovating and evolving to be more relevant and convenient for its global community. Derivatives are the latest addition to the crypto world, and there are plenty of reasons why they will take the industry by storm.
Derivatives are financial contracts between two or more parties, which are based on an underlying asset. A derivatives contract involves two or more parties intending to either buy or sell an asset at a specific price in the future. Its value is derived from any change in value of its underlying asset.
They are an essential component of every evolved market, and are quickly becoming one of the major drivers of the crypto trading field.
Most crypto derivatives are offered against the most popular crypto asset – Bitcoin. Their varieties include futures, options, and swaps. The concept has found significant popularity in the crypto community, primarily because it represents an option to efficiently manage risks and effectively utilize leverage options, to maximize profits simultaneously.
