What are cryptocurrency derivatives?
An alternative way to trade cryptocurrencies is to buy and sell derivatives from them. They change the price depending on the value of the underlying asset.
An important advantage of derivatives is trading in both directions. A trader can buy contracts not only for an increase in Call (Buy), but also for a fall in the Put (Sell) price. In the second case, he borrows the asset from the exchange / broker and sells it at the current price. After the price falls, he buys the coin back cheaper and returns it. The difference is in your pocket.
Bybit crypto derivatives in New Zealand include the following types:
- Forwards are an obligation to buy / sell an asset by the closing date. Unlike CFDs, the contract is mandatory, but it can also be thrown off at any time. It trades in lots, requires collateral, therefore it is in demand among large players - banks, hedge funds, or simply rich traders who want to play big without breaking the bank on commission.
- Options - Options, in turn, are derivatives that allow an individual to have the right to buy or sell an underlying asset at a specified price at maturity. However, no obligations are attached to option contracts. There are two types of option contracts: Call Option (It gives traders and investors the right to agree to buy an asset at a specific price and time) and Put Option (It gives traders and investors the right to agree to sell an asset at a specific price and time).
- Futures contracts are one of the most popular types of derivatives. It grants buyers the right to purchase the asset and sellers to sell the asset at a fixed price in the future (on an agreed date). Most traders close their futures contracts before the expiration of the contract, while taking in their profit or loss. Typically, traders use a futures contract to hedge other investments when trading in a volatile market, such as the cryptocurrency market.
- Perpetual swaps are a type of derivatives that resemble futures contracts, except that they have no expiration or settlement. Traders pay the funding price for perpetual swaps, which align the swap price with the price of the underlying asset. Generally, perpetual contracts tend to mimic the concept of a margin-based spot market. Thus, the trade will be close to the base index price. However, depending on the specifications of the contract, the agreement may differ from its funding rate, leverage, and more. Unlike futures contracts, perpetual swaps have a slower price change, making them a suitable tool for investors who prefer long positions.
What is a crypto derivatives exchange?
Crypto derivatives exchanges are online platforms that open and make it easy for everyone to access decentralized (P2P) cryptocurrency trading.
Crypto derivatives are now among the most ubiquitous financial products on any crypto exchange or trading platform due to the increased interest of the trading community. Trading cryptocurrency derivatives has its advantages as it allows users to mitigate the risks associated with volatility and hedge against potential losses. The Bybit platform offers flexible deposit options that include BTC, ETH, EOS, XRP and even fiat currencies that can be used for making deposits up to $ 5 to start trading.
How is trading in derivative cryptocurrency instruments organized?
Crypto traders use derivatives to manage risk, and this process can also be called hedging. Since derivatives are commonly used to speculate on future prices in a volatile market, traders usually use them to protect their portfolios from any price fluctuations. For example, a crypto trader hedges with perpetual swaps, which involve betting on opposite outcomes to mitigate the potential risks of serious losses, especially from a market dump.
Another common use of derivatives in crypto trading is to speculate on asset prices without buying the underlying asset. Traders can buy a futures contract instead of buying a real coin. This means that the trader only needs to spend the minimum amount to gain access to the market. Thus, as the price of the underlying asset fluctuates, the trader can adjust his position accordingly. Most traders use put options to manage their risk.
The Bybit derivatives trading platform itself has been operating since 2018.
