    What is a derivative?

    A derivative is a class of financial contracts that derive their value from the performance of an underlying entity. Derivatives where this underlying is a cryptocurrency or a cryptoasset, e.g. Bitcoin, Ether etc are known as cryptocurrency derivatives. Trading of crypto derivatives does not entail actual buying or selling of bitcoins or any other crypto. The value of the crypto derivative contract changes with the change in price of the underlying cryptocurrency. Thus, trading crypto derivatives in an alternative way to get exposure to an underlying cryptoasset or cryptocurrency.

    Types of Crypto Derivatives

    The prominent types of cryptocurrency derivative contracts include futures, options, contracts for difference (CFD), perpetual swaps and swaps. Crypto derivative contracts are traded both on exchanges and over the counter (OTC). Exchange traded derivatives are standardized contracts and are typically very liquid. In contrast, OTC derivatives are bespoke contracts between two parties.

    Uses of Crypto Derivatives

    There are largely three categories of crypto derivative use-cases. These are: (a) hedging: Which is essentially insurance for adverse price movements of a crypto asset you already own. For e.g. miners may want to lock-in the price of mined Bitcoin without selling it, (b) speculation: traders employ cryptocurrency derivatives to create leveraged pay-off profiles based on their market view, and (c) access: traders that are not able to buy Bitcoin or cryptocurrencies directly could potentially gain exposure to them via derivatives on a crypto trading platform or a cryptocurrency derivatives exchange.

    Benefits

    For traders and investors, crypto derivatives offer several benefits that are unavailable in spot crypto trading. These include: (a) ability to go both long and short, i.e. profit from both rising and falling market, (b) leverage trading which enables a trader to take bigger positions and (c) strong liquidity which reduces the crypto trading charges.
