FAQ

How do crypto derivatives work?

Crypto derivatives function similarly to traditional derivatives. Parties enter into a contract to buy or sell an underlying cryptocurrency asset at an agreed price on a predetermined future date. At the contract's expiration or settlement, the parties complete the transaction at the previously agreed terms, regardless of the current market price of the asset.

What are the benefits of using crypto derivatives?

With crypto derivatives, investors can easily hedge against potential price swings and leverage positions to increase potential profits, enabling liquidity and price discovery and allowing traders to participate in the cryptocurrency market without owning the underlying assets.

What are the main differences between traditional and crypto derivatives?

The main differences between traditional and crypto derivatives stem from the underlying assets and the transaction technology. Traditional derivatives are based on assets like stocks, commodities, or currencies, whereas crypto derivatives are based on cryptocurrencies. Additionally, crypto derivatives use blockchain technology and smart contracts for enhanced transparency, security, and efficiency, while traditional derivatives rely on centralized financial institutions and intermediaries.

Are crypto derivatives risky?

Yes, crypto derivatives can be risky due to the volatile nature of the underlying assets and the contract complexity. Leverage can magnify both potential gains and losses, and poor risk management can lead to substantial financial losses. Traders should be aware of the risks and apply appropriate risk management strategies.

Where can I trade crypto derivatives?

Various cryptocurrency exchanges and platforms offer derivatives trading. Bitget, established in 2018, has become a leading crypto derivatives trading platform, providing innovative products such as Bitcoin and other Futures Contracts. It is essential to choose a platform with a solid reputation, stringent security measures, and suitable trading options for your needs.

How do market manipulation and fraud impact the crypto derivatives market?

Market manipulation and fraud pose significant concerns in the crypto derivatives market. Malicious actors may engage in activities like wash trading, pump-and-dump schemes, or front-running to manipulate prices and profit at other traders' expense. The relatively low liquidity and high volatility of some cryptocurrency markets make them more susceptible to manipulation. Traders should stay vigilant, conduct comprehensive research, and use reputable platforms with strong security measures.

What are the risks of using high leverage in crypto derivatives trading?

High leverage in crypto derivatives trading can magnify both potential profits and losses. While high leverage may be enticing to increase potential returns, it also raises the risk of significant losses. The volatile cryptocurrency market can lead to swift price changes, putting traders at risk of losses. Additionally, high leverage can trigger liquidation if the position falls below the required margin level. Traders should exercise caution when using leverage and implement proper risk management strategies.
