The Future of Crypto Derivatives

-Crypto derivatives are financial instruments that derive their value from an underlying asset, in this case, cryptocurrency.
-Crypto derivatives are becoming increasingly popular, with the total value of contracts traded in the first quarter of 2018 reaching $1.3 trillion. This is up from $100 billion in the fourth quarter of 2017.
-The most popular crypto derivative is the futures contract, which allows investors to bet on the future price of an asset.
-Other popular derivatives include options, which give the holder the right to buy or sell an asset at a certain price, and swaps, which are agreements to exchange one asset for another at a later date.
-Derivatives can be used to hedge against risk or to speculate on the future price of an asset.×576.png
