DERIVATIVES EXCHANGES

by DeFi Daddy

Crypto derivatives of different kinds can be traded officially both on traditional exchanges and regulated crypto exchanges
As per traditional exchanges, Bitcoin futures are currently offered by CME Group, as CBOE stopped adding new contracts in March. Meanwhile, in December 2018, Nasdaq stated it was considering launching Bitcoin futures in the first half of 2019. As cryptocurrencies are expected to gain more mainstream and institutional adoption, it is highly likely that more traditional players will trade crypto derivatives soon. 

Institutional exchanges are also offering these types of contracts. Institutional crypto derivatives provider LedgerX started trading regulated swaps and options contracts in October 2017, shortly after receiving approval from the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). Another institutional crypto platform, Bakkt, delayed the launch of its Bitcoin futures trading several times but has finally scheduled the testing of the product for July 2019.
Major crypto exchanges are also actively involved in crypto derivatives trading and offer futures and perpetual swaps trading, which is a contract with no expiration, with 100x leverage, and delivers them through an optimized and scaling engine. A range of popular crypto assets such as Bitcoin, Etherium, USDT.
