An introduction to Crypto Options trading

Crypto Options trading is a kind of derivative that is used to buy or sell underlying assets at a predetermined date and price. Derivatives are financial instruments that obtain their value from underlying assets and their primary utilities constitute:

  • Hedging
  • Speculation
  • Arbitrage

Crypto Options trading allows you to choose from two types of options:

  • A Call Option — This can be defined as the right to buy an underlying asset
  • A Put Option — This can be defined as the right to sell the underlying asset

To reiterate what exactly holds the definition for call and put options, a call option contract allows the owner, the right to buy an underlying asset at a fixed price on a specified date irrespective of the current market price. It should be noted however that it is not an obligation for the owner to buy. Put options contracts give holders the right to sell an underlying asset at a fixed price on a certain specified date irrespective of the market price. However, it also is not obligatory.
