During the past week, several discussions were held concerning the impact of crypto derivatives upon the cryptocurrency market. Crypto derivative usage remains fairly-new and attractive to institutional investors, yet many independent investors and cryptocurrency enthusiasts shy away from these trading instruments. While they’re certainly more complicated when compared to standard pair trading, they hold significant profit potential. With this being said, adoption can be stimulated, whereas additional value can be brought onto the cryptocurrency market by raising awareness around digital currency derivatives trading.
