Delta’s approach to crypto options trading

Delta exchange already caters options for Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH), in the pattern of a designed contract called ‘move’. As per the reports, conservative options are considered to be tradable derivative contracts, allowing market participants to purchase either a right to buy, also called a call option or sell, a put option, a given asset at a specified ‘striker price’. This strike price is calculated on or prior to the contract’s expiration date. 

All the Delta’s options serve exposure factors including ‘moneyness’, called the comparison asset’s current price and the strike price, time to expiry, and implied volatility. To know more, always contact the team members via Binance customer care number which is always functional. 

Talking of Delta’s Move contracts, it has been designed to allow market participants to specifically trade volatility in digital assets, without taking any directional risk, said by Balani. He further on explained that:

While trading these contracts, a trader is targeting on the absolute value of the price of the coin instead of the coin value going up or down. Balani previously explained in an interview with Cointelegraph that the contract is a blend of a call and a put option, therefore, intended to make it conveniently for understanding for non-professional traders. Talking about fees, it currently charges for ETH and BTC Move contracts, the exchange will be taking a 0.05% rate on the contract. The BNB and LINK are weekly contracts and provide up to 10X leverage.

Pankaj Balani said that Delta is expecting close to $4 million worth trading on BTC Move contracts and about $2 million in ETH Move contracts regularly.
