From the technical perspective, the approach utilized by crypto futures is pretty similar to the one that is used on traditional markets where investors speculate on the future prices of stocks and commodities. However, new technologies provide investors with a number of solid advantages.
First, crypto futures don’t require any intermediaries such as brokers, futures commission merchants (FCMs), and banks. Blockchain-based derivatives are available on many different exchanges that require paying just a small fee on each transaction.
Also, moving the process online has made it possible to invest in crypto derivatives 24/7 from any part of the world. Traders no longer depend on the brokers’ schedule and can instantly upload and withdraw their funds whenever they want.
Finally, high volatility has made it possible to significantly increase your gains via arbitrage trading while making the whole process much more convenient.
