What is Derivatives
Crypto derivatives are financial contracts that derive their value from an underlying asset. They allow investors to speculate on or hedge the price action of an asset without directly owning or interacting with it. Crypto derivatives are a diverse market sector, with protocols that allow users to trade perpetual contracts, options contracts, interest rate swaps, and more.
How do Derivatives work
Derivatives protocols fetch reliable asset prices from oracle services, which forms the foundation of a derivatives contract. This allows users to trade and speculate on the prices of both cryptocurrencies and assets that are not native to the blockchain, such as gold, fiat currencies, or stocks. The primary business model for derivatives protocols is to generate revenue by taking a cut of the trading fees paid by users.
