How do Derivatives work?
A derivative is a contract between two parties that is based on the value/price of an underlying asset. Common types of derivatives include futures, options, forwards, and perpetuals.
Futures Contracts allow a trader to buy or sell an underlying asset at a preset price on a fixed date in the future (i.e. the expiration date).
Perpetual Contracts allow a trader to buy or sell an underlying asset at a price that is continually updated through a funding rate mechanism, without an expiration date.
Crypto.com Exchange users need to complete Advanced level verification to trade derivatives.
Citizens or residents of the excluded jurisdictions listed here are unable to use our derivatives services at this time, and this list may be updated from time to time. Occasionally, there may be a lag between a jurisdiction being excluded and appearing on the list here.
Important Note on Derivatives Trading
You must seek professional advice regarding your particular situation before conducting derivatives trading. The risk of loss can be substantial. You may lose all or more than the Virtual Assets when trading. You may be called upon at short notice to make additional Virtual Asset contributions. If you do not make such contributions within the prescribed time, your Virtual Assets may be lost without further notice to you. You should therefore carefully consider whether such arrangements are suitable for you in light of your investment objectives, financial circumstances, your tolerance to risks and your investment experience. You should be capable of bearing a full loss of the amounts invested as a result of or in connection with any order and any additional loss over and above the initial amounts invested that may become due and owing by you. In considering whether to trade or invest, or use any derivative trading facility or other service, you should inform yourself and be aware of the risks generally, and in particular should note the specific risk factors which may apply. You must ensure the laws in your jurisdiction permit you to participate in derivatives trading and you must not take any steps to circumvent our list of excluded jurisdictions here.
