We’re pleased to announce that February Monthly ETHUSD and BTCUSD Futures Contracts are now available in the Crypto.com Derivatives Exchange, in addition to January Monthly Futures, Q4 Futures and 2022 Q1 Futures. Users can settle in USDC, control their account leverage, and enjoy discounted trading fees based on the amount of CRO they stake in the Exchange.
Futures Contracts offer traders exposure to an underlying asset at a preset price, much like Perpetual Contracts. But unlike Perpetual Contracts, Futures Contracts have a fixed expiration date. Monthly Futures will settle on the last Friday of each month at 08:00 UTC (e.g. January Futures expire on 22 February 2022).
Traders can freely long and short Monthly Futures Contracts before their expiry date. Margin is shared across all open positions in your Derivatives Wallet.

- Control over your account leverage
- Instant USDC settlement
Follow these simple steps to get started:
- Create a Derivatives Wallet
- Transfer CRO/DAI/USDC/USDT from your Spot Wallet to your Derivatives Wallet

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).

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.
