About Strike Options

Strike Options is a CFTC-regulated crypto derivatives product which allows you to potentially profit quickly by predicting whether the price of an underlying asset will be higher than a specific price at the time of expiry.

Several benefits of Strike Options include:  

  • Straightforward Yes/No Decision Trades: Simply choose “Yes” if you believe an asset’s price will be above the strike price. Alternatively, select “No” if you believe the asset’s price will be below or equal to the strike price at contract expiry.
  • Trading With Lower Costs: Start trading with just US$10 while receiving exposure to price movements in the underlying asset (e.g., BTC and ETH). You’re not buying or selling the actual asset, only predicting how their prices will move.
  • Clearly defined risks: Potential profits and losses are upfront prior to making the trade. Plus, exit your position anytime before the contract expires to secure your profit or limit risk.

About UpDown Options

UpDown Options is the first CFTC-regulated crypto derivatives product that gives users the tools to capture value in all market conditions. It allows you to maximize profit and minimize losses, trade with lower costs, and hedge against token price dips.

Traders can choose to buy or sell an UpDown Option depending on which direction they believe the market will go. You can select BTC, BCH, ETH, LTC, DOGE, and more as underlying assets on four available contracts each, depending on their risk appetite. This is available seven days a week. UpDown Options is currently only available to users in the US, but will be added to other jurisdictions soon.
