Considering the revenue potential and attractive benefits, many startups are now eager to create a crypto derivatives exchange platform. In the meantime, many of them are striving to find accurate information and the perfect way for cryptocurrency derivative exchange development. 

So to provide startups with complete knowledge, this blog covers everything about crypto derivatives exchange development from the fundamentals to the business benefits that a startup should know. Let us begins with the….  

Fundamentals of Crypto Derivative Exchange

Crypto derivative Exchange is a platform that allows traders to buy and sell a crypto asset through a financial contract at a particular time and date. This financial contract is known as crypto derivatives. With these crypto exchanges, traders can hedge their crypto assets or speculate on the price movements of cryptocurrencies. 

Speaking further, crypto derivatives are tradeable financial contracts that hold the value of the crypto asset they depend on. These crypto derivatives operate similarly to traditional derivatives bonding a contract to buy or sell a crypto asset. Thus the traders can predict the price movement without owning the underlying asset. 

Crypto derivatives are classified into three types based on their working principle. They are

  1. Future
  2. Options
  3. Perpetual contracts 

Let us have a short overview of each type one by one.


It is a contract between the buyer and seller to buy or sell an underlying asset with a specific price at a future date and time. Here, the buyer has the right to buy the particular asset till the expiry of this contract. And in the completion of trading, the buyer or seller may face profit or loss depending on the market price of the particular asset. 

Further, the buyer and seller can choose long and short options depending on the market fluctuations. If the market price of the underlying asset is stable, then the traders can opt for the ‘long option’. On the flip side, the traders can choose the ‘short option’ in case the market price is fluctuating. Once the orders are collected, the matching engine matches the orders based on the price at the fixed date and time.


The options derivatives are similar to future derivatives, but different in terms of obligation and premium. However, there is no obligation to the buyer and seller. The options derivatives offer multiple options to traders. 

Here, the buyer can select the call option to purchase an asset, while the seller can select the put option to sell an asset. And with the American option, the sale has to be done before the expiry date, and with the European option, the sale has to be done on the exact date.   

However, in options derivatives trading, the buyer does not have an obligation to buy an asset within the expiry date. So to protect the seller, the buyer has to deposit a fund to lock the asset till the expiry date of the contract. This is the premium amount, which is a non-refundable one.  

Perpetual Contracts 

Perpetual contracts are the contract between the buyer and seller to buy or sell an underlying crypto asset without having an expiry date. Here, the buyer can keep the position open by paying the funding rate until he/she wants. To open a trade position the trader needs an initial margin like collateral. 

In the meantime, the initial margin changes as per the market price. If the market moves negatively, it directly impacts the margin balance, and a margin call will arise. So traders should keep monitoring the market price and initial margin.   

These are the types of crypto derivatives. The working nature of the cryptocurrency derivative exchange will be based on the type of crypto derivatives. The trader has to choose which type of cryptocurrency derivative trading he/she wants to trade. 

We hope this overview may give you a clear idea about the fundamentals of crypto derivative exchange.

But as a startup, if you want to realize your desire then you need to choose the correct way of development.
