What are crypto derivatives?

Crypto derivatives are financial products that have their value derived from an underlying cryptoasset e.g. Bitcoin. They commonly come in two forms: futures or options.

Both are agreements to buy or sell a certain quantity of a cryptoasset (e.g. 1 Bitcoin) for a certain price some time in the future.

Perpetual swaps are basically futures without a delivery or expiry date!
