Ethereum options trading has picked up since the start of the year
It looks like 2020 will be the year for crypto derivatives trading. Many platforms support Bitcoin futures trading, such as crypto exchanges BitMEX, OKEx, Huobi, and Binance as well as institutional trading platforms Bakkt, CBOE, and CME, besides options trading on assets other than Bitcoin.
Besides the outstanding performance of Bitcoin, there has also been some interest in Ethereum derivative tools. Since the start of the year, Ethereum options trading has picked up sharply as only a few days have seen a spike in $ 5 million. While it is still lackluster compared to Bitcoin futures trading, which is accumulating $ 20 billion on some days in January, this is still a good sign and is likely to be profitable.
