One of the main purposes of the derivatives markets is to provide protection and hedging for those who want to secure their holdings and future cash flows. Investors and traders alike can use either Short Futures positions or purchase Put Options in order to insulate themselves against the moves of the BTCUSD exchange rate.

As CBOE and CME Bitcoin Futures are introduced, Quedex Bitcoin Futures and Options Market emerges with its Bitcoin-centric trading platform. Bitcoin derivatives traded on regulated fiat exchanges (CME, CBOE) are products designed for those who don't want to have bitcoins in their portfolio.

Volatility Trading

Trade and hedge both directions at once using options strategies.

The orders you may submit are limit orders. A limit order has the following characteristics:

  • It’s either a BUY or SELL order.
  • It has two parameters: quantity – the amount you want to buy or sell and price – the order will be executed at this price or better.
  • It does not expire, unless the instrument is no longer active.
  • It may be cancelled.

During continuous trading, the orders are matched with price then time priority. However, the orders are matched differently during the auction.

During auction, you may also sometimes see a market order in the order book. It does not have a price limit – it will be executed at any price available on the other side of the order book. Market orders are placed automatically by the liquidation engine to liquidate a position. Learn more » Visit Official Website

Quedex Regulatory Status

Quedex operates under the laws of Gibraltar. Since 1st January 2018, the provision of Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology services is an activity regulated by Gibraltar Financial Services Commission. Quedex operations fall within the scope of the regulations and we are in the process of obtaining a relevant licence. Quedex has started its operations before 31st December 2017 and as such is currently operating under the transitional arrangements in accordance to the regulations. To learn more about the regulations and the transitional arrangements, please visit the DLT section of GFSC’s website.

Quedex consider the DLT regulations imposed by Gibraltar one of the most prudent and friendly in the world. Proposing a separate set of regulations for DLT instead of trying to squeeze the technology into existing laws accompanied by a principles-based approach provides an environment where blockchain can thrive. Quedex has been involved in consultations of the regulations since 2016. Learn more » Visit Official Website
