Why Trade Crypto Derivatives When You Can Trade Spot? – CoinDesk

Options contracts are similar but they provide the option, and not the obligation, to buy that asset in the future. For instance, the agreement might be: “You agree to sell me your bitcoin for $20,000 next June, if I want it at that time. If I don’t, you keep it.” Like futures contracts, options contracts are bets on the future price of bitcoin – although options have a get-out clause.
