Digital asset derivative is the future
In the current digital asset exchange area, there are problems such as insufficient industrial concentration, low efficiency, and insufficient professionalism, due to which a lot of business and investment opportunities emerge.
According to Bitwell, the digital asset derivative market is constantly growing. But with futures trading taking a majority part and an increasing number of problems in futures trading exposed, the market now cannot meet the needs of investment. Till now, there is no platform that can offer comprehensive products of all aspects in the field of digital asset derivatives. BitWell’s goal is to build a comprehensive derivatives platform with a rich product line. This is one of the reasons why Ceyuan Digital Assets, Dragonfly Ventures and other investment institutions thought highly of it and invested.
Besides options, BitWell also plans to launch perpetual contracts and other types of innovative derivatives to provide users with a more comprehensive and diversified product experience.
