Crypto options

Options are an effective tool to navigate through all market conditions

Rising markets

In a positive market environment, options can be used to leverage your exposure to the market or generate additional yield by writing put options.

Sideways markets

During low-volatility periods, options can enhance a portfolio’s return by buying volatility and allow investors to position for market moves in either direction.

Falling markets

When markets are turbulent, options can protect a portfolio from losses without selling the underlying asset.
