Introduction to Binance Options
An Overview of Binance Options
Binance Options provide individual and professional investors unparalleled access to crypto options trading with the following edges:
Binance Options are priced and settled in stablecoin, which makes cost and profit calculations straightforward for investors. Unlike Coin-Margined Options, in periods of high volatility, Stablecoin Options allow investors to enter and exit positions stably and securely without having to worry about the nominal value of the underlying collateral drastically devaluing.
Binance is the largest crypto exchange in the world, working closely with sophisticated market makers to provide Options traders with one of the lowest fees in the market (0.02% transaction fees and 0.015% exercise fees).
Low Capital Requirement
With Binance Options, traders only have to pay the required Options Premium to get the same exposure as holding an equivalent Futures or Spot position. As such, Options are a great way to make leverage trades due to the lower capital requirements.
What is the difference between Binance Futures and Binance Options?
Options are standardized contracts that allow investors to trade an underlying asset at a predetermined price before a specific date (the expiration date) without the obligation to do so. In comparison, Futures contracts obligate the contract holder and issuer to buy or sell the underlying asset on a specified future date.
