Crypto futures are derivative products. Future or futures contracts are an agreement to buy or sell an asset at a later date for a fixed price. Futures contracts are binding agreements to buy or sell assets they represent for an already predetermined price in the future.

The traders that are active in futures trading, will participate in the market by being both long or short-term on futures contracts. They are mostly used by traders as a way to hedge other investments or to lock profits when trading in volatile markets. The futures contracts are mad made in an attempt to avoid market volatility.

Futures trading is a kind of bet. In other words, you are betting on the price movement of BTC that is parallel to the value of the contract without owning the asset.
