Futures, commonly known as a futures contract, is a legal agreement to buy or sell an asset at a predetermined price at a particular time in the future. As per the futures contract, the buyer must buy, and the seller must sell before the expiration date.

Cryptocurrencies are volatile. Investors buy cryptocurrencies when their value goes down and sell them when it goes up. However, this strategy might not work in your favor. If the value of crypto goes up after selling it then you’d miss on your profits. With futures, you can reduce market risks and make the best of your investment.
