Cryptocurrency Derivatives Series: UK-based ‘B2C2’ Unveils Gold-Derivatives Against Bitcoin

Synthetic trading mechanism enables traders to take a short or long position without actually buying or selling an underlying asset. The benefit of trading gold (or bitcoin) in a derivative form (synthetically) is that it’s simpler to trade than the cash underlier for a variety of operational reasons, and typically represents the majority of activity in the product/asset.

The firm reportedly received the regulatory approval from the FCA for the crypto derivatives in the U.K. earlier this year.

B2C2 offers crypto trading in bulk through its API service and provide liquidity for Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ripple, and Ethereum Classic in USD, GBP, EUR, JPY, SGD, AUD, CAD, CHF and more.
