Cryptocurrency traders can now access a suite of new tools tracking crypto derivatives. Data aggregator CoinGecko has announced the release of its new derivatives section to display aggregated metrics for crypto derivatives products such as perpetual swaps and futures.
According to the announcement, CoinGecko is the first data aggregator to provide information about crypto derivatives, a rapidly growing sector that includes industry leader BitMEX.
In September 2019, BitMEX reached nearly $9 billion in daily trading volume.
CoinGecko says its derivatives section will allow users to browse more than 100 derivatives products trading across 22 derivatives exchanges, including BitMEX, OKEx, Binance, Kraken, Huobi DM, PrimeXBT and Gate.io.
Traders will have full access to data including price, open interest, basis, funding rates, expiry dates and trading volume across three different tools: derivatives product overview, derivatives exchange overview and derivatives exchanges profile.
CoinGecko also plans to start tracking options as well as other derivatives offerings, such as leveraged tokens.
