Multi assets platform
BBOD will list both crypto futures and traditional equity, fixed income, commodity and currency futures, vanilla options. In the first stage BBOD will list perpetual contracts on the following 17 cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, EOS, NEO, Tron, Binance, Litecoin, Stellar, Cardano, IOTA, Monero, NEM, ICON, Decred, Digibyte, all contracts vs. TUSD.
Vanilla futures contracts
The bulk of existing derivatives exchanges (Bitmex, Deribit) offer inverse futures – a futures contract quoted in one currency (e.g. USD) and settled in the other (e.g. BTC). This approach complicates the PnL calculation and selecting the size of the contract. BBOD offers vanilla futures contracts quoted and settled in one currency TUSD. This makes the PnL calculation straightforward: (Exit Price – Entry Price) times the number of contracts in the base currency.
BBOD will be the first Zero-Fee Crypto Futures Exchange to be launched on December 9th, 2019. There will be no transaction fees (zero) on the BBD-settled futures markets (eg. BTC/BBD perpetual contract). Traders need to use BBD token as a collateral, so balances and PnL is denominated in BBD. The price of e.g. BBD/TUSD will be fixed during the day and set as the close price from the previous day. During the trading session, % changes of BTC/BBD and BTC/TUSD indices will be the same. Every day at 0:00 UTC the BTC/BBD index will be updated based on the change in price at BBD/TUSD spot market.
The cryptocurrency derivatives space still lacks professional, secure and reliable marketplaces to trade small and mid-cap altcoins with relatively high leverage (10-25x). Due to low volume and high volatility of the smallest coins, an exchange is imposed on frequent and unpredictable liquidations. At BBOD we applied our proprietary smoothing technique in the index calculation which greatly reduces unnatural price spikes related to liquidity drainage.
We hope that our sophisticated index calculation algorithm will allow us to become the most diverse, liquid and reliable marketplace to trade micro/small/mid-cap altcoins with high leverage, with the aim to list perpetual futures contracts on +50 cryptocurrencies by Q2/2020 and +100 by Q4/2020.
Every new cryptocurrency contract will be chosen by our community. We will organise a poll every week on Twitter and Telegram to ask our community which new contract they would like to be listed on our exchange next.
Nowadays, at almost all exchanges traders need to post different collateral to be able to trade the whole range of products. An example of this is at Bybit with 4 collaterals (BTC, ETH, LTC, EOS) or Deribit with 2 collaterals (BTC, ETH). Universal USD-based collateral is a standard at established exchanges like CME, CBOE where most of the products are quoted in USD. You deposit USD to your broker and you can trade all the products using one universal collateral.
BBOD futures contracts are settled in USD-based collateral (currently TUSD). This means that profits, losses, account balances and margin requirements are denominated in the stable cryptocurrency. All the underlying assets may be traded using one universal collateral.
If you hold coins at any derivatives exchange (Bitmex, FTX, Bybit), please be advised that the owners of the exchange have full control and responsibility to keep the coins safe. The owners hold private keys to your coins.
At BBOD custody of cryptocurrencies is completely separate from the exchange. As a result, our platform does not hold private keys to the client’s balances, instead each client holds their funds in a decentralised smart contract account. No private keys are created therefore the keys can not be stolen by hackers.
All user balances are updated daily and visible on the Ethereum blockchain. This means that every day a user’s off-chain balance (at the trading platform) matches the on-chain balance (an ethereum contract account). This design allows BBOD to pass proof-of-solvency and proof-of-reserves audits using solely publicly available data. Members of the public may monitor:
The BBOD Team believes in ‘Healing Corporations’ – i.e. making the world a better place through business and their profits, as we are strongly convinced that business should be a catalyst for a better world. We decided to donate up to 15% of our all trading fees to selected foundations, and you, as a BBOD trader will automatically participate in the contribution just by trading on our platform. Starting on Q1/2020, from every month onwards we will organise a monthly poll on our Twitter and Telegram to ask our community to pick a charity organisation which will receive donations from BBOD. In the beginning of our journey we would like to support two foundations that truly touched our hearts; Plant-for-the-Planet and One Humanity Care.
Many users who are new to BBOD, but familiar with Bitmex, Deribit or FTX may ask what are the main differences. This comparison table is meant to point some of the major differences between BBOD and our peers.
