Announcing BBOD: A High-Speed, Non-custodial Cryptocurrency Futures Trading Platform

Implementing professional trading techniques with blockchain technology to create a futures trading platform with stable coin deposits and non-custodial clients’ accounts.

BBOD in Brief

Blockchain Board of Derivatives (BBOD) is a hybrid, semi-decentralised cryptocurrency futures trading platform that provides a real-time, ultra-fast matching engine in conjunction with a decentralised, secure blockchain based settlement which is controlled by clients.

BBOD accepts deposits in the stable coin TrueUSD (TUSD) and offers futures trading on 16 cryptocurrencies against TUSD, enabling one to trade over 100 different cryptocurrency contracts in total, on both rising and falling cryptocurrency prices.

Our hybrid architecture offers the user experience of a centralised trading platform whilst providing the security and privacy of a decentralised exchange.

We look forward to launching the beta version of our futures trading platform in Q2/2019.

Our Trading Products

Financial instruments:
1. Perpetual Futures Contracts — contracts that have no expiration date
2. Standard Futures Contracts — contracts with a specific expiration date

Deposit currency: TUSD
Settlement currency: TUSD
Leverage: 50x for the most liquid contracts and 25x for our other contracts

Buy and sell futures contracts on 16 cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, EOS, NEO, Binance, Litecoin, Stellar, Cardano, IOTA, Monero, NEM, ICON, Elastos, Decred, Digibyte, all contracts vs. TUSD.

Our Key Features

We provide over 100 trading variants built on 16 popular cryptocurrencies

Traders will have the opportunity to buy and sell futures contracts on 16 carefully selected cryptocurrencies against TrueUSD (TUSD). Moreover, clients can create over 100 different trading variants of futures contracts pairs. For example, if a trader anticipates that Stellar will weaken against Cardano, he can go short on Stellar/Cardano, by selling a futures contract on Stellar/TUSD and go long buying a contract on Cardano/TUSD.

Stable Deposit Currency

Profits, losses, account balances and margin requirements are denominated in the stable cryptocurrency TrueUSD (TUSD). Such a unique feature eliminates the substantial exchange rate risk typical for very high volatility cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. For example, in unfavorable market conditions, a trader may earn 30% on a Bitcoin futures contract while losing 50% on his deposit in Bitcoin.

Use Leverage to Maximise Your Profit Potential

BBOD offers up to 50x leverage on the most liquid contracts and 20x leverage on other contracts. Thus, for example, if a trader deposits 100 TUSD, he is able to safely trade contracts worth several thousands of TUSD using leverage.

Speculation, Hedging, and Long-Term Investment

Short-term speculators will likely prefer to trade perpetual futures contracts that offer the highest liquidity. Hedgers and long-term investors (e.g. miners) would favor our standard futures contracts that are free of funding fees.

Innovative Products

Our roadmap includes the development of many sophisticated products. The ultimate goal is to provide trading products that will fulfill the needs of the fast-growing crypto community. Moving forward, we will introduce: futures contracts on indices, stocks, commodities, as well as vanilla options and other sophisticated trading products customised for professional traders.

Combining Security and Speed

Non-Custodial Accounts

Each BBOD client has his or her own personal smart contract wallet on the Ethereum blockchain. The BBOD trading platform does not hold either the clients’ digital assets or their private keys. Thus, BBOD is unable to withhold, mismanage or lose your funds because we physically do not have your private keys.

On-Chain Settlement

Once a day an update of clients’ blockchain balances is performed. The rules of this update are programmed into the smart contract. Thus, they are transparent for everyone to see, unchangeable and fully autonomous. Moreover, the update process is protected against hackers by using mathematical properties of the settlement vectors, ensuring the attack surface is minimal.

Off-Chain, Ultra-Fast Trading

The ultrafast matching engine allows us to minimise the clients order processing latency. There is no waiting for the blockchain to confirm transactions. Trading actions are confirmed on our off-chain ledger immediately and sent to the blockchain for settlement of funds once a day.

How To Start Trading on BBOD

  1. Register for a BBOD account using your email address.
  2. BBOD will then create your personal BBOD smart contract wallet.
  3. Then simply deposit TUSD to your personal wallet just created. You will have a possibility to exchange your Ethereum or Bitcoin to TUSD on our platform.
  4. Now you can start buying or selling over 100 different trading variants of cryptocurrency futures contracts with up to 50x leverage. Our matching engine is able to match 1,250,000 transactions per second.
