Cryptowatch adds Deribit market data

Cryptowatch has added live market data from crypto derivatives exchange Deribit. New markets added to the Cryptowatch trading terminal include the popular BTC and ETH perpetual swap and quarterly futures contracts. 

“We’re really excited to be adding support for Deribit on Cryptowatch,” said Cryptowatch Founder Artur Sapek. “Deribit’s futures markets are some of the most liquid and high-volume in the entire industry. They have built a fantastic, reputable trading platform and the market stats really show it.”

The new data integration enables traders to track and analyze candlestick charts, market depth, and real-time trades from the exchange that currently ranks as the seventh biggest crypto derivatives venue by volume. Since launching in June 2016, total open interest on the exchange has risen to over $200 million, with trading volumes regularly exceeding $250 million a day. 

The Panama based futures and options exchange is available in most geographies (see exclusion list) following KYC checks. The platform offers deposits and withdrawals in only Bitcoin (BTC), up to 100x leverage, an ultra-fast trade matching engine (with less than 1ms latency), and is known for storing 99% of user deposits in cold storage. 

Other reasons that set Deribit apart include the firm’s dominance in the Bitcoin and Ethereum options market, their custom portfolio margin model (that aids efficient allocation of funds across positions), and multiple third-party market makers who add liquidity to Deribit’s markets. 

“We know Cryptowatch is a firm traders favorite, and we genuinely believe they set a standard in providing a complete data and charting terminal,” said Deribit CCO Luuk Strijers. “We had many of our traders requesting this integration due to its extensive coverage and ease of use, and are very happy it is finally live. We welcome all their clients to have a look at Deribit’s data and market quality.”
