CRYPTO QUESTIONS SEGMENT

  • QUESTION FROM E: WHILE I AM AT HOME DURING THIS QUARANTINE, WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT ME DAY TRADING CRYPTO? FUTURES, OPTIONS OR JUST PLAIN SPOT?
  • QUESTION FROM VICTOR: ARE THE MULTIPLIERS THE SAME FOR CRYPTO OPTIONS? SO IF I SELL ONE PUT DO I GET 100 COINS? WHAT ABOUT THE CONTRACT SPECS? DO THEY ALLOW EARLY EXERCISE? ALSO – DO THEY WORK THE SAME. FOR EXAMPLE, IF I SELL A PUT SHORT CAN I USE THAT TO GET INTO A LONG $BTC POSITION OR ARE THEY CASH SETTLED? INTRIGUED BUT SO MUCH CONFUSION ON MY END. 
  • QUESTION FROM ELE5: WHAT IS GOING ON WITH BAKKT CRYPTO? THEY LAUNCHED TO A LOT OF FANFARE AND HAVE RAISED HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS. IT SEEMED LIKE EVERYONE WAS INTO THE PHYSICALLY-SETTLED CONTRACTS BUT THAT HASN’T TRANSLATED INTO VOLUME?
  • QUESTION FROM JJLC:  WHICH OF THE MAJOR BROKERS DO YOU FEEL HAS THE BEST CRYPTO PRESENCE?
