It was very strange at first when my husband, with his eyes burning with excitement, told me about . And I looked at it in disbelief and couldn't understand - is he making fun of me now? Or does he really believe that gambling can end in something good? But then I tried it myself and was surprised - it's real to win here! Buy a crypt, exchange it for dice and make your lucky throws.

Cryptocurrency derivatives are a form of financial derivative that allows investors to speculate on the future price of cryptocurrencies.

BitMEX is one of the largest cryptocurrency derivatives trading platform and it offers futures contracts on Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin.

The BitMEX platform is designed for traders who want to take leveraged positions in cryptocurrencies without having to actually own or store them.

BitMEX allows traders to go short or long on Bitcoin and Ethereum with up to 100x leverage.

This means that traders can open a position with as little as 1% of the total value of their trade.
