A Beginner’s Guide to MKR Futures Trading.

What are MKR Futures?

MKR futures are legal contracts for buying or selling MKR at a future date.

MKR futures is a special contract representation of existing MKR crypto, and the actual settlement of MKR (or cash) will happen in the future - when the contract is exercised

MKR futures are often used to hedge against price changes of MKR itself. On the other hand, they enable investors to speculate on the asset's underlying trend. To put it simply, you can purchase (buy long) MKR futures if you expect the crypto price to go up and when you think that the price will fall, you take a short position (buy short) to reduce the impact of losses.
