In March 2019, Deribit announced that it was partnering with Caspian, a digital asset management service based in Hong Kong. Caspian integrated its trading platform with Deribit's exchange, allowing Deribit's users to trade using Caspian's software platform.[2][3]

Deribit introduced block trading over Paradigm, an encrypted communications network, in August 2019. Minimum block sizes are 40 bitcoin and 800 Ether.[4]
