Deribit is an Amsterdam-based futures and options trading platform that lists derivatives priced in U.S. dollars for bitcoin and Ether underlying products. The contracts are physically settled.

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.[1][2]

Deribit introduced block trading over Paradigm, an encrypted communications network, in August 2019. Minimum block sizes are 40 bitcoin and 800 Ether. The company's chief operating officer, Marius Jansen, told BNN Bloomberg that Deribit's block trading is not regulated because Dutch law defines a derivative as a cash-settled contract.[3]
