Warrant Contracts (“Warrants”) are derivative products that enable Users to purchase the right to Buy or Sell an underlying asset (such as BTC or ETH) at a pre-agreed price (Strike Price) on a specific date (Expiry Date). Call Warrants give the purchaser the right to Buy, whereas Put Warrants give the purchaser the right to Sell.
Warrants are purchased with USDC. On the Expiry Date, any pay-off presented by the Warrant following the terms of the contract is “cash settled” with USDC.
Warrants are issued by Crypto.com and/or its affiliates. Each Warrant listed on Crypto.com Exchange has a fixed Strike Price and Expiry Date. The Warrant itself has a purchase price that varies over time. Before the Expiry Date, users with existing Warrant positions can partially or fully sell (close) their Warrant position on the exchange.
Users cannot purchase Warrants on margin for leverage. User’s Warrant positions will not be used as collateral to support other opened leveraged positions (i.e. Perpetuals and Futures).
