Perpetual Swap Contracts on Delta
Perpetual Swaps are contracts that do not have an expiry date. Unlike traditional futures where the contracts have a fixed expiry date, perpetual swaps would not expire on a particular date. A significant feature of traditional futures is that on expiry the current price converges to the spot price. Since perpetual swaps do not have an expiry, the convergence of the current price to the spot price does not take place. Thus one defining feature of Perpetual Swaps is that the current price is always trading close to the spot price.
Currently, Delta Exchange has over 19+ contracts listed on their platform and most of them are Perpetual Swaps. On the date of writing this, there is just one contract that has an expiry date, the BTCUSD _27MAR. This contract will expire on 27th March 2020 and users might be able to roll over their positions onto the June expiry contract.
