Crypto derivatives exchange Deribit will soon launch Bitcoin (BTC) volatility futures, giving investors a direct way to measure and trade BTC market volatility.

On March 17, Deribit introduced BTC DVOL futures — a derivatives contract built on the Deribit Bitcoin Volatility Index, which measures the implied volatility of the largest cryptocurrency.

Deribit’s volatility gauge provides a 30-day outlook on investors’ expectations for annualized volatility. Like other volatility products, BTC DVOL can potentially help traders with risk management, portfolio hedging or market speculation.

Volatility-as-an-asset is widely traded in traditional finance, with the most popular product being the Chicago Board Options Exchange Volatility Index, also known as VIX.
