Options’ contract & Futures’ contract
The options’ contract allows the buyer (be it the option holder or the owner) to sell and buy an essential instrument or asset at a specific Strike Price on a set date, relying upon the category of the option.
Its feature of ‘Call Option’ provides the owners with the right to make a purchase at a certain price for a certain duration. On the other hand, its feature of ‘Put Option’ allows the seller to sell at a certain price for a certain duration. The Options’ Contract can generally be used for leverage and hedging.
A Futures’ Contract is an implied agreement made between two parties – a seller and a buyer – wherein the latter agrees to buy from the former. The agreement involves a set amount of cryptocurrency, at a certain time in the future, for a pre-defined price. Both the parties agree on these details at the time of the transaction. You can freely trade futures’ contracts on exchanges because they are standardized in terms of contract sizes and expiry dates.
A buyer cannot identify the seller, and neither can a seller identify the buyer. Unlike options’ contracts, both parties are under obligation to carry out the transaction at the suitable time.

Dimensions Network competitors
Nowadays, the significant part of cryptocurrency trading activity involves the selling and buying of major cryptocurrencies. However, there has been very little development in offering derivative products, excluding Bitcoin, where only ‘approved’ investors can avail of the new platforms.
It becomes too difficult to access the renowned exchanges when there is price volatility, their services are either inaccessible due to malicious attacks, or are overloaded by users.
This deficiency of real-time system availability frustrates users, and leads to considerable losses as a result.
Today’s fiat markets manage large trading volumes, and Dimensions Network is exploiting these methodologies and lessons to set up its own platform.
There are many newly funded projects that comprise derivative trading and exchange platforms in their roadmap. Yet, most of them focus on establishing decentralized networks on untried and untested technologies, which consumes a substantial amount of time, and may not be as efficient as a centralized platform.
The trading engine may therefore competition from these newly funded projects, for example; Jibrel Network, Asteroid. In addition, it considers LedgerX and Deribit as its direct competitors in the derivatives market.

It intends to fund the development and launch of the real-time currency from profits that it will obtain through the platform.

- it has reserved 15% for its marketing and sales process.
- The company also reserves 15% for compliance and regulation.
- For admin and operations it has held 10%.
- It also reserves 5% for exchange liquidity.
- 5% for legal.
- 5% for bug bounty.

The final success of this platform will surely rely upon the funds accumulated during the ICO. So far, the company’s social channels do not hint at high levels of investor interest.
However, if the optimistic financial projections of the STC turn out as anticipated, then the token holders will benefit from an attractive commission program, which ought to convert into increased popularity for the new cryptocurrency asset.
