Twitter question no 1.

Delta Exchange have a very interesting element called “ ROBO TRADING STRATEGIES”, so is this an artificial intelligence that help users to trade?

Pankaj Balani:
Robotrading allows retail traders access the benefits of Algo trading.

It is a suite of automated trading strategies to grow your crypto on auto-pilot.

The strategies available on the platform will range from:
1) Momentum trading on BTC, ETH, DeFi assets, top crypto-assets to
2) Low risk cash and carry strategies and more.

Traders will be able to compare different strategies based on their past performance and will be able to ‘Subscribe’ to a particular strategy using BTC or Tether (USDT). Via the dashboard, traders will be able to see how many other traders have subscribed to a particular strategy, the fee structure for any strategy and other details.

Here’s a quick start guide on Robo Trading Strategies:

Lets move to the last question from this segment….

How did you manage to give options on smaller cap coins?

Pankaj Balani:
We have always been ahead of the curve in bringing products to the crypto derivatives market.

We believe that 2021 will be the year of Options and we had started to prepare for it in early 2020 itself.

We developed margining and risk management engine to handle large and sharp price swings in prices of these options.

We also developed ecosystem and market makers to offer options on top names.

these efforts are bearing fruit now and we are able to offer options on bunch of smaller coins

We are the only exchange to offer options on smaller names

✍️ Telegram live Questions answered by Delta Exchange ✔

How are the strike prices of Options listed on Delta determined?

Pankaj Balani:
In 2 ways:

1) Fixed strikes which are rolled out as market moves up. So when BTC moved to 50K we launched 50.25K, 50.5K, 51K strikes and so on on.

2) For smaller alts we have daily and weekly options. At every expiry (daily 12 noon UTC) we launch ATM strikes for next day. Every friday (at 12 noon UTC) we launch ATM strikes for next week and so on

Nastaya 👄:
What Referal policies will Delta Exchange have for users when they introduce and invite more people to use the platform? What plans does Delta have for mentoring and educational programs for beginners to enter the crypto market?

Microbyte Trader:

Will the utility of DETO be exactly like what BNB is doing for Binance or it comes with something extra ?

Pankaj Balani:
DETO has many more features than any other exchange coin.

Key features of DETO:

1. Trade Farming: Traders earn DETO proportional to their trading on Delta.

2. Liquidity Mining (AMM) on single currency pools (BTC and USDT) and more will be added eventually.

3. Robo-Trading: Earn potential yield and DETO by investing in trading strategy pools.

4. Minimum Support Price (MSP): Delta will accept DETO for >= $0.10 as trading fees.

5. Buybacks: Delta Exchange will use a part of the fee earned on the exchange to buyback DETO.

6. Staking and Exchange Utility: Staking with fair lock-up periods. Use DETO to pay fees, use as margin, etc.

There are 2 ways to get our $DETO token:

1. When it gets listed on our exchange.

2. You can earn DETO via Trade Farming, Referral Mining and Liquidity Mining as mentioned here:
