Hello

Let's suppose you are a BTC seller

What do you do to hedge the bear market and cover losses due to BTC-Fiat volatility?

In my opinion it's better to keep liquidity low and buy BTC to sell only few min before the transaction

Any idea?

It's better an option IMHO. That's why if i go short and BTC is going up, i have a loss. Otherwise, you have the opportunity to exercise (or NOT) the put option on the bear market.

Any other suggestion?

What exchanges offer the options and futures ?
