I just want to know how many people in this board are option traders, and how many years you have been trading.

Options trading is very difficult task - you can win and you can loose. Need very good market understanding and cold head.

If you mean altcoin trading as well, then yes I have been doing it since middle of 2013, however I stopped around June 2014, as I had a permanent job, and it was hard to study the markets of new altcoins.

Yeah, vanilla options are quite risky, and the price could double or triple in a few hours. You can try the binary options in our site. The price is much more stable, and most importantly, you can trade volatility instead of betting on the market direction.

I have traded in Stock market options but not in bitcoin options. Options has high leverage when compared to swing or day trading. More risk more profit.

I hate options because it locks you into the trade for a specific amount of time. Lets say for example you bought a weekly options contract @ $350 and price went up to $450 then crashed down to $320. If all of this happened within the allotted 7 day time frame your trade would lose money due to the ending price being lower than entry. Whereas if you trade on margin a trade can be entered/exited at any time without restriction.

If the price went up to $450, surely, your option will be worth much more, and you can close your option to finalise the profit. You don't need to wait until it expires.

This depends on the kind of option you are using. If you are trading an 'American style' option then you can exercise the option at any time (you would likely execute what is called an exercise and close trade where you would exercise the option and instantly sell the corresponding bitcoin on the market, capturing the difference between the strike/exercise price and the market price), however if you are trading an 'European style' option then you can only exercise the option on the expiration date. Either way if the price increases then the market for such options would generally allow you to sell the option at an increased price

Our options are European style. As you said, users can sell their options at an increased price at anytime after their purchase.

This looks extremely promising. I found an error in your description on volatility trading, by the way.

Short volatility
If BTC/USD is now 400, and you know the volatility will be high [low], you can simultaneously buy a PUT option with strike price equal to 420 and a CALL option 380. Then you will be able to make profit no matter which direction BTC/USD goes in. As long as the price is within the range of 380 and 420, your options will win.
