Spot trading is the process of buying and selling cryptocurrencies for immediate delivery.
For example, if you bought 1 BTC with INR in the spot market, it will get credited to your wallet immediately.

Now, you have an understanding of the spot and futures market, let’s understand the key differences.
Each contract in the futures market has a specific settlement date in the future. Wherein in the spot market, trades are executed between buyers and sellers for immediate delivery.
