The Luxor non-deliverable futures contract, on the other hand, is traded over-the-counter. It allows traders [contract buyers] to arbitrate the income that miners derive from a hashrate. On the other hand, it gives miners [contract sellers] a means of hedging their mining operations. More so, because they can make money by selling bets on future production or locking in their future production at a fixed price.

Elaborating on the same on a Twitter thread, Luxor noted,

In addition to giving miners much-needed coverage, this derivative will allow hedge funds, financial institutions, and other commercial firms to gain exposure to Bitcoin mining through the hash price without having to mine physical mining assets.

When the contract expires, both parties will settle the difference between the price set in the contract and the settlement value of the underlying commodity. Giving an example on how the product works, Luxor explained,

Miners with large reserves on their balance sheets typically use option contracts to manage the risks associated with fluctuating Bitcoin prices. As highlighted in several recent articles, miners are now forced to sell their HODLings to pay off their debt and cover other costs.
