Paradigm added features to the platform that permit cryptocurrency derivatives traders to enter delta neutral orders. Delta neutral trading facilitates volatility trading by hedging out the effects of price movements in the coin or token underlying an option contract. According to Paradigm Co-Founder Anand Gomes, "Delta-neutral execution is the holy grail for options traders" 
On November 19, 2020 Paradigm reported launching its anonymity-preserving Multi-Dealer RFQ (MDRFQ) platform for single and multi-leg option strategies that settle into listed options on Deribit, Bit.com, and other platforms as well as into options on CME bitcoin futures. The MDRFQ feature allows clients to request two-way quotes for options and option strategy trades from multiple dealers on a disclosed or anonymous basis without revealing their trade direction. A client can execute on the aggregated bids or offers in one-click.
Paradigm announced in February 2021 that it had launched an application programming interface (API) which would allow traders to integrate Paradigm-based complex orders and block trades into their automated work flows.
