What are the differences between stock trading and Futures trading?

Futures trading is different in nature from that of the traditional stock market. Shares represent fractional ownership of an index-listed company, whereas Futures contracts essentially give the trader exposure to an underlying asset, whether it be an agricultural commodity like corn or a Crypto coin like Ethereum.

Furthermore, Futures contracts can be more varied than traditional corporate stocks, and can be accessed for comparatively lower margins. However, the trading of both shares and Futures are generally organized by brokers and exchanges.
