Perpetual futures priced in Bitcoin are now available on the Binance crypto exchange and the so-called “Coin-margined” derivatives will help the users to diversify their trading as we are reading more in the upcoming Binance news today.
Coin-margined perpetual futures contracts priced in BTC are now available on Binance and unlike traditional futures contracts, the buyers and the sellers are obligated to execute a deal on the date regardless of the current conditions on the market since perpetual ones don’t have an expiration date. This means that the traders can hold their positions forever. Binance’s latest derivatives are inversed which means that they are margined and priced in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies instead of fiat.
Margins are a form of loan borrowed from one brokerage and used to purchase various assets. The loans are denominated in the US dollar or other traditional currencies. Binance’s perpetual Bitcoin-priced futures just like the quarterly counterparts allow the leverage of up to 125X which is a factor by margin trade’s value as well as the risks that can all be multiplied. According to the announcement, Binance’s crypto-margined perpetual futures aim to help other users diversify the trading methods and to improve margin efficiencies. The activity on regulated BTC futures exchanges and ETH futures volumes has hit another all-time high suggesting a growing interest from investors.
