Binance has rolled out an Ethereum Futures platform that provides for 50 times leverage. Thus, traders will be able to bet for or against the future price of Ether. The ETH futures contracts are tradable versus the Tether stable coins (USDT).
The exchange is providing for 50% trading fee discount on all the Binance Contracts until December 13, 2019.
Binance clarified that trading “BTC/USDT and ETH/USDT perpetual contracts” is similar to trading “BTC/USDT and ETH/USDT trading pairs” in the spot market. Both of these are priced well and settled in the same manner.
The Binance team further stated, “Binance allows for highly leveraged trading using a sophisticated risk engine and liquidation model. This number will change depending on the size of the position – the larger the position, the lower the leverage allowed.”
The futures trading volume of Binance has been increasing steadily. The current daily futures BTC volume is at 185,835 Bitcoin is worth $1.4 Bitcoin. This is nearly 40% greater than the overall total spot trading volume of Binance.
CZ (Changpeng Zhao), CEO of Binance, stated, “Binance Futures is a relatively new product, so is the crypto derivatives industry. We are committed to driving product innovations and growing our industry.”
Binance, along with TravelbyBit, has created travel reward cards, which are backed by the cryptocurrency. The travel card will work just like a prepaid card, which provides access to additional discounts and rewards, which users will be able to load using Bitcoin, Binance, Binance Coin, and Ontology. The card is expected to be released by early the next year and will primarily target travelers in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, Australia, and Europe to expand further.
