What is Binance Futures?

Binance Futures is a trading platform futures contract of the Binance exchange. That is, you can make a profit when the market goes up or down by guessing the price of a certain electric currency in the future with Binance Futures.

The unlimited Bitcoin futures trading volume on Binance Futures is just behind BitMEX at the time of writing. For a platform that has just launched less than three months, this is yet another success for Binance.

Currently, the Binance exchange has 2 futures trading platforms. The first is the Binance Futures platform that BTA is introducing to everyone.

The second platform is Binance jex. But JEX is quite "inferior" compared to Futures. Futures platform with x125 leverage is still the "money making machine" of Binance.

On November 28, 11, the 2019nd eternal futures contract - ETH / USDT was launched on Binance Futures. With this contract the user can customize the leverage from x2 up to x1 times.

Update 4/10/2020: Currently the platform has updated many other eternal futures contracts such as: BCH, XRP, EOS, ..

Overview of leverage on Futures trading platform

When opening a position you must pay an initial amount and an amount to maintain the position. The initial amount is called the Initial Margin. The maintenance amount is a maintenance margin.

To be able to understand, please refer to 3 examples below.

Let's say a BTC price of 10000 USDT and you have 40000 USDT in a mortgage account and choose 125x leverage

Example 1: You open 1 BTC, nominal value 10,000 USDT

  • Initial Margin: 10,000 * 0.8% = 80 USDT
  • Maintenance Margin: 10,000 * 0.4% = 40 USDT
  • Collateral: 40000 - 40 = 39960 USDT
  • Giá thanh lý: 10000 – 39960/1 <0; bạn sẽ không bao giờ bị thanh lý

Example 2: You open 4 BTC, nominal value 40,000 USDT

  • Initial Margin: 40,000 * 0.8% = 320 USDT
  • Maintenance Margin: 40,000 * 0.4% = 160 USDT
  • Collateral: 30000 - 160 = 39840 USDT
  • Giá thanh lý: 10000 – 39840/4 = 40
  • Bankruptcy price: 10000 - 40000/4 = 0

Example 3: You open 6 BTC, nominal value 60,000 USDT

With 125x leverage, the nominal value does not exceed 50000 USDT. To execute this command, you must lower the lever to lower levels.

Initial Margin

Initial Margin is the amount you need to have when opening a wallet. For example, when the leverage is 125x. At this time, the actual amount you have to pay to open the position is 1/125 compared to the value of the contract.

Funding Rate

This is the amount that the Maker will have to pay to the seller (Taker). Every 8 hours Funding will be once every 0.01% ie 0.03% / day.

This 0.01% level may vary depending on market conditions. This is a direct transaction between the two parties so Binance does not collect any amounts.

Note: Funding Rate will never exceed 0.05%.
