Outstanding features of Bybit . exchange
Perpetual Futures Contracts
Different from instant settlement in spot transactions; or payable on a specified date in the futures contract. Perpetual futures contracts allow users to hold positions for as long as they like and have no expiration date.
This opens up more opportunities, helping users get a better price than the futures contract. Currently Bybit has 3 types of derivative transactions including USDT perpetual, Inverse forever, Inverse futures
USDT perpetual contract
The perpetual USDT contract is a linear contract. The margin used for the linear contract is USDT.
Perpetual Inverse / Inverse Futures Contracts
Inverse/Inverse Futures Contract means that if a trader wants to trade BTC/ETH/XRP/EOS contracts, the base cryptocurrency must be used as margin to trade respectively.
Difference between perpetual Inverse contract and perpetual USDT contract
Compared to the Perpetual Inverse contract, the USDT Perpetual contract includes the following:
- The margin and profit and loss calculations of the USDT perpetual contract are more direct than that of the Perpetual Inverse contract. When trading 1 BTC and the price moves 100 USDT, the trader's profit/loss will be 100 USDT. The Profit and Loss chart of USDT contracts will be a linear line.
- Perpetual inverse contracts are traded against the base cryptocurrency. Traders need to hold some volatile BTC/ETH/EOS/XRP as margin. Therefore, even if traders choose not to trade, holding crypto is still inherently risky. USDT perpetual contract, on the other hand, uses the stablecoin stablecoin as margin, and thus, traders do not have to hedge their positions to avoid the risks of holding crypto.

Dual pricing mechanism
Before the problem of market manipulation that often occurs on exchanges, Bybit has used a double price mechanism to protect traders, ensuring users have a fair trading "environment".
Along with that, the exchange uses Mark Price (global spot index price) as a liquidation tool, not Last Traded Price (last trading price) like most exchanges.
For you to better understand the exchange using Mark Price instead of Last Traded Price; Blogtienao gives the following example:
If the price of Bitcoin in the last trade plummeted from $8.000 to $5.000; Mark Price will not be affected and will remain at $8.000. This will protect traders' positions from being liquidated due to a sudden price drop.
Mark to market (Accounting at market price)
On Bybit, contract prices are quoted at the spot market price with the final transaction price close to the spot price.
Flexible staking with ByFi
At ByFi, you can earn competitive returns with low risk across staked tokens — BTC, ETH, USDT and USDC — and stable APY. Profit will be calculated automatically and transferred to your ByFi account every day.
Daily profit depends on the type and number of tokens you have staked. They are calculated according to the formula:
Daily Profit = number of tokens staked * (APY of staked tokens / 365)
Profit will begin to be calculated from the next day (T+1) after you have staked the token, and will be transferred to your ByFi account every day from the next day after the start of profit calculation (T+ 2). On the day you get your staked assets back, you will have no additional profit.
Currently, users do not need to verify KYC and can still use ByFi.
Leverage up to x100
In perpetual futures contracts, users can leverage up to 100x leverage. In addition, traders can adjust the leverage and margin of an open position at any time.
This is a very flexible form of risk management and guarantees the best possible trading experience.

- BTC/USD: 1: 100
- ETH/USD: 1:50
- EOS/USD: 1:50

Some basic knowledge before trading
Bybit exchange currently supports 3 types of transactions: Limit, Marker and Conditional. Below, Blogtienao will introduce more about these commands.
This is an order that helps you buy coins at the price you want. For example, if you want to buy a coin for 7.500 USD, you will set a Limit for 1BTC at 7.500 USD.
This is an order that helps you buy coins instantly at market prices.
For example ETH drops 30% and you find this is a bargain price, you will place a Market order to buy ETH immediately.
This type of order is similar to Limit. However, this type of conditional order has an additional “Trigger Price” entry. This section helps you to immediately seize the opportunity to buy / sell with a predetermined price target if the market has unexpected fluctuations.
Two important concepts that traders need to know when choosing to trade on Bybit
When you want to trade on Bybit, then in the “trade” section (to go to the trading interface) you need to choose one of two types of contracts: USDT Perpetual and Inverse Perpetual.
So these two types of contracts are, how are they different?
A USDT contract is a contract that uses only USDT as the quote and settlement currency.
Essentially, this type of contract allows for two-way transactions. That is, traders can hold Long – Short positions simultaneously and with different leverage.
The aim is to replicate the basic spot market but with high leverage. This USDT contract does not expire and can be used to tie the underlying reference price index closely.
To use this type of contract, you only need to hold each USDT in your wallet. All gains and losses will be denominated in USDT.
*This is a new type of contract implemented on the desktop interface
This is a type of contract that uses BTC/ETH/EOS/XRP as the base currency. Traders need to confirm the number of transactions in USD, then use the cryptocurrency (like BTC, ETH) to calculate the profit, profit and loss ratio.
For example, if you want to trade with the BTC/USD pair, you must use BTC as the base currency. If you want to trade on ETH/USD pair, you need to hold ETH.
One more note that you only have BTC in your wallet, you cannot trade on the ETH/USD pair. However, on Bybit there is an asset swap function, so you can swap BTC into ETH to trade on the ETH/USD pair.
