What are coin-margined futures?

Coin-margined futures are a type of futures, allowing users to use Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), or other cryptocurrencies as the base cryptocurrency and USD as the quote currency to show the trade volume in a trade. Margin and profit/loss are quoted in the base currencies mentioned above.

Therefore, if a user wants to trade coin-margined futures such as BTCUSD or ETHUSD, the user must hold BTC or ETH in their BTCC accounts.

Where to find coin-margined futures on our platform

What are the features of coin-margined futures?

Different from USDT-margined futures, coin-margined futures are quoted and settled in cryptocurrencies. For example, when you trade BTCUSD Quarterly, everything, including margin and profit and loss, will be calculated in BTC. In other words, coin-margined futures allow you to trade while holding BTC.

There are also no funding fees incurred when trading coin-margined quarterly futures, which means that trading fees can be reduced.

You can find all the information at the top of the page of each coin-margin futures contract.

How can I trade coin-margined futures?

Users can deposit BTC, ETH, or XRP, or they can convert USDT to the cryptocurrencies mentioned. For example, you have USDT in your BTCC account and would like to trade ETHUSD Quarterly. You will need to have ETH in your BTCC account.

Our web and app platforms offer a crypto conversion feature to allow you to convert between USDT and other cryptocurrencies conveniently.

For crypto conversion fees, please refer to this page.
