Introducing the TRXUSDT and EOSUSDT Quanto Perpetual Contracts

It’s very important to us to list the assets that command liquidity and matter most to our users – even if that means a slight change of plans.

Outside of the list of Altcoin Perpetual Swaps previously announced, we will also launch a TRXUSDT perpetual swap contract with up to 33x leverage at 04:00 UTC on 17 March. The YFIUSDT perpetual swap will be launched as soon as market conditions are right while the EOSUSDT perpetual swap will launch as planned at 04:00 UTC on 17 March.

It’s a great time to be on BitMEX, with excellent platform performance alongside top tier liquidity and security. Sign up for an account here. Users can also trade on the go with BitMEX Mobile, available in over 140 countries.

More Details

Like other quanto contracts, the TRXUSDT and EOSUSDT products will have a fixed Bitcoin multiplier regardless of the Tether/underlying coin price. This allows traders to put on long or short positions without ever touching either the coin itself or USDT.

Traders post margin in XBT, and earn or lose XBT as the rate changes. This quanto risk premium may be one of the factors which results in the swap trading at a premium / discount to the spot price – see our blog post explaining this concept for ETHUSD.
