Introducing USDⓈ-Margined Battle
USDⓈ-margined Battle expands the existing Battle function, which allows users to compete with each other and earn points. This new feature blends elements of gaming and cryptocurrency trading by placing traders head to head in a battle to see who is the most profitable over in a one-minute battle period. In each battle, users can collect points regardless of the outcome.
What’s new in Battle?
The new USDⓈ-margined Battle, as the name suggests, enables users to fund their battle positions with USDT, giving them the flexibility to trade across multiple contracts. The USDⓈ-margined Battle offers a broader range of contracts to compete on. Thus, providing more trading opportunities for participants. In this latest version, users can compete on major altcoin markets such as BNBUSDT and ETHUSDT — Coin-margined battle only offers BTCUSD contracts.
USDⓈ-margined battle users will compete in a one-minute battle period (five-minute duration for Coin-margined battle), allowing users to trade against more opponents and take advantage of short-term price volatility.
In the Coin-margined battle, users predict the future direction of the coin-margined BTCUSD perpetual contract within a 5-minute window and go long or short based on their analysis. Players who predict the opposite direction will be matched against one another automatically.
In contrast, the USDⓈ-margined battle offers a different battle dynamic from the Coin-margined battle. In the USDⓈ-margined battle, users are required to predict the contract that has the highest potential to produce maximum gains within a one-minute period.
Let’s take a look at an example. Suppose John and Jane compete in a one-minute battle where John purchased a long position in BTCUSDT, while Jane purchased a long position in LINKUSDT. At the end of the battle period, if BTCUSDT gained 2% while LINKUSDT gained 1%. In this case, John wins the battle.
Battle Rules
The outcome of each battle is determined by comparing the rate of return between the two contestants. For each battle position, the outcome is determined as follows:
Winning conditions:
  • ROE for long positions = (Closing price - Entry price)/ Entry price > 0,
  • ROE for short positions = (Entry price - Closing price)/ Entry price >
Also, note that the isolated-margin mode is enabled with a fixed 50x leverage for USDⓈ battle positions. With a 5 USDT margin, users can open a 250 USDT position (leverage 50x).
Battle points are allocated based on the profitability of each battle position. Additionally, points are calculated based on the notional size of each battle position. The larger your profit, the more points earned. The points allotment are as follows:
