​Binance Launches Futures Trading on its iOS App

Binance, the leading global cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume and users, now supports futures trading on its newly released iOS app. In this release, users with the Binance iOS app can trade BTC/USDT contracts at up to 125x leverage as well as trade ETH/USDT contracts at up to 50x leverage on an industry-leading, fast and robust matching engine, from the convenience of their iPhones. 

Last October, Binance also launched futures trading on its  Android app, and the latest Binance Android app V1.15.0  is now available for download and updating on Google Play, which also allows users to trade BTC and ETH contracts at their fingertips. 

Binance Futures was launched by developers who are dedicated to providing the best trading experience with the highest industry standards. It provides the highest leverage among major crypto exchanges for BTC contracts at 125x and the convenience for traders to adjust leverage between 1 and125. Last week, Binance Futures launched ETH contracts with max 50x leverage, marking the start of its multi-asset exploration. Traders can have highly leveraged trading on the platform while enjoying the protection of a sophisticated risk engine, smart liquidation model and insurance funds.

Within its first two months of operations, Binance Futures reached an all-time high (ATH) daily trading volume of more than 370,000 BTC (approximately $2.7 billion USD at date). On average, over 60 percent of traders on Binance Futures trade at a leverage of 20x or higher. Users trading at 125x leverage account for 21 percent of total traders, on both desktop and mobile. The conversion rate of web users is over 35 percent, which is double of spot market traders. While high leverage trading is most popular among Binance Futures retail traders, most of its institutional traders--who contribute to 81 percent of the total trading volume--tend to trade at a leverage of 20x or less.
