BTC-Margined Futures contracts’ characteristics
- Settlement in BTC: Contracts are denominated and settled in BTC.
- Expiration: Perpetual.
- Contract unit: Each BTC-Margined Futures contract specifies the base asset's quantity delivered for a single contract, similar to the spot market. For example, BNBBTC, ETHBTC, and BCHBTC Futures contracts represent only one unit of their base assets.
- Funding fee: BTC-Margined Perpetual contracts carry a funding fee. Funding payments are transferred between traders and are charged every eight hours.
- Symbols: BTC-Margined contracts symbols represent both the base and the quote assets. The base asset is the cryptocurrency you are trading, while the quote asset is the currency you use as a reference for pricing.
- For example, the trading pair "ETHBTC" represents a BTC-Margined (BTC-M) Futures contract for Ethereum (ETH), where:
- Base asset: ETH (Ethereum)
- Quote asset: BTC (Bitcoin)
- Symbol: ETHBTC
- Minimum order notional limit rule: The minimum notional value of each order must be higher than the threshold of 0.001 BTC. The order will be rejected if the order notional value is lower than the threshold.
