What Are the Benefits of Trading USDⓈ-Margined Futures in Multi-Assets Mode

2022-07-06 06:56
Under the Multi-Assets Mode, you can trade USDⓈ-Margined Futures contracts with a wide variety of margin assets besides BUSD and USDT. For example, you can use BTC, ETH, BNB, etc. as margin assets to maximize your capital efficiency and enjoy the following benefits.

1. Portfolio diversification and capital efficiency

Access to a wider range of collaterals

When you trade USDⓈ-Margined Futures contracts under the Single-Asset Mode, you need to allocate significant portions of your portfolio into a specific stablecoin (USDT or BUSD) to open positions.
Under the Multi-Assets Mode, your margin are shared across USDT-margined and BUSD-margined contracts and other eligible coins can be used as collateral in the USDⓈ-M Futures Wallet. This allows for asset diversification, more flexibility, and better capital efficiency.
The Multi-Assets Mode supports BTC, ETH, BNB, XRP, ADA, DOT, SOL, BUSD, USDC and USDT as USDⓈ-margined futures collateral. Please refer to the Asset Table for more details on the supported collaterals, such as the maximum transfer-in and collateral value ratio.

Flexibly collateralize your USDⓈ-M Futures positions using both stablecoins

In the Single-Assets Mode, you must supply collateral in either USDT or BUSD. This requires you to split your collateral value across respective stablecoins, or reallocate your profits made on the BUSD-Margined Futures positions to collateralize your USDT-Margined Futures positions (and vice versa).
Trading with the Multi-Assets Mode removes this constraint, as both stablecoins held in the USDⓈ-M Futures Wallet are jointly accounted for in the margin calculation. Furthermore, profits arising from any BUSD or USDT margined futures positions will be automatically hedged against losing positions, providing more flexibility to maintain the margin requirements.

Arbitrage between the BUSD and USDT markets

Additionally, the shared margin feature allows you to arbitrage between the BUSD and USDT markets without the need to maintain multiple accounts or margin. You can deposit margin in USDT or BUSD and use the same margin asset to open positions in both markets, making it an ideal product for long-term traders, hedgers, and arbitrageurs.

2. Higher capital utilization and lower trading fees

BUSD holders can leverage their assets to trade USDT-M Futures contracts

BUSD is a regulated, fiat-backed stablecoin pegged to the U.S. dollar. For every unit of BUSD, there is one U.S. dollar held in reserve. This means that the supply of BUSD is pegged to the U.S. dollar at a 1:1 ratio. BUSD offers faster ways to fund your trades and is accepted as a medium of exchange, store of value, and payment method across the global crypto ecosystem.
Under the Multi-Assets Mode, you can trade all USDT-M Futures contracts using BUSD as collateral (and vice versa), allowing BUSD holders to leverage their assets while getting exposure to USDT-M Futures contracts.

Save on fees using BUSD and BNB

On top of saving on trading fees in the Spot and Margin markets, BUSD holders can also save on fees trading BUSD-M Futures contracts. USDT holders can also benefit from fee reduction by trading BUSD-M contracts under the Multi-Assets Mode.
What’s more, the BNB balance in the USDⓈ-M Futures Wallet can be used for trading fee discounts (25% discount on Spot and 10% discount on Futures).
You can refer to the trading fee table for an overview of the trading fees discount associated with BUSD and BNB.
