August 2023 in Review

Needless to say, August was a colourful month. One where we didn’t just see major market movements on 18 August, but also many employing volatility in their favour, via way of futures and perpetual contracts, best employed with leverage. 

Earlier this month, we launched futures for CYBER and SEI, prior to their spot listing  – a move made to allow our traders to benefit from early token price discovery – something we plan to do more of in the future. 

We also launched perpetual swaps for both tokens, with up to 33x leverage. You can find details about the CYBER and SEI perps, here and here.

Continuous product innovation aside, for all that happened in August… or is about to happen, read on.

If you’re headed to Singapore for TOKEN2049 next month, let us know and register to attend TOKEN2049 Eve. We love a good get-together, so we’re taking over a bar by the bay, the night before the official programme kicks off. 

You can also catch our CEO Stephan Lutz and Co-Founder Arthur Hayes on stage during the day.
