More Details

As with all quanto contracts, the AXS product will have a fixed Bitcoin multiplier regardless of the Tether/AXS price. This allows traders to long or short the AXS/USDT exchange rate without ever touching either AXS or USDT.

Traders post margin in XBT, and earn or lose XBT as the AXS/USDT rate changes. This quanto risk premium may be one of the factors which results in the AXSUSDT swap trading at a premium / discount to the AXSUSDT spot price – see our blog post explaining the same concept for ETHUSD.

Key contract details:

  • Symbol: AXSUSDT
  • Bitcoin Multiplier: 0.00001 XBT (1,000 Satoshis)
  • XBT Contract Value: AXSUSDT Price * Bitcoin Multiplier (1,000 Sat / 1 USDT)

  • Maker Fee: -0.025%
  • Taker Fee: 0.075%
  • Base Initial Margin: 5.00%
