Now Live: Bitcoin-Margined BOB Listing

BOB has arrived at BitMEX via a new listing – BOBUSD, with up to 50x leverage, making this new perpetual contract one of the highest max position sizes in the industry. 

What is BOB? 

The BOB Token is an AI meme token behind the “Bob Is Here To Explain” Twitter account, an AI bot designed to reply to anyone who tags @ExplainThisBob under a specific tweet.

The project’s answer to “What is BOB?” is

Everyone loves Bob. Elon loves Bob. Even Bob loves Bob. He simply knows it all. When in doubt, ask Bob. He is here for you. In his humble demeanour, he will blow you away.

Why even go see your doctor if you have Bob, your wife or husband are giving you trouble, see Bob. You have constipation, see Bob. You don’t know where you are going in life, see Bob. I mean let’s be real here. Who doesn’t like Bob. His giga brain is too sizeable for the average Joe.”

The project proclaims:

$BOB will take over the meme space by surprise. Was stealth launched and locked for about 690 months (about 57 years) with a renounced contract. Bob’s knowledge will blow away even the most prominent scholars.”

BOBUSD began trading on 25 May 2023 at 04:00 UTC.

BOBUSD Quanto Contract Specs

As with all quanto contracts, the BOBUSD product has a fixed Bitcoin multiplier, regardless of the BOB/USD price. This allows traders to long or short the BOB/USD exchange rate without ever touching BOB or USD.

Traders can post margin in XBT, and earn or lose in XBT as the BOB/USD rate changes. 

This quanto risk premium may be one of the factors that results in the BOBUSD swap trading at a premium/discount to the BOBUSD spot price.
