比特币/美元掉期资金费率计算变更

由于几所交易所对于充值和提款法定货币出现问题,现在没有任何隔夜的美元和比特币借贷利率作参考。

BitMEX 比特币 / 美元 掉期(XBTUSD)现在的资金费率计算是参考 Bitfinex 隔夜美元和比特币借贷利率。但从北京时间 2017 年 4 月 21 日晚上 8 点开始, 利率部分将固定在每天 + 0.03%。

关于这个数字,我们是计算了到 2017 年 3 月 31 日为止过去十二个月的 Bitfinex 每日美元和比特币借贷利率的平均差而得出 + 0.03% 的。

如果掉期价格于一个资金费率计算周期里不是在溢价或折价交易的话, 在这个情况每 8 个小时,多军将会付空军 0.01%。这相等于每天利率 + 0.03%。

当充值和提款法定货币和比特币再次正常运作的时候,我们会选取一个适合的交易所去参考隔夜美元和比特币利率。

Bitcoin / USD Swap Funding Rate Calculation Changes

Due to the ongoing issues at various Bitcoin exchanges with regards to depositing and withdrawing fiat currencies, there has become no credible source for overnight USD and Bitcoin lending rates.

The BitMEX Bitcoin / USD Swap, XBTUSD, currently uses the Bitfinex overnight USD and Bitcoin lending rate in the funding rate calculation. Effective 21 April 2017 12:00 UTC, the interest rate component of the funding rate calculation will be fixed at a positive 0.03% per day.

To arrive at this number, we calculated the average difference between the Bitfinex daily USD and Bitcoin lending rates for a 12 month period ending 31 March 2017 to arrive at the positive 0.03% rate.

If the swap price does not trade at a premium or discount during a funding calculation period (currently 8 hours in length), longs will pay shorts 0.01%. This equates to a daily rate of positive 0.03%.

When the deposits and withdrawals of fiat and Bitcoin are operating normally, we will select an appropriate exchange from which to source overnight USD and Bitcoin rates.

A Statement on the Possible Bitcoin Unlimited Hard Fork

As proposed in the multi-exchange hard-fork contingency plan, there is significant doubt that a Bitcoin Unlimited (BU) hard fork could be done safely without additional development work.

In the case of a fork, we support the plan as proposed by Bitfinex, Bitstamp, BTCC et al.

It will not be possible for any exchange, including BitMEX, to support both chains separately. For these reasons, BU will not be listed or used as a deposit/withdrawal currency until replay protection is implemented and BU is not at risk of a blockchain reorganization if the Core chain becomes longer.

If the BU fork does succeed, we intend to take every possible step to ensure the safety and integrity of customer deposits on both chains. As BitMEX does not offer margin lending, there is no concern about Bitcoin in active positions at the time of the fork.

Notice Regarding Bitcoin/USD Products (Index, Tick Size)

Bitcoin / USD 30 June 2017 Futures Contract

The BitMEX Bitcoin / USD 30 June 2017 Futures Contract (XBTM17) listed today, 17 March 2017 at 12:00 UTC. This contract is similar to XBTH17, but uses a new index, described below.

.BXBT: The New BitMEX Bitcoin / USD Index

.BXBT is an equally weighted index using the Bitcoin / USD spot price from the following exchanges:

  • Bitfinex
  • Bitstamp
  • GDAX
  • OKCoin International

XBTM17 uses the .BXBT index. Any exchange that is down or displays stale pricing data for 15 minutes or more will be removed temporarily from the index. Once the price feed is operational at least 5 minutes, we will reinstate the exchange.

A page detailing each constituents’ individual price and history will be live soon.

The BitMEX Bitcoin / USD 31 March 2017 Futures Contract, XBTH17, will continue to use the existing Bitcoin / USD Index (Symbol: .XBT; Weights: 50% Bitstamp, 50% OKCoin International) until it expires.

The BitMEX Bitcoin / USD Swap, XBTUSD, will continue to use the existing Bitcoin / USD Index (.XBT) until 31 March 2017 12:00 UTC. It will then switch to the new index. This is the same moment that XBTH17 expires.

Increase to Bitcoin / USD Products’ Tick Size

Also effective 31 March 2017 12:00 UTC, the tick size for Bitcoin/USD products (XBTUSD, XBTM17) will change from 0.01 USD to 0.1 USD.
