Now Live: Bitcoin- and Tether – Margined FLOKI Listings

FLOKI, the self-nominated people’s cryptocurrency and the utility token of the Floki ecosystem, is now tradeable on BitMEX via two new listings –  FLOKIUSD and FLOKIUSDT. 

FLOKI is a cryptocurrency birthed by fans and members of the Shiba Inu (SHIB) community, one inspired by – and named for – Elon Musk’s Shiba Inu. 

Currently, there are four flagship utility projects underway:

  • An NFT gaming metaverse called Valhalla
  • A suite of decentralized finance products launched under the “FlokiFi” umbrella.
  • An NFT and merchandise marketplace called FlokiPlaces
  • A content and education platform called University of Floki

Both listings started trading on 10 May 2023 at 12:00 UTC.

FLOKIUSD Quanto Contract Specs

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

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

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