FTMUSD Quanto Contract Specs

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

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

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