More Details

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

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

Key contract details:

  • Symbol: VETUSDT
  • Bitcoin Multiplier: 0.001 XBT (100,000 Satoshis)
  • XBT Contract Value: VETUSDT Price * Bitcoin Multiplier (100,000 Sat / 1 USDT)
  • Underlying: .BVETT
  • Max Leverage: 20x
  • Maker Fee: -0.025%
  • Taker Fee: 0.075%
  • Base Initial Margin: 5.00% 
  • Base Maintenance Margin: 2.50% 

The VETUSDT perpetual contract is now available on Testnet, along with the full specs.

The contract will be visible on the platform from 04:00 UTC on 29 June 2021 as Unlisted, 24 hours before trading starts at 04:00 UTC on 30 June 2021.
