As with all quanto contracts, the SUSHI product will have a fixed Bitcoin multiplier regardless of the Tether/SUSHI price. This allows traders to long or short the SUSHI/USDT exchange rate without ever touching either SUSHI or USDT.
Traders post margin in XBT, and earn or lose XBT as the SUSHI/USDT rate changes. This quanto risk premium may be one of the factors which results in the SUSHIUSDT swap trading at a premium / discount to the SUSHIUSDT spot price – see our blog post explaining the same concept for ETHUSD.
