More Details

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

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

Key contract details:

  • Symbol: FILUSDT
  • Bitcoin Multiplier: 0.000001 XBT (100 Satoshis)
  • XBT Contract Value: FILUSDT Price * Bitcoin Multiplier (100 Sat / 1 USDT)
  • Underlying: .BFILT
  • Max Leverage: 33x
  • Maker Fee: -0.025%
  • Taker Fee: 0.075%
  • Base Initial Margin: 3.00% 
  • Base Maintenance Margin: 1.50% 

The FILUSDT 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 8 June 2021 as Unlisted, 24 hours before trading starts at 04:00 UTC on 9 June 2021.
