More Details

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

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