TONUSD Contract Specs

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

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

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