What is TURBO? 

The Turbo Token (TURBO) is a meme based cryptocurrency that was created with a futuristic toad mascot, through an experiment in which an artificial intelligence system, GPT-4, was challenged to create the next great meme coin with a budget of $69. 

The project’s founder pledged to follow all instructions provided by the AI and document the process. Turbo Token features a futuristic toad mascot and has gained momentum from the enthusiasm of its community. The project serves as an example of the potential for AI-guided creativity in shaping the world of cryptocurrency.

TURBOUSD began trading on 26 May 2023 at 04:00 UTC. For more, read on.

TURBOUSD Quanto Contract Specs

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

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

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