BinanceKR will list ETHUP and ETHDOWN, on 2020/09/10 at 5:00 PM KST ( 8:00 AM UTC), with ETHUP/USDT and ETHDOWN/USDT trading pairs.
Binance Leveraged Tokens (BLVT) are newly designed by Binance, after careful consideration of user requests and evaluation of existing leverage products. Binance Leveraged Tokens provide lower risks and fees compared to derivatives and other conventional leveraged tokens (not issued by Binance), providing users with better protection.
About Binance Leveraged Tokens (BLVT)
Binance Leveraged Tokens are tradable assets (off-chain tokens) in the BinanceKR market that give users leveraged exposure to the underlying asset. Each leveraged token represents a basket of perpetual contract positions. The price of the tokens tracks the change in notional amount of the perpetual contract positions in the basket and changes in the multiples of leverage level.
- ETHUP - allows you to generate leveraged gains when Ethereum increases in price.
- ETHDOWN - allows you to generate leveraged gains when Ethereum decreases in price.
The new Binance Leveraged Tokens (BLVT) have the following characteristics:
- Leverage: Binance Leveraged Tokens do not maintain constant leverage. Instead, Binance Leveraged Tokens maintain a constant target leveraged range between 1.5x and 3x. Since Binance Leveraged Tokens are not forced to maintain a set degree of leverage, Binance Leveraged Tokens rebalance on an as-needed basis, such as during extreme market movements.
- Intelligent rebalancing mechanism: Positions of the Binance Leveraged Tokens will only be rebalanced when needed, which can increase profit when the market is favorable and reduce losses when the market is unfavorable, to avoid liquidation.
- Low fees: The fees associated with Binance Leveraged Tokens are trading fees, redemptions fees, management fees and funding fees. The daily management fee of Binance Leveraged Tokens is as low as 0.01%, which reduces the user's holding cost.
Please ensure you have fully read the BinanceKR Leveraged Tokens Risk Disclosure Statement prior to trading or participating in any Binance Leveraged Tokens products, and fully understand the risks associated with leveraged tokens. As a trader, you acknowledge and agree that you shall access and use Binance Leveraged Tokens at your own risk.
