February 18th, 2019 at 10:53 pm UTC · 2 min read

Singapore-based global derivatives exchange Bybit has announced the official release of its new 100x leverage Ethereum perpetual contract. Two months after its official launch, the company added a second pair to their already popular BTC/USD perpetual contract, a move that is sure to boost the already-growing user base and trading volume the exchange has seen surging in the last two months.

The new 100x leverage  ETHUSD perpetual contract works in the same way the previous perpetual contract did with a speed matching engine processing 100,000TPS for the contract, a fully accessible ETH wallet for withdrawals and deposits, a dual price mechanism, funding, and professional risk control.

Perpetual contracts are a new type of futures contract with no expiry date, and are a part of the derivatives family. Derivatives can profit from both a surge or a drop in price depending on the position opened and can use leverage to multiply the profits earned from a trade.

It has also intensified its effort in the Bybit Academy, a  separate brand dedicated to providing the best crypto day-trading education for beginners, and has stated it will release articles, videos, comics, and analysis covering everything needed to know to enter the crypto derivatives market with knowledge and confidence.
