Bitfinex Derivatives has announced the launch of perpetual contracts for EOS/USDT, LTC/USDT and DOT/USDT.
All three contracts went live at 9:00am UTC on October 12, with each contract offering users up to 100x leverage.
“We’re delighted to announce the addition of EOS, Litecoin and Polkadot to the growing portfolio of perpetual swaps available to trade on the exchange,” said Paolo Ardoino, CTO at Bitfinex Derivatives. “We anticipate great interest in these products among funds and professional investors for hedging purposes and to manage risk.”
The decision to list new derivatives products comes one week after BitMEX suffered a regulatory and legal crackdown, with the firm’s CEO and CTO subsequently standing down from their respective roles.
Our perps are available only to verified customers, since the beginning. No US is allowed to trade.
