How do you make the most out of leveraged tokens? (with Bitcoin.com)
The Bitcoin.com Exchange just recently listed four new 3x leveraged tokens by AMUN. The listing was followed by a fee-free trading competition and a trading competition to support the trading volumes and increase the awareness of these tokens. Do you know what a leveraged token is for? Have you ever traded it? We have put together a Q&A to help you get started with these tokens.
How do leveraged tokens rebalance?
Our leveraged tokens maintain notional 3x or -3x exposure to the daily returns of cryptoassets like Bitcoin or Ether through the use of perpetual swap contracts. These contracts allow us to get leveraged exposure to cryptoassets such as Bitcoin and Ether and we adjust this exposure on a daily basis based on our position’s Profit and Loss (PnL). Let’s consider a case of how BTC3S maintains its -3x leveraged exposure through rebalancing.
How do leveraged tokens work?
Leveraged tokens are intended to maintain long 3x or -3x exposure to cryptoassets such as Bitcoin or Ether. This means that if Bitcoin increases by 3% in a single day then a long leveraged token like BTC3L will increase by 9% and conversely a short leveraged token like BTC3S will decrease by 9% on the same day.
What are leveraged tokens?
We're proud to announce the launch of our first four leveraged tokens — BTC3L, BTC3S, ETH3L, and ETH3S. Leveraged tokens are Ethereum-based ERC-20 tokens created by Amun to give token holders easy access to leveraged long and short daily returns of cryptoassets like Bitcoin and Ether.
