Asset Transfer Guide in Derivatives Trading

Derivatives accounts include USDT-margined contract account, coin-margined swaps account and coin-margined futures account.

If you want to trade USDT-margined contracts, you shall transfer USDT to USDT-margined contract account. And USDT-margined contract accounts are divided into Cross margin account and Isolated margin account. There is only one cross margin account, in which USDT-margined futures and USDT-margined swaps share a mutual margin in the account. While under the isolated margin mode, there has an isolated margin account for each pair. Take isolated-margined BTC/USDT account as an example, the margin in this account can only be used for BTC/USDT swaps. At present, the margin for USDT-margined contracts can only be USDT, which is available to transfer from Exchange Account. Meanwhile, the transfer between each isolated margin account and the cross margin account is available.

If you want to trade coin-margined swaps, you shall transfer assets to coin-margined swaps account. Users shall transfer the corresponding margin for each swap in this account. Assume you wish to trade BTC/USD swaps, you shall transfer BTC from Exchange Account to Coin-margined Swaps Account. The transfer from other accounts is not available currently.

If you want to trade coin-margined futures, you shall transfer assets to coin-margined futures account. Users shall transfer the corresponding margin for each pair in this account. Assuming you wish to trade any one type of ETH/USD futures, you shall transfer ETH from Exchange Account to Coin-margined Futures Account. The transfer from other accounts is not available currently.
