Dear Valued Users,

To provide you with a better trading experience, Huobi Futures plans to officially launch USDT-margined futures on the Web and API at 10:00 (UTC) on Dec 28, 2021. Using stablecoin (USDT) as the margin, USDT-margined futures support bi-directional trading and up to 100x leverage. Meanwhile, USDT-margined futures implement the locked margin optimization scheme, therefore, users who hold both long and short positions for the same contract could enjoy position margin reduction, so as to improve asset utilization.


The Pairs to be launched are BTC/USDT and ETH/USDT weekly, bi-weekly and quarterly futures. And Huobi Futures will launch more pairs in USDT-margined futures trading, please stay tuned!

Please Note: USDT-margined swaps support both cross margin and isolated margin mode at the same time. The margin for these two kinds of accounts is calculated separately. While USDT-margined futures only support cross margin mode. Under the cross margin mode, USDT-margined swaps share the same margin in the cross margin account with USDT-margined futures.
