Recently, one of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges KuCoin announced the opening of its derivatives platform KuMex, which will support bitcoin contracts with a maximum leverage of x20.
A spot index obtained from 6 exchanges, 5 of which are western (Coinbase, Kraken, Gemini, Bitstamp, Bittrex) and one Japanese (Liquid) will be used to estimate the bitcoin price. An interesting feature of the platform is the fact that with a loss-making position, a trader will not lose an amount that is more than the margin for this trade. This was achieved by automatically reducing the leverage when the insurance fund ceases to cover losses. To master the platform’s functionality, it provides the test period of trading without a deposit.
