Inverse Futures Margin Schedule & Maximum Leverage
At Kraken Futures we use Initial Margin (IM) and Maintenance Margin (MM) to manage the credit risk arising from open positions.
The larger a trader's position, the more liquidity is required to unwind that position in the event of an adverse price move.
Additionally, the more volatile a currency pair, the higher the margin that is required to withstand typical price moves. IM and MM are therefore a function of both, contract type and of position size, as shown in the following tables:

Note: Margin percentages are based on the value of the collateral currency at entry price. Margin requirements and maximum position size are calculated for each instrument individually per maturity. 
Example: You are long 1,000,000 contracts in the Perpetual Bitcoin-Dollar Futures and 250,000 contracts in the Monthly Bitcoin-Dollar Futures.
Your IM requirement for the position in the Perpetual will be 2% for the first 500,000 contracts and 4% for the second 500,000 contracts, resulting in an average IM of 3%.
Your IM requirement for the position in the Monthly will be 2%.
