Futures Collateral Currencies

Multi-Collateral Linear Futures

The Multi-Collateral wallet allows traders the flexibility to deposit a variety of collateral currencies to back their positions. Neither base nor the quote currency is needed as collateral to trade and all collaterals are valued in USD for margining under a single wallet with cross or isolated margin.
Haircuts and conversion fees apply to non-USD collateral currencies.
The following collateral currencies are supported:

Interest and auto-conversions can apply to unrealised losses uncovered by USD, depending on the value of the loss. See Fees for Multi-Collateral Futures for more information.

What is a haircut? When does it apply?

A haircut is a reduction in the value of a collateral asset that may be used as margin.
This applies to both non-USD funds in the margin wallet as well as non-USD unrealised Profit/Loss and funding (See Unrealized as Margin).
Haircuts only apply to collateral for Multi-Collateral contracts.
This 16,800 USD equivalent is what can be used for collateral to back new orders and positions.

Single-Collateral Inverse Futures

Single-Collateral Inverse contracts* only allow the base currency of the pair to be used as collateral.
Each collateral currency has a separate wallet and each wallet's collateral supports trading of both perpetual and fixed maturity contracts.
e.g. if trading a BTC/USD contract, the only collateral allowed would be BTC.
