Bibox, the world-leading AI-enhanced, encrypted digital asset exchange, announced the upcoming launch of perpetual contract trading for Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) in a statement published on their blog. Bibox will hold an online trading contest from February 18 to March 4, inviting users to experience the new product. Perpetual contracts will be priced in Tether (USDT). According to the statement, no transaction fees will be charged during the contest.
A perpetual contract is a derivative product that is similar to a traditional futures contract but has no expiry or settlement and mimics a margin-based spot market, which trades close to the underlying reference index price. Perpetual contracts enable traders to use greater leverage options.
Bibox Enhances Derivatives Ecosystem
Perpetual contracts are only the latest addition to Bibox’s derivates ecosystem. The company issued BIX-denominated bonds for both institutional and retail investors on November 22, 2018, which sold out within 24 hours.
According to Bibox Co-founder Aries Wang,
“not only is the roll-out of perpetual contracts a significant addition to Bibox’s derivatives offering, but also a promise that we will continue creating a transparent, secure and user-friendly trading environment for our users.”
Bibox perpetual contracts also provide more flexible leverage options, allowing users to buy or sell with a leverage of up to 50x. For instance, users that want to trade 100 BTC/USDT contracts (the face value of one contract is 0.01BTC), with leverage of 25x and given an index price of 3000USDT, the user will need a margin of 120USDT, while a margin of only 60USDT is needed with a 50x leverage. Flexible leverage provides users with the ability to speculate for greater potential returns in line with their risk preference.
One thing worth noting is that, unlike the existing contract trading platform, Bibox perpetual contract does not charge the funding rate from buyers or sellers.
Zero Transaction Fees to Celebrate the Perpetual Contract Trading Launch
Bibox has announced a range of incentives for traders that will participate in the launch. First, users will not be charged any transaction fees for the contract trading during the contest period. Second, Bibox sets 1,000 places for the contest, users who deposit more than 100USDT and trade accumulatively up to 25BTC or 740 ETH of the contract face value will be awarded as experience officers and eligible to receive an exclusive10-60USDT reward. Third, the top 30 perpetual contract traders by earnings will be rewarded, that is, 1BTC for the champion, 50USDT for each of the remaining 29 users.
Bibox is an AI-enhanced and encrypted top 10 digital asset exchange with a daily trading volume of around $300 million. The Estonia-registered company also has operation centers in the US, Switzerland, Canada, China, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, and Vietnam, with plans to expand to more countries. Bibox traders enjoy secure, stable, and user-friendly digital assets management services, with access to over 100 high-quality coins and over 200 trading pairs.

BitMax.io [BTMX.com] Announces Listing of Standard Tokenization Protocol [STPT]
BitMax.io [BTMX.com] has announced the listing of STPT, the native token of Standard Tokenization Protocol, a decentralized network for the tokenization of an asset.
Trading for the STPT/BTC and STPT/USDT pairs will be enabled on Tuesday, June 25th at 10:00 am EDT.
As part of the listing collaboration, the BitMax.io team will provide strategic support to the STP team throughout the platform launch.
Dr. George Cao, Co-Founder & CEO of BitMax.io, stated,
“STP is a necessary project for the overall space. Their focus on unlocking value and building an ecosystem of high-quality assets in this industry made our decision to list them very easy.”
With the listing of STPT, BitMax.io will strengthen its leading trading platform status by continuously adding solid projects, as well as provide more diversified global exposure to the Standard Tokenization Protocol.
About Standard Tokenization Protocol and STPT
Standard Tokenization Protocol’s STP-Standard is an open-source standard that defines how tokenized assets are generated, issued, sent, and received while complying with all necessary regulations. The protocol allows assets of all kinds to be tokenized in a way that makes them fully compliant across jurisdictions and transferable across any ERC20 platform.
Tokens built on top of the STP-Standard will use the protocol’s on-chain Compliance Validator to verify compliance with relevant regulations [i.e. KYC, AML, Accreditation, etc.] as well as any issuer-specific requirements [i.e. ownership concentration, holding periods, voting]. The Validator Committee will serve an advisory function to ensure the Compliance Validator is enforcing the most up-to-date legislation at all times.
About BitMax.io [BTMX.com]
BitMax.io is the industry’s next-generation digital asset trading platform that provides a broad range of financial products and services to both retail and institutional clients across the globe.
This innovative trading platform was founded by a group of Wall Street quant trading veterans and built upon the core values of blockchain, transparency, and reliability, to deliver high-quality client services and trading experience.
BitMax.io always strives to provide its global users with a comprehensive set of trading products. BitMax.io enabled margin trading on Feb. 14th, 2019. The margin trading function is another step forward from a product-offering perspective to better serve their dynamic trading needs.
For BitMax.io users who understand and acknowledge the risks involved in margin trading, they are now able to leverage their tradable asset for a potential higher return on investment through margin trading with sound risk management. The list of digital assets that can be traded on margin has increased from the initial four to 18 different tokens, even including BTMX.
It’s another pioneering move for BitMax.io to enable margin trading in its own native token. It expands the utility functions of BTMX, and incentivizes liquidity on the platform. [The margin trading function of BitMax.io is not available for North American markets.]
Similar to the innovative margin trading launched on BitMax.io, the introduction of this unique Volatility Card has again showcased the team’s deep understanding of the inner working of the capital market and their advanced expertise in financial product design.
BitMax.io Volatility Card is the first volatility-linked derivative product of this platform that allows global users to forecast and trade off price fluctuation of underlying major coins during preset time windows in a simple yet effective way. Named as Turtle and Bunny Card after Aesop’s fable – the Tortoise and the Hare, the card has a quasi-option structure for underlying trading pairs yet largely simplified payout form. Users can purchase a different card for the prediction of price movement either within a certain range [Turtle Card] or above a certain range [Bunny Card].
Those who predict the correct range of price movement will receive the payout equivalent to the notional value of the card. Volatility Card uses a simplified payout form without the complication of settlement and clearing issues common for real currency options. Users just simply select which card to purchase to trade on their view of the volatility of underlying asset either within or above a certain range.
It is easy to understand and use for all types of traders with the need for either very short-term momentum trading or partial risk hedging against outsized price swing in very volatile market conditions.
BitMax.io has experienced significant growth since its launch in 2018 and is deeply committed to providing a high-performance, client-centric trading platform to its global client base. Currently, the platform has over 180,000 registered users, with over 53,000 active community members. The listing of STPT not only broadens its trading pair scope but also helps to attract more volume and users to the platform.
