A perpetual contract is a product similar to a traditional futures contract in how it trades, but does not have an expiry date, so you can hold a position for as long as you like. Perpetual contracts trade like spot, tracking the underlying asset index price closely.
What is a Perpetual Contract?
The features of a perpetual contract are:
- Expiry Date: A perpetual contract does not have an expiry date
- Market Price: the last buy / sell price
- Underlying Asset of each contract is: 1/1000th of the corresponding digital currency
- PnL Base: All PnL can be settled in USD / BTC / USDT / TUSD / USDC
- Leverage: Allows you to enter a futures position that is worth much more than you are required to pay upfront. Leverage is the ratio of the initial margin to the order value of a contract
- Margin: Funds required in order to open and maintain a position. You can use both fiat and digital assets as your margin.
- The price of your digital asset margin is calculated based on an executable market price that is representative of your asset quality and market liquidity. This price may differ slightly from the prices you see on the spot market
- Liquidation: When the mark price reaches your liquidation price, the liquidation engine will take over your position
- Mark Price: Perpetual contracts use the mark price to determine your unrealized PnL and when to trigger the liquidation process
- Funding Fees: Periodic payments exchanged between the buyer and seller every 8 hours
Mark price is weighted from the index price; its main purposes are:
What is Mark Price?
- To calculate the unrealized PnL
- To determine if liquidation occurs
- To avoid market manipulation and unnecessary liquidation
What are the differences between Market Price, Index Price and Mark Price?
- Market Price: The last price at which the asset was traded
- Index Price: The weighted average of the asset price based on Bitfinex/Bitstamp/Bittrex/Coinbase Pro/Krac
- Mark Price: Mark price: The price is used to calculate the unrealized PnL and the liquidation price of the perpetual contract
BTSE offers up to 100x Leverage on its futures products.

What is Initial Margin?
- Initial Margin is the minimum amount of USD (or USD equivalent value) you must have in your margin wallets (Cross Wallet or Isolated Wallets) in order to open a position.
- For Perpetual Contracts, BTSE sets the Initial Margin requirement at 1% of the contract price (/Notional Value).
What is Maintenance Margin?
- Maintenance Margin is the minimum amount of USD (or USD Value) you must have in your margin wallets (Cross Wallet or Isolated Wallets) to keep a position open.
- For Perpetual Contracts, BTSE sets the Maintenance Margin requirement at 0.5% of the order price.
- When the Mark Price reaches the Liquidation Price, your margin will have fallen to the maintenance margin level, and your position will be liquidated.
When a large position gets liquidated, it may cause violent price fluctuations, and may also cause opposite side traders to be auto-deleveraged because the size of the liquidated position is larger than what the market liquidity can absorb.
To reduce market impact and number of users being affected by liquidation events, BTSE has implemented the Risk Limits mechanism, which requires large positions to provide more initial margin and maintenance margin. By doing so, when a large position is liquidated, the probability of going into auto-deleveraging is reduced, and thus minimizing off market liquidations.
- You will need to manually increase your risk limit only when you desire to hold more than 100K contracts.
- Increasing the risk limit will also increase your initial and maintenance margin requirement. This moves your liquidation price closing to your entry price (which means it will increase the risk of getting liquidated)
Risk Limit Levels
There are 10 levels of risk limits. The larger the position, the higher the required maintenance margin and initial margin percentages.
In the BTC perpetual contract market, every 100k contracts you hold increases the threshold for maintenance and initial margin requirements by 0.5%.
(For risk limits in other markets, please refer to the risk limit panel description in the trading page)
|Position Size + Order Size||Maintenance Margin||Initial Margin|
In the contrary, if you have closed the large position and would like to return to the normal maintenance margin and initial margin level, you have to manually adjust the risk limit level.
You have 90K BTC perpetual contracts, and would like to add another 20K contracts.
Since 90K + 20K = 110K, you already exceeded the 100K risk limit level. So when you place the 20K contract order, the system will prompt you to increase the risk limit level to 200K level before you can place the new order.
After you close the 110K position, you have to manually adjust the risk limit back to 100K level, then the thresholds for the maintenance margin and the initial margin will return to the corresponding percentage.
How to Adjusting Your Risk Limit

2. Click the Level you would like to use, and then click Confirm to complete the setting
