$2.3 Billion in 24hr Trade Volume, Eclipsing Bitmex
The exchange went on to release a full report explaining that the platform’s BTC perpetual contract was averaging $2.343 Billion in 24-hour trade volume compared to Bitmex’s $2.121 Billion in a similar time frame. At one point, Binance successfully handled $9 Billion worth of Bitcoin contracts in a day.
Rapid Growth of the Binance Futures Platform
Launched in September 2019, the Binance futures platform currently has 24 USDT contracts covering major digital assets such as BTC, Ethereum, XRP, Litecoin, Dash, Link and more. Such a variety has allowed the exchange to host half of all the top 10 most liquid altcoin contracts. (Also to note, is that in September 2019, the exchange acquired JEX: a crypto derivatives trading platform.) Mr. Gong is quoted as explaining that the trustworthiness of Binance is the reason for its accelerated growth.
Since our inception, it has been an exciting time for traders as crypto markets displayed stronger demand and volatility. Therefore, choosing a reliable and trustworthy exchange for risk-hedging has never been more critical than before. Hopefully, Binance Futures emerge as the market-standard choice for traders as we continue to expand our ecosystem throughout 2020.
Additionally, Binance has one of the lowest trading fee structure available in the crypto-verse as well as a considerably stable and quick matching engine.
