Trading Ether

Why Should You Trade Ether Futures & Perpetual

You can directly buy or sell Ether. This is called spot trading of Ether. If you buy low and sell high, you will make profit. However, this trade only works when Ether price goes up. Further, leverage trading is not possible in spot trading.

Ether margin trading through derivatives addresses these shortcomings. The ETH futures and perpetual contracts enable you to go benefit from both up and down move in Ether. Further, these derivative contracts have built-in leverage, enabling you to trade big with small capital.
