The OKEx Perpetual Swap is a derivatives product of Futures Trading. While similar to Fixed-Date Futures Contracts, Perpetual Swap is different because it doesn’t have a delivery date, doesn’t expire, and there is a funding mechanism used so that the Perpetual Swap Price is anchored to the spot market. A no-contract expiry saves the trader time from rolling over contracts regularly. Fund flexibility allows profits and losses to be realized and settled twice a day, which in turn frees the trader into allocating funds into other uses. Finally, the provision of up to 100x leverage allows for multiplied gain potentially but of course, higher risks are involved.

As a timeless contract, OKEx took into account maintaining market fairness and minimizing the risk of societal lost by implementing the following features in perpetual swaps: minimalization of its impact to short-term volatility, elimination of risks of cascade liquidation and clawback, and maintenance of reasonable price divergence between Spot and Perpetual Swap markets.

Users who wish to trade Perpetual swap must first transfer their digital assets to “Swap Account” and then go to Futures > Swap on the OKEx main page.
