Crypto Futures Explained


What are Futures Contracts?

Futures contracts are an important part of traditional finance: They are highly complex financial instruments used by advanced or technical investors. Investors, companies, and governments use derivatives such as futures contracts to safeguard their exposure to risk and asset price volatility.

A derivative is a type of financial contract that derives its value from an underlying asset. Traditionally, derivatives are used in markets such as commodities, currencies, stocks, or bonds. These contracts can be traded over-the-counter or through exchanges.


What are Cryptocurrency Futures?

In the crypto industry, the futures market is a rapidly growing sector that generates trillions in trading volume every month. Like stock options or commodity futures contracts, crypto futures can guard against volatility and adverse price changes. Crypto futures also act as a tool that investors can use to speculate on future crypto prices or hedge against changes in the price of a cryptocurrency.


Advantages of trading Crypto Futures

Flexibility: Non-crypto holders can speculate on the price of a cryptocurrency to make a profit. You can use USDT to open a crypto futures position, and you can choose to settle your profit in USDT.

Leverage: Gain significant exposure to a specific cryptocurrency with only a fraction of its total cost. With leverage, you can magnify small price movements to create profits that justify your time and effort.

Liquidity: Crypto Futures markets are extremely liquid, with transaction volumes reaching trillions in US dollars. Liquid markets are less risky because traders can enter and exit positions easily with minimal slippage.

Portfolio Diversification: Diversify your trading strategies to generate more profit. Traders are able to develop complex trading strategies, such as short selling, arbitrage, pair trading, and so on.

ApolloX Futures Transaction Fees


Futures transaction fees:

Maker fee: 0.02%; Taker fee: 0.07%


Definitions of "Maker" and "Taker"

What is a Maker Order?

When you place a Maker order, youll enter the order price (either higher or lower than the current market price) and rather than being filled immediately, your order will go onto the order book with the other orders. Your order will stay on the order book until another user takes the initiative to fill the order.


What is a Taker Order?

When you place a Taker order, youre taking the initiative to fill your order by trading with an existing order on the order book. Your order trades immediately by filling an existing order with a matching price.


How are transaction fees calculated?

Formula for USDⓈ-M Futures transaction fees:

Transaction fee = Nominal value × Transaction fee rate

Nominal value = Number of futures contracts × Transaction price


For ApolloX users, Maker fees are 0.02% and Taker fees are 0.07%.

Buying BTCUSDT Futures using a Market Order:

Nominal value

= Number of futures contracts × Transaction price

= 1 BTC × 49,000

= 49,000

As a Taker, you would pay a transaction fee of 49,000 × 0.07% = 34.3 USDT.


Once the price goes up, you can place a Maker sell order:

Nominal value

= Number of futures contracts × Transaction price

= 1 BTC x 49,500

= 49,500

As a Maker, you would pay a transaction fee of 49,500 × 0.02% = 9.9 USDT.

USDⓈ-M Perpetual Futures

Initial Margin = Quantity * Entry Price * Initial Margin Rate(IMR)

Initial Margin Rate (IMR) = 1 / leverage Multiplier

Calculation for PnL:

Long = (Exit Price - Entry Price) * Number of Contracts

Short = (Entry Price - Exit Price) * Number of Contracts

ROE% = PnL / Initial Margin = Order Direction * (1 - Entry Price / Exit Price) / Initial Margin Rate

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Withdrawal Fees

"Withdrawal fees" or "network fees" are usually incurred when you withdraw coins to an external wallet address. These fees are used to pay the miners or node validators responsible for processing the transaction and securing the corresponding blockchain network.

ApolloX pays these fees to the miners to ensure that all transactions are properly processed on the blockchain. However, since transaction fees are dynamic, ApolloX charges users a fee based on the current network conditions. Please note that since the fee amount is based on estimated network transaction fees, it may be adjusted without notice in response to the current network conditions.

You can view the current fees for a given network by going to the withdrawal request page for that coin.


Minimum Withdrawal Amount

There is a minimum withdrawal limit every time you withdraw crypto, so please make sure the amount of your withdrawal is greater than the minimum.

You can go to the Deposit Withdrawal Fees page to check the minimum withdrawal limits and transaction fees for each type of cryptocurrency. However, please note that the fees displayed on this page may fluctuate without prior notice based on blockchain network conditions.

You can see the current transaction fees and minimum withdrawal limits on the Deposit Withdrawal Fees page, as shown below.
How to Trade Crypto and Withdraw from ApolloX
Note: Please avoid choosing unsupported networks because they have low fees. You must select a network that is compatible with the external address you are withdrawing to. If your external wallet/exchange account provides you with an ERC20 address, you have to select the ERC20 network to withdraw your crypto. If you choose the wrong network, your funds will be lost.


Why Hasnt My Withdrawal Arrived?

1. I made a withdrawal from ApolloX to another exchange/wallet, but I havent received my funds yet. Why?

Transferring crypto out of your ApolloX account involves 3 steps: Submit a withdrawal request on ApolloX - Confirmation on the blockchain - Funds arrive in the other account.

ApolloX typically generates the TxID for your transfer within 30-60 minutes. This signals that we have finished processing your transfer, and your transaction has been broadcast to the blockchain.

The time it takes for a transaction to be confirmed and sent to the other partys receiving platform as well as the number of "network confirmations" required to complete a transaction vary between different blockchains. For example:
  • A BTC deposit requires 1 network confirmation.
  • After receiving a deposit, the funds in your account will be temporarily frozen. You can withdraw after receiving 2 network confirmations.

Transfers may be delayed due to unpredictable network congestion. You can use the TxID (transaction ID) to check the status of your transfer using a blockchain explorer.

Tips:
  • If the blockchain shows that the transaction is unconfirmed, please wait for the confirmation process to be completed.
  • If you still havent received your deposit once the transaction shows as confirmed on the blockchain, it means that the transfer has been completed on ApolloX and we are no longer able to assist you with that transaction. Please contact the receiving platform for assistance with crediting the transfer to your account.
  • If the TxID has not been generated 6 hours after you click the link in the confirmation email, please contact our Customer Support team for assistance. Please be sure to attach a screenshot of your withdrawal history showing the relevant transaction. Providing detailed information will allow our Customer Service to assist you in a timely manner.

2. How do I check the status of my transaction on the blockchain?

Log in to ApolloX and click [Wallet] - [Transaction History] to view your withdrawal history. You can click on the link in the [TxID] section to see detailed information about your transaction.
