There are two kinds of cryptocurrency perpetual, namely token-based perpetual and USDT perpetual. Token-based perpetual use tokens (BTC, ETH, etc.) as the unit for margin, profit, and loss calculations. Due to the volatility of token prices, the token-based perpetual has a high holding risk. Where USDT perpetual, also known as stable coin contracts, are calculated by quotes (such as USDT). Compared with the token-based perpetual, USDT perpetual is more intuitive, and the profit and loss curve is linear. Thus, we advise the entry-level investor to trade USDT perpetual, but not token-based perpetual.
Bybit is the second large solo derivative (which means the exchange with only derivatives available) by volume. The USDT perpetual is a new trading pair listed on Bybit since early 2020.
To help investors participate in USDT perpetual, Bybit added a USDT deposit function. As we all know, USDT is issued on three public chains (Ethereum, OMNI, and Tron). To prevent investors from carelessly and accidentally losing assets due to the wrong type of deposit, Bybit obfuscates the USDT recharge address except for the ERC-20 standard; such a way is rare.
User Interface (UI)
The Bybit trading interface can be easily customized by dragging and dropping to meet the needs of different users. Bybit provides 124 optional chart indicators. Users can combine various indicators with customized trading interfaces according to their trading system. The new pre-calculation module enables traders to know the expecting profit or potential loss before they open a position. Bybit also launched an instant position reversing button. At the same time, Bybit USDT perpetual allows a two-way position opening function.
All functions of the Bybit website UI are available on mobile App and run smoothly. In particular, the Bybit mobile App uses vibration mode for feedback when the user performs critical operations ( opening, and closing positions, etc.).
