Why trade cryptocurrency futures?

  • Crypto futures are an agreement between two counterparties to buy and sell a specific amount of an underlying crypto at a specific future price on a specific date and time
  • They allow you to gain exposure to a wide range of cryptocurrencies without ever having to own them
  • Individuals and organizations that do own cryptocurrencies can use futures to hedge exposure against market movements

The Kraken Futures multi-collateral advantage

Gain exposure to a wide range of assets without owning them outright. With a variety of collateral options, you have superior flexibility when opening new positions or maintaining existing positions. And no matter what crypto you trade, you can choose to convert any profits into a currency of your choice.

Multi-Collateral Wallet

Introducing the Multi-Collateral Futures wallet

The multi-collateral wallet allows you to use a variety of collateral types to manage all of your positions, without needing to move funds around. For example, you can open a position on DOT/USD, use USDT as collateral and convert any profits to bitcoin.

Futures trading with leverage

Flexibility in risk management 

New margin mode functionality allows you to trade using isolated margin to limit your downside per contract, or use cross margin to utilize all of your collateral across all positions.
