Wisebitcoin 2021-04-27

Q:How to calculate Gains & Losses?

A: Please refer to the chart below. In a situation where intra-day position adjustment occurs, the changes may not equate to 3 times the value of the underlying asset.



Q: What is the underlying digital asset used on the Leveraged ETF product?



Q: What currency can I use to trade Leveraged ETF?

A: It depends on the specific trading pair. The current Leveraged ETF listed on Wisebitcoin was BTC3L/USDT and BTC3S/USDT, therefore USDT will be the based currency used in trading BTC3L and BTC3S.


Q: Is there a unique symbol for ETF Leveraged products?

A: BTC 3x Leverage Long, in short BTC3L. BTC 3x Short, in short BTC3S.


Q:Will liquidation occur for leveraged ETF products? Is margin needed for leveraged ETF products?

A:There is no liquidation as the trading position will be adjusted daily at fixed time intervals or when the leverage is greater than the threshold limits of 4x. 


Q:Why do leveraged ETF products not have liquidation?

A:The net value of the underlying asset will change during daily adjustments or the intra-day position adjustment. As such, there will be no liquidation except a fall in asset value due to high volatility market conditions.


Q: What fees are traders charged for leveraged ETF tokens?
A: Traders are charged a trading fee and a position management fee.

Trading fee: Taker 0.2%, Maker: 0.2%
Traders with VIP status will get to enjoy the VIP preferential rates.

A 0.1% position management fee will be charged every 24 hours. This fee will be deducted directly from the net value of the ETF position at 00:00:00 (UTC).


Q: What will happen when the price of a particular ETF drops close to zero? Would there be a forced liquidation or a shares merger?

A: The price of ETF products is based on the price of the underlying asset. When the price of the underlying asset rises/falls, the price of the ETF will follow suit but it will magnify by 3 times. We do not recommend traders to hold an ETF position for an extended period of time due to the volatility of the market and that may cause the price to drop close to zero.

In response to the possibility of the risk of ETF’s net value dropping to zero, we have designed a Shares Merger and Rebalance mechanism for our ETFs. The Shares Merger and Rebalance mechanism will be activated when the net value and price of the ETF position are lower than 5% of the original net value. All ETF positions held by traders at the time of shares merger will be changed to 1/N of the original share. The net value of the position will be revised to N times the original net value price. Currently, the shares merger parameter N is tentatively set at 20. Wisebitcoin will announce the specific shares parameter in its announcement.



Leveraged Tokens are high-risk products. Only trade them if you understand how they work. They might gain or lose large amounts of their value in a day.
