BTSE Important Update

Dear Valued BTSE Users,

Effective January 24, 2024, we will be adjusting the collateral ratio mechanisms within BTSE’s multi-asset collateral function. Notably, the collateral ratio (haircut) percentage, which is a risk management tool used to determine the borrowing value of your assets, will now be determined based on the collateral’s USDT value rather than the token amount.

Additionally, we’ve updated the list of tokens eligible for use as collateral.

Newly added: Aptos (APT), Arbitrum (ARB), BNB (BNB), Chiliz (CHZ), (dYdX) DYDX, Enjin Coin (ENJ), First Digital USD (FDUSD), The Graph (GRT), Lido DAO (LDO), Maker (MKR), NEAR Protocol (NEAR), Optimism (OP), The Sandbox (SAND), Shiba Inu (SHIB), Synthetix (SNX), and Sui (SUI).

Removed: TrueUSD (TUSD) (Note: Any remaining TUSD in your futures wallet will be automatically transferred to your spot wallet when this update is implemented.)

This update aims to optimize risk control, particularly when a large amount of altcoins are used as collateral, and to ensure a smoother and more efficient trading experience for all our users.

For more details on this change and how it may affect your trading decisions, please refer to the table below:
