Now Live: Bitcoin- and Tether – Margined LDO Listings

BitMEX users can now long or short LDO via two new listings  – LDOUSD and LDOUSDT.

LDO is the native governance token of Lido DAO, a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) that provides staking infrastructure for multiple blockchain networks. Lido DAO is secured by decentralized governance, audited code, and smart contracts. 

Through the arrival of the LDO listings on BitMEX, users can enjoy up to 20x leverage and one of the highest max position sizes in the industry.

Trading for LDOUSD and LDOUSDT began here and here on 11 January at 04:00 UTC. 

For the lowdown on these listings, read on.

If you haven’t signed up for a BitMEX account yet, we’re currently offering 10,000 BMEX Tokens – you can register here.

LDOUSD Quanto Contract Specs

As with all quanto contracts, the LDOUSD product has a fixed Bitcoin multiplier, regardless of the LDO/USD price. This allows traders to long or short the LDO/USD exchange rate without ever touching LDO or USD.

Traders can post margin in XBT, and earn or lose in XBT as the LDO/USD rate changes.

This quanto risk premium may be one of the factors that results in the LDOUSD swap trading at a premium/discount to the LDOUSD spot price. 

For an explanation of the same concept, check out this blog post referencing ETHUSD.
