Key differences between our Pre-Launch listings and other futures contracts:

Mark Method: Last Price
Price Limits: Limit Up and Limit Down set hourly at Mark Price +/- 20%
Settlement Price: .BIOT30M
Auto Deleveraging: Enabled

Pre-Launch futures are highly volatile and speculative contracts. Because of this, we’ve changed a few items:

We are using Last Price marking because there is not yet an observable price for IO.
To protect the market against manipulation, we will use Limit Up and Limit Down prices, which are set each hour, on the hour, at Mark Price +/- 20%. Traders will not be able to place bids above the Limit Up Price or place offers below the Limit Down Price.
The .BIOT index will be constructed by BitMEX when it is possible for our team to produce a robust index that represents the spot price of the each token. Once such an index exists, we may use our discretion to change the Mark Method to Fair Price. Until such an Index is created, the value of .BIOT is set to 0. If there is no index constructed by the expiry date, the Settlement Value will be 0.
As with all crypto derivatives contracts traded on BitMEX, there is a possibility that auto-deleveraging will occur. Since this contract is purely speculative, the possibility of auto-deleveraging is higher than on a regular contract.
