Guide on How to Trade Perpetual Futures on Deri Protocol
Step1: Click ‘Futures’ at the upper menu of Deri’s official website to enter the Futures section.
Step2: To select the trading symbol of your choice, click on the small arrow pointing upwards. This will open the market window. Trading symbols that remain long term as demand is quite high (e.g BTC/USD、ETH/USD.etc) are in the “Main” section.
The Inno Zone marks trading symbols that will be evaluated and added by team in regard to their innovation or the brisk request by the Deri community.
This tutorial will be illustrated using the BTCUSD trading symbol as an example. Choose BTCUSD in Main zone.
Step3: Then click “Deposit” to transfer funds from Wallet to Deri Protocol to charge your DEX account with margin.
Step4: The account deposit window appears. Firstly, choose the base token you’d like to transfer to the Deri platform and use as margin , we’re taking BUSD (1) as an example. Secondly, enter in the amount of BUSD you’d like to transfer from your wallet ( or you can directly select the percentage (2) by your total BUSD amount in your wallet). Once you have decided on an amount, click” Deposit”.
Step5: Confirm your request on the wallet by clicking “Confirm” in order to have the funds transferred to Deri Protocol. Your deposit is successfully transferred once the hint “ Deposit success” occurs at the upper right corner. On the Account Panel info located at the top left corner, you can see your available, added Margin.
Step6: Now we’re ready to open a BTCUSD position! Move to the “Buy” section in the bottom corner, set the notional amount in BTC you’d like to buy (Or you can directly enter the notional amount in USD, it will be converted to BTCs equivalent). Instead of the manual input or the given percentage buttons, there is also a slider to adjust the amount.
Step7: Click “Buy/Long” (1). A transaction confirmation window appears which sums up all the transaction details. Once convinced, hit the “Buy/Long” button. Confirm your wallet request to open your position.
Step8: The hint “Transaction success” means you have successfully opened your transaction. Information of your open position(s), you have opened up, will be included in your “Positions” tab.
Step9: If you seek to close a specific position, you can click “Close” in the position tab ,which results in a complete close of your position. Once you hit the close button, you need once again to “Confirm” the closure request on your wallet. The hint “Close position success” means you have successfully closed your position.
Step10: You can view your detailed trading history in the “History” section. Referring to the picture below, the information of two transactions we did, i.e buying BTCUSD & selling BTCUSD are recorded in ‘’History“ section now.
