A leveraged token is a financial derivative that enables you to gain exposure to a leveraged trading position in a digital asset without having to deal with margin trade, liquidation, collateral, funding rates. Due to its simplicity, they have got a lot of attention since their appearance.
A leveraged token maintains notional exposure to -2x or -3x of the daily returns of a crypto asset like Bitcoin or Ethereum. It is done through the use of Amun’s Jasper platform which facilitates margin positions in the crypto assets in question both for long and short positions through the use of perpetual swaps, while also rebalancing on a daily basis in order to maintain daily notional leveraged exposure.
The BTC3XLONG tokens maintain notional exposure to 3x of the daily returns of Bitcoin and the ETH3XSHORT tokens maintain notional exposure to -3x of the daily returns of Ether. This means that if Bitcoin were to rise by 3% on a single day then BTC3XLONG would aim to rise by 9% on the same day. The use of these tokens greatly improves the user experience of maintaining leverage to crypto assets.
To showcase how leveraged tokens work, here is a very simple example: what would happen to the prices of BTC3L and Bitcoin 3x Daily Short (BTC3S) tokens if Bitcoin’s price over 3 days is as follows: Day 0 — $100, Day 1 — $103, Day 2 — $106.09, in other words, two days of Bitcoin increasing by 3%. It is assumed that Bitcoin, BTC3L, and BTC3S all begin day 0 at a price of $100.
As the table shows, both BTC3XLONG and BTC3XSHORT track 3x and -3x of Bitcoin’s returns over a single day. Please note that these tokens do not track 3x or -3x of Bitcoin’s returns over multiple days.
Leveraged tokens can provide some peace of mind if a trader doesn’t want to worry about liquidation on positions. They are also much better during strong trending periods, due to the daily rebalancing and compounding effect, which would otherwise need to be done manually in order to achieve the same result. There are multiple aspects why traders should use leveraged tokens but the four main ones are highlighted below.
Amun’s leveraged tokens differ from similar types of tokens in the crypto space. The table below shows a comparison between Amun’s tokens and the other t leveraged token issuers: Binance and FTX.
