What Are Perpetual Futures Contracts?

Perpetual futures, also known as perpetual swaps or perpetual contracts, are a type of derivative financial instrument commonly traded on cryptocurrency exchanges. Unlike traditional futures contracts, perpetual futures do not have an expiration date. This means that traders can hold their positions indefinitely, as long as they maintain the required margin and meet other exchange requirements.

Perpetual futures also mimic the price of the underlying asset, typically a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin or Ethereum, and they settle periodically to the spot price of the asset.

To stop the perpetual futures price from deviating too far from the spot price,  funding is used. Funding payments are made between long and short positions to help keep the perpetual futures price in line with the spot price.

Traders use perpetual futures for various purposes, including speculation, hedging, and arbitrage. It’s important to note that trading perpetual futures carries huge risks, including volatility and the potential for liquidation if margin requirements are not maintained.
