The product provides extremely low face value (0.001 BTC for a BTC options trading and 0.01 ETH for a ETH trading), therefore options buyers could earn unlimited profits with a very low cost.

The deposit to become a VIP campaign has also lower the threshold for users who would like to enjoy the VIP fee rate at Huobi Futures. As long as you convert over USD30,000 worth of asset in your Huobi account. The client is eligible to apply for a VIP at Huobi and enjoy a maker fee rebate.

Huobi Futures has designed its risk management mechanism highly friendly to its users. It has built a very competitive moat in terms of liquidity and depth, system performance, and product technology. And these are the core features that made Huobi Futures competitive and enabled Huobi to become the world’s best in trading volumes of coin-margined trading and coin-margined swaps.
