We are delighted to add the HONG KONG 50, JAPAN 225, and AUSTRALIA 200 perpetual swaps to our portfolio of derivatives products.

Remember that Bitfinex Derivatives and the range of its services are not available to U.S. clients. Even in the allowed jurisdictions, its open only to verified users.
The perpetual contracts this platform announced today allow leverage of up to 100 times and work pretty much the same way as the rest of its perpetual trading portfolio – all transactions are settled in USDt or U.S. dollar denominated Tether tokens. Ardoino added:
These equity indices are strong indicators of how the Asian economy is performing. We’re proud to give Bitfinex Derivatives traders freedom to trade these contracts at any time of the day and week.
