OKEx to launch real-time settlement, allowing users to improve capital efficiency

VICTORIA, Seychelle, Dec. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- OKEx (www.okex.com), a world-leading cryptocurrency spot and derivatives exchange, is pleased to announce the launch of real-time settlement for all perpetual swaps, futures and options contracts that is coming soon to the platform. This exciting new feature will provide a better trading experience for users, improve the capital efficiency of their funds and enable greater cross-exchange arbitrage opportunities, among other benefits. 

Real-time settlements will officially begin at 8:00 am UTC on Dec. 29 on the popular ADAUSD perpetual contract. The function will then be rolled out to other major currency pairs and financial instruments on the platform over the coming months. Real-time settlements will allow users to significantly improve fund utilization, as they can withdraw their profit at any time, without waiting for the 4:00 pm UTC settlement period every day.

"This is hugely beneficial to traders carrying out cross-exchange arbitrage, as they need to settle their profit in real-time across exchanges. It will also enhance capital management across the OKEx platform," commented Lennix Lai, the head of financial markets at OKEx. "We will start with the ADAUSD market as a trial and gradually launch other major tokens from early next month."

As real-time settlements begin, any user holding an ADAUSD perpetual contract position at 8:00 am UTC on Dec. 29 will see the average open price of the position changed to the settlement base price of the last settlement of the ADAUSD perpetual contract. All realized profit and loss will be transferred to the ADAUSD perpetual account balance, and the profit will be recalculated according to the new opening average price from 8:00 am UTC on the same day.

Users can experience the real-time settlement function of the ADAUSD perpetual contract by using an API, web or the OKEx mobile app. Please visit the OKEx Support page for more information and details about the changes to the display of realized PnL, position and settlement records. 

"We are constantly working on improving the user experience and making trading on the platform as intuitive and beneficial to traders as possible. By being able to withdraw their realized profit instantly and not having to wait for the settlement period, users can engage in more efficient strategies to maximize their capital. The introduction of real-time settlements is another key upgrade at OKEx, and we believe that it will be extremely popular among users," Lennix Lai added.

In the subsequent real-time settlement operation, OKEx reserves the right to temporarily close the real-time settlement function of some currency contracts in the case of extreme market conditions.
