How does Ethereum margin trading work?

Margin trading means that a trader has decided that they want to make a trade that is bigger than the capital they have, and look to the platform to borrow these funds in order to open a bigger Ethereum position. This leveraged margin trade then allows you to receive higher profits if the position goes the right way. However, the risk is that if the trade is unsuccessful the losses can be magnified too.

The benefits of Ethereum trading with leverage

  • Magnified profitsMargin trading is attractive to traders because it requires less capital to be deposited, but can lead to more significant profits as well.
  • Gearing opportunitiesMargin trading means there is more available traders' capital left on the account which can be used to open new positions. Freeing up capital to open new positions like this is known as gearing.
  • Gaining from the market fallThe volatile Ethereum market means there are times when the price will be falling and by using margin trading to open short positions a trader can profit from a market that is falling.

Ethereum Leverage Trading Example

For example, If a trader takes a short position of 100 ETH on 10x leverage, and the price of Ethereum falls 3% the trader will earn a profit of 30 ETH. A similar spot trade without leverage would result in only 3 ETH earned.

Disclaimer: Margin trading also comes with inherent risks if the position moves against the trade. You should never utilize 100% leverage and never invest more than you can afford to lose.

What is Ethereum?

Ethereum is a smart-contract focused crypto-asset, a currency, and a supercomputer all in one. Ethereum was co-founded by Vitalik Buterin following his interest in Bitcoin. After realizing that Bitcoin had many inefficiencies, Buterin set out to create a new cryptocurrency to address many of the features Bitcoin lacks.

Like Bitcoin, Ethereum is built on blockchain technology, among the most exciting new financial technologies in the history of the world. Ethereum is the name of the blockchain protocol itself, while Ether, or ETH, is the native coin that powers the blockchain.

Ethereum was also the main platform for launching initial coin offerings through ERC-20 tokens, an Ethereum-based standard for issuing new crypto tokens. Because of this, Ethereum is among one of the most used crypto-assets and is often ranked the number two crypto-asset by market cap.
