Coin-margined futures trading shows a turnover of $1.9 billion since it was launched. This Huobi product showed its first-ranked volumes just eight months after it kicked off.

Huobi has also boasted that, among its derivatives products, USDT margined perpetual swaps are growing the strongest. The rise in the volumes of this product accounts for almost 23 percent of the overall derivatives trading volume as of Dec. 3 this year.

The platform expects this percentage to rise in the future as they are adding new functions to the products based on USDT perpetual swaps.
