3. Transfer your funds
After adding funds to your Spot Wallet (My Wallet), you can now transfer them to your BTSE Futures Wallet.
From your ”My Wallet” dashboard, click on “Transfer”.
From the drop-down menu, select “Spot Wallet”.
Now, you can select one of the options supported by BTSE.
The first option is “Cross”, which will allow you to add funds to all futures positions.
Otherwise, you can choose one of the BTSE futures contracts, including Bitcoin Perpetual, Ethereum Perpetual and Litecoin Perpetual, among others.
Once the transfer is complete, you can visit the “Futures” section of your dashboard to check that the transfer was successful.
Moreover, you will find your BTSE futures funds on BTSE’s futures trading page.
4. Check BTSE’s futures trading platform and start trading
Select “Trade” and choose “Futures”. The BTSE futures trading platform will appear.
From the platform, you can check the funds available under the order details, according to the contract you chose from the “Futures” section – or for all positions.
The available balance is calculated considering wallet value, total margin, and unrealized profit and loss (P&L).
Now you are ready to start trading BTSE futures contracts and benefit from the advantages of this kind of derivatives.
