What is BUSD
If you’re familiar with the Binance platform, you must have seen the BUSD symbol used as a currency pair. You may have wondered why you need to hold BUSD. Let’s start with what BUSD is.
BUSD is a stablecoin founded by Binance and Paxos. It is a fiat-backed stablecoin pegged to the US Dollar. It is equal to the price of the US Dollar. When the price of a US Dollar rises or falls, BUSD also rises or falls. Why do traders and investors use BUSD?
BUSD stablecoin allows crypto users to swap their crypto holdings into a stable asset without leaving the blockchain. The Binance USD stablecoin allows investors and traders to hold digital assets with low volatility.
Let’s talk about BUSD-margined contracts and why they are important.
What Are BUSD-margined Contracts
BUSD-margined contracts are a type of linear futures that allows you to open a position and settle your profits or loss in BUSD. Trading with this option requires you to have BUSD as your available margin. Binance supports BUSD-margined contracts such as ETH/BUSD, BNB/BUSD, BTC/BUSD, DOGE/BUSD, XRP/BUSD, ADA/BUSD, AXS/BUSD, EOS/BUSD, and so many more pairs.
You can easily calculate your ROI from trades with BUSD margin contracts. For example, if you make a profit of 150 BUSD from trade, that is approximately $150 since the value of 1 BUSD is almost equal to $1.
Why Trade BUSD-margined Contracts
There are a few advantages to trading BUSD-margined contracts. Let me highlight a few of them.
One of such advantages is its versatility. The BUSD pair is a universal one. This means that traders can create multiple contracts at any given time. You can open any contract and get settled in a stablecoin. You don’t need to buy an underlying cryptocurrency to fund a position.
Another advantage is that it is easier to calculate your profit or loss. Since the BUSD is pegged to the price of the US Dollar. This means that 1 BUSD should always be equal to 1 USD. It’s easier to calculate how much you have made or lost in terms of fiat money.
