Leverage on Waves.Exchange is a floating leverage margin trading tool. Unlike classic leverage trading, there’s no need to deposit any collaterals in leverage, so there is no margin call risk and you do not need to worry about collateral, margin maintenance, and therefore, the liquidation risk.

Instead of constant leverage, Waves DeFi assets have a constant target range of leverage.

Waves DeFi assets with floating leverage are currently available on the Waves.Exchange:

1) BTCUP and BTCDOWN — constant target range of leverage within from -3x to 3x.

2) WAVESUP and WAVESDOWN — constant target range of leverage within from -3x to 3x.

For instance, BTCUP & BTCDOWN - the leveraged movement of BTCUP and BTCDOWN assets depend on the market conditions and the value of their underlying asset Bitcoin (BTC). A 1% rise in the BTC price causes x3 growth in the price of the position asset BULL (BTCUP). In case the BTC price falls, the price of the position asset BEAR (BTCDOWN) rises.
