BIT’s insurance fund is the platform’s second line of defense. The first one is our liquidation methodology. In any case, you can track the current state of the insurance fund here.
The platform evaluates the risk of your portfolio through complicated computations of the most likely loss that could occur to a portfolio under a series of hypothesis. After the PM account has been activated, you will be able to find the different risk parameters on the “Portfolio Margin” page of the exchange.
Compared to regular models, the PM one is more rewarding toward people who do heavy hedging.

The unified margin system represents an upgraded risk-management system that offers a one-account solution to users by allowing them to use all assets in the account as collateral when trading all products.
The way it works is that all currencies in your account will be calculated in their USD value. There will also be a certain haircut ratio that would deliver margin to all positions.

It’s worth noting that apart from the above, the BIT offers other features such as:
- Savings– it supports most of the popular tokens. There are no fees or lockups, and it provides competitive interest rates.
- API Connectivity– users are able to cancel on disconnection. It supports post-only orders, batch orders, and stop/trigger orders (only for futures and options).
- Block Trading– this is an ultra-fast transaction feature for futures and options in large volumes that avoids high slippage.
- Rebalancing Market Maker Strategy (RMM)– it’s a subset of automated market makers that presents a strategy to increase portfolio value in a range-bound market.
