Trading with leverage can substantially increase the profit margins without depositing a lot of your own capital. However, it's important to understand what one is doing before embarking on the first leverage trade.

As Warren Buffet famously said, "When you combine ignorance and leverage, you get some pretty interesting results.” - interesting not in the best way, if you consider how many leverage traders are wiped off the market, every time Bitcoin experiences a lot of volatility.

With leverage, you can amplify your buying power by borrowing capital from the platform you're trading on, in our case, from Bitcoin.com Exchange.

While it can greatly increase potential returns, leverage trades simultaneously increases risk exposure.

On our exchange, there are two different ways to benefit from leverage trading. Either you can go to our Margin Trading desk and trade the supported pairs with the leverage offered, or you can use our crypto futures.

All information you need to make your first futures trade can be found here.
