What are Binance usdt-m and coin-m futures?

USDT-margin futures are similar to traditional standard futures with margin and settlement in fiat currency (dollars, euros, etc.).

COIN-margin futures have a margin and are calculated instead of an asset (i.e. in Bitcoin or altcoins).

Simply put, in the first case you get a profit in dollars, in the case of coin-m futures you get a reward in coins. (Bitcoin or altcoin, depending on which coin you trade)

What is the difference between Binance usdt-m and coin-m futures?

The main difference between the two types of futures is that with USDT-M you can hold and make a profit only in stablecoins (USDT or BUSD). It's the opposite at Coin-M. Here you can hold and make a profit only in the coins that you trade (Bitcoin or altcoins). Let`s get into details.

USDT-M futures

When you trade the crypto using USDT-M futures, you get profit in USDT or BUSD (stablecoins).

Imagine that you have balance of $5000. For example, you think that Bitcoin will rise and you decide to open a long trade using all your $5000 with x1 leverage. The current BTC price is $5000. In a few days Bitcoin growth to $10,000 and brings +100% profit to your balance. Now you have an initial balance of $5,000 and +$5,000 in profit. The current balance is $10,000.

This is an easy way to increase your balance in stabelcoins. But what's so special about Coin-M?

Coin-M futures

When you trade the crypto using Coin-M futures, you get a profit in the COINS (Bitcoin, Ethereum, Solana, Polkadot etc.) in which you open a trade.

Imagine that you bought 1 Bitcoin at $5000 and you want to increase it`s amount. To do this, you open a long trade at $5000 per BTC using Coin-M futures. In a few days Bitcoin rises to $10,000 by 100%.

As a result, you make a profit in Bitcoin, and now you have 1 Bitcoin + 100% profit in BTC = 2 Bitcoins in total. But the most important thing is that you now have 2 Bitcoins for $10,000 each, because the price of BTC is also rise for 100%. Now you have 2 BTC on your balance ($20,000 in total).

If you want to grow the number of your Ethereums, you can open a trade on Coin-M futures and get profit in it. The same with the other altcoins which you want to trade.

Traders start buying Bitcoins at the bottom of the cycle. Then the number of bitcoins increases throughout the upward trend. Then record profits at market highs.
