How to place Orders with BLADE?
When users place orders, BLADE will first calculate the position’s post-trade liquidation price, initial margin requirement and earmarked exit fees as well as the order’s trading fee/rebate. BLADE’s crypto matching orders allow the trader to fix positions in pre and post-trade liquidation price, which result in preventing unrealized losses.
BLADE offers heightened security of user funds through multi-signature wallets. Of which, 100% of user Bitcoin funds are held in our offline (air-gapped) vaulted cold storage system and every withdrawal is audited manually by the BLADE security team.
