Kraken launches 2x leverage on tether-dollar plus 5x for BTC/USD and ETH pairs

Digital asset exchange Kraken has announced the introduction of 2x leveraged margin trading for tether-USD (USDT/USD), the pair was first introduced back on March 29th. Further enhancements to the margin program include an increase to 5x leverage for other trading pairs as follows:

  • Bitcoin-USD (XBT/USD): 5x
  • Ether-bitcoin (ETH/XBT): 5x
  • Ether-EUR (ETH/EUR): 5x
  • Ether-USD (ETH/USD): 5x

The notice said margin trading for USDT/USD will help drive volume and liquidity, and may improve price discovery. In the past USDT traded very near $1 USD on confidence that USDT could be redeemed 1:1 for USD from the reserves held by Tether Limited (the company behind the Tether System).

However, recently USDT price has come under sell pressure because, although Tether Limited claims to maintain full reserves, the ability to redeem USDT for USD has been temporarily suspended while they transition to a new banking partner.

  • USDT/USD: 2x

What are the USDT borrow limits?
