Shorting with leverage for sure, couldn’t agree more! Prime XBT (https://primexbt.com
) is launching within the week (4th Feb) as a competitor to Bitmex and offers the same ability to short bitcoin with up to 100x leverage. Apparently over 125,000 people have joined the waitlist to gain access when it goes live, so I wonder if the hype is founded?
One additional thing they offer that Bitmex (or any other trading platform I’m aware of) is aggregated liquidity. The platform aggregates liquidity from the 12 leading exchanges, so it’d be like trading on 12 exchanges at once so that you can get the best possible market price, but without the risk of slippage. Available pairs for trade are: BTC/USD, ETH/USD, XRP/USD, LTC/USD and EOS/USD.
