Bitfinex will release real-time clearing data updates to prepare for its 100x leveraged derivatives

According to The Block, on July 31, cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex announced that it will release real-time clearing data updates on its trading website in preparation for launching its new derivatives next week. Bitfinex CTO Paolo Ardoino revealed last week that the exchange will launch derivatives with up to 100 times leverage. Because high leverage means high risk, Ardoino said that public clearing information can help investors who want to hold leveraged positions to keep abreast of market trends.
