From 13 September at 04:00 UTC, BitMEX users will be able to long or short FIL via two new listings – FILUSD and FILUSDT. The Filecoin token (FIL) is the native token of the Filecoin blockchain platform, a decentralised storage system that aims to solve the issues of inefficient file storage and retrieval. With FIL, users can pay for transaction fees, or miners can use the token as collateral to guarantee their services. The best thing about trading these FIL listings on BitMEX? This allows users to gain exposure to the price of the FIL token and trade it with leverage, without needing to have FIL holdings.
