Binance Expands Trading Options with New Funding Rate Arbitrage Bot and Full Access to Spot Copy Trading

Discover Binance’s latest offerings! Introducing the Funding Rate Arbitrage Bot and full access to Spot Copy Trading. Enhance your trading strategies today!

Binance, the prominent blockchain ecosystem behind the largest crypto exchange by trading volume, has launched a new Funding Rate Arbitrage Bot and fully rolled out Spot Copy Trading to all eligible users.

Currently, Binance’s Trading Bots Marketplace offers nearly 120,000 active trading strategies. The platform continues to expand its array of automated trading tools, including popular bots like Grid Trading for Spot and Futures, Rebalancing Bot, Auto-Invest, and Dollar-Cost Averaging (DCA).

The Funding Rate Arbitrage Bot is Binance’s first bot to automate a delta-neutral spot and futures arbitrage strategy. It eliminates the need for manual execution of separate spot and perpetual futures trades. This bot allows traders to earn funding fees by opening a perpetual futures position and hedging it with an opposite position on the spot market.

The primary advantage of the Arbitrage Bot is its automated execution of spot and futures trades based on user-defined strategy parameters. This removes the complexity of managing separate trades on different interfaces. The Arbitrage Bot’s strategies are managed in users’ trading bots wallet, making performance monitoring straightforward.

Funding fees, unique to crypto markets, help align spot and perpetual futures prices. Long traders pay short traders when the funding rate is positive, and short traders pay long traders when the rate is negative.

Users can deploy two types of strategies with the Arbitrage Bot:

– Positive Carry: Buys assets on the spot market and shorts the corresponding perpetual futures contract to collect funding fees from a positive rate.

– Reverse Carry: Sells assets on the spot market and goes long on perpetual contracts to collect funding fees from a negative rate.

The Arbitrage Bot is available on the Binance website and will be released on the Binance App on May 30.

Rohit Wad, Binance’s Chief Technology Officer, stated, “We believe in giving users more choices and we constantly review community feedback to understand what users want. Our Funding Rate Arbitrage Bot is a simple and effective tool to automate for users who already manually deploy arbitrage strategies. Its user-friendly interface means more users can try new strategies. We continue to build trading tools for our users and we are pleased that the community’s reception to our Spot Copy Trading launch has been very positive with over 700 Lead Traders registrations so far.”

Spot Copy Trading Now Fully Available

Binance introduced Spot Copy Trading to meet user demand, initially releasing it to Lead Traders in late April.

More than 70% of active Lead Traders have recorded positive P&L since registering for Spot Copy Trading, despite a volatile market that saw overall crypto market capitalization drop by 11% in April.

Following its successful introduction to Lead Traders, Spot Copy Trading is now available to all eligible users from May 15 onwards, allowing them to follow Lead Traders and replicate their portfolios.
