What are perpetual futures contracts?

Cryptocurrency perpetual contract trading is a popular form of futures trading. A characteristic feature of such contracts is the absence of the contract’s expiration date. Contracts stay very close to the spot price due to the funding mechanism. The funding principle lies in the ability of traders to make or receive payments depending on their open positions at a specific time. A trader with a long position and a positive rate makes a payout to a trader with a short position and vice versa.
