I. Definitions

1. Definition of Coin-Margined Standard Futures
Coin-Margined Standard Futures use the underlying asset (such as BTC and ETH) as margin for position opening, PnL and fee settlement, etc.

2. Definition of USDT-Margined Standard Futures
USDT-Margined Standard Futures use USDT as margin for position opening, PnL and fee settlement, etc.

II. Calculation Comparison

1. Calculation of Coin-Margined Standard Futures
PnL = Transaction Direction * Trade Size * Open Price * (1 / Open Price - 1 / Close Price)
Liquidation Price in Isolated Margin Mode = Transaction Direction * Trade Size * Open Price / (0.9 * Margin + Transaction Direction * Trade Size - Trading Fee - Funding Fee)

2. Calculation of USDT-Margined Standard Futures
PnL = Transaction Direction * Trade Size * (Close Price - Open Price) / Open Price
Liquidation Price in Isolated Margin Mode = Open Price + Open Price * (Funding Fee + Trading Fee - 0.9 * Margin) / (Transaction Direction * Trade Size)

All other calculations that do not involve PnL and Liquidation are the same.

III. Advantages

(2) Greater Trading Flexibility
As a widely accepted settlement currency, USDT can significantly improve trading flexibility. It allows multiple futures contracts to be settled in the same currency, eliminating the need to purchase other underlying tokens and saving unnecessary costs.
