Perpetual (never expiring) contracts are now available on all assets. This means you can open a position and keep it open indefinitely. It will not close until you decide to close it.
New Leverage levels: 1x and 2x
With 1x leverage you can trade assets as you would on a spot exchange, the only difference being that you can only withdraw ETH, so if you buy BTC or other assets you cannot withdraw them, you can only earn the profit on the position in ETH.

Deployed an updated contract that solves a minor issue in the logic that prevented expired positions from closing properly.

Position expiration bug fix. We have fixed an annoying bug that would throw an error when closing some expired positions and prevent them from closing.
Longer expiration terms for highly leveraged contracts. Now, up to 30D expirations available on all leverages.
Perpetual contracts are now available. Perpetual contracts are futures contracts without an expiration date. Positions on perpetual contracts do not expire and can only be closed through the order book.
Fee Credit implementation is now possible. The new contracts allow dynamic reduction of trading fees for users with Fee Credit on their account.
Funding Cost is no longer reserved in the margin. Funding costs for the life of the contract will no longer be reserved during position opening. Instead, the liquidation price will be adjusted during the time the position is open to take into account the accumulating funding cost. This allows us to offer long term and perpetual futures contracts for high leverage positions.
Taker fee will be charged to close an expired position. When a position is expiring the trader will be charged the taker fee for the closure of the position to cover the gas and oracle costs.
