“The cross collateral feature does provide users the option to use asset in their spot account as a collateral or USDT at zero interest and trade out Binance Futures.”

“I certainly think the total market size will be a lot larger. It certainly will grow at least 10X, eventually 50X and 100X of the spot market.”
