Token Symbol: HBAR5S
Hedera Hashgraph (HBAR) is distributed public ledger infrastructure. According to the team, it offers significant improvements over existing blockchains in five areas: performance, security, governance, stability, and regulatory compliance.The project relies on Hashgraph, an asynchronous Byzantine Fault Tolerant (aBFT) algorithm, to achieve network consensus.The HBAR token is used for staking, as well as multiple services in the network.
HBAR5S is a leveraged token that goes short on HBAR with 5x leverage, which means that for every decrease in the price of HBAR in the market, the leveraged HBAR token seeks a 5x increase in its price. HBAR5S is required to maintain its target leverage and does so through dynamic rebalancing to gain a net value increase by 5% when the price of HBAR falls 1%.
Due to such rebalancing and investment costs, HBAR5S may suffer a net value loss when the market fluctuates. Please note, AscendEX’s leveraged tokens are not suitable for long-term investment. Investors must be cautious while investing in leveraged tokens and manage their investment risks in a timely manner.
Leveraged tokens differ from regular tokens for spot trading in that there is higher risk and volatility, which could bring about great returns or losses in a single day. Please learn more about leveraged tokens in our help center before making an investment.
