Important note
When considering trading on margin, you should determine how the use of margin fits your own investment philosophy. It is important that you fully understand the risks, rules, and requirements involved in trading digital assets on margin. Margin trading increases your level of market risk. You may lose some or all of the collateral you post in connection with a margin trade. Blockchain.com may initiate the sale of digital assets in your account, without contacting you, to meet a margin call. You are not entitled to an extension of time on a margin call. Further details are set out in the Margin user agreement.
