Flash News: OKX to list bi-monthly and bi-quarterly USDT and crypto-margined futures for BTC


NASSAU, the Bahamas, Nov. 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OKX, a leading Web3 technology company, has issued updates for the day of November 4, 2023.

OKX to list bi-monthly and bi-quarterly USDT and crypto-margined futures for BTC

In order to improve market liquidity and offer more trading opportunities, OKX is to adjust the expiration date rules for BTC/USDT and BTC/USD margined futures contracts.


Starting at 8:00 am UTC on November 17, 2023, OKX is expanding the available durations for BTC/USDT and BTC/USD margined futures contracts to monthly and bi-monthly bringing the total number of supported durations to 6 with weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, and bi-quarterly.

As of November 2, 2023, and until 8:00 am UTC on November 8, 2023, the names of all futures contracts will progressively be adjusted, so they display their respective expiration dates using the format “crypto pair-DDMMMYY”

The names of all futures contracts in the API services are exempt from this new display rule. New enumeration values, “this_month” and “next_month”, will be added to the alias field in the API’s returned parameters.

Furthermore, after futures contracts expire at 8:00 am UTC on November 17, 2023, new futures contracts will be generated with expiration dates of December 1, 2023 (bi-weekly), January 26, 2024 (bi-monthly), and June 28, 2024 (bi-quarterly). Following this adjustment, all the available expiration dates for newly listed contracts will be as follows:

  • Weekly: November 24, 2023
  • Bi-weekly: December 1, 2023
  • Monthly: December 29, 2023
  • Bi-monthly: January 26, 2024
  • Quarterly: March 29, 2024
  • Bi-quarterly: June 28, 2024
