  1. Click on Dumb (Beta) Icon. The position interface will change to Dumb mode.

  1. Select Position: Choose to long or short the underlying asset*

    1. For long positions: If the expiry price is greater than the entry price, user will win the trade and make profit.

    2. For short positions: If the expiry price is less than the entry price, users will win the trade and make profit.

    3. Otherwise, user will lose the entire collateral.

    4. Refer to notes for more details on position

  2. Set Margin and Amount: Select your margin asset (USDC, USDT, CAKE, etc.) and specify the amount for collateral.

  1. Monitor Trade: Once the trade is placed, monitor its progress until completion via the “Position” tab. Users cannot close trades before expiration

Extra Note on Position

  • Please note that the expiration timer doesn't start when you click on the 'OpenPosition' button; instead, the 60-second / selected duration countdown commences from the instant the transaction gets confirmed on the blockchain

  • The price you see displayed serves only as a reference. The final entry price will be determined by the price point at the exact moment the transaction is confirmed on the blockchain. This will be updated on the “position” tab

Tips for Using Dumb Mode

  • Understand the Risks: Be aware of the high risks involved, especially with the -100% ROI on losses.

  • Manage Your Collateral: Only invest what you can afford to lose.

  • Stay Informed: Keep up to date with market trends for the assets you're trading.
