It looks like their futures markets is now bigger than the spot. These future markets by Binance is fairly new.

Margin is huge of 75x like with XRP

Teaming up with others may put into #1 spot. Do realize the bigger markets seem to be questioned in the past regard to trust

High performing coins are added like LINK with 75x margin

Here is the most recent CCXT info I could find for Binance future markets

It looks Binance itself released a Python API for Binance futures

https://www.binance.com/en/support/articles/360038549492

I can confirm the Python SDK from Binance does work indeed!

In terms of volume I could calculate voume roughly:

SPOT: btc/usdt 24 hr volume 825,000,000 USDT approx = 81,000 BTC approx

FUTURES: 24 hr volume BTCUSDT =214,467 BTC approx

Futures is almost 3x bigger than spot equivilant in BTC/USDT. Make sense?
