Tunbibao is an automated strategy that can intelligently dynamically adjust the investment portfolio in the selected currency combination of investors, using the exchange rate fluctuations between different currencies to earn and store coins, lock in profits, and increase the holdings of potential currencies, to obtain excess returns.

It should be noted that after the creation of the TBB strategy, the invested funds will be isolated from the trading account and used independently in the strategy. Investors need to pay attention to the risk of the overall position of the trading account after the funds are transferred out. In addition, if the currency encounters unpredictable abnormal situations such as suspension or delisting during the operation of the TBB strategy, the TBB strategy will automatically stop.

Compound Interest Products

Compared to traditional financial markets, the grid trading mechanism in the cryptocurrency market has some innovations. Taking OKX, the platform with the most complete grid products, as an example, its grid strategy includes spot grid, infinite grid, contract grid, and heaven and earth grid.

Currently, in the current market, there are more people using spot grids. The trading logic is that investors set an upper and lower boundary range and decide to divide it into N segments in between. Selling a portion will occur when it rises one segment, and buying a portion will occur when it falls one segment. It is suitable for oscillating markets, automatically buying low and selling high, and completing compound interest. The advantage of spot grids is that it is easier to hold onto coins and not completely miss out on the market. Investors can earn both grid profits and floating spreads, and can also withdraw profits at any time for other transactions. More importantly, it can continuously buy low and sell high through robots without having to constantly monitor the market, saving a lot of energy. Of course, the disadvantage is that if the oscillation range of the market is too small, it will not be able to trade, and if it continues to be a one-sided market, it will cause idle assets. It should be noted that in the current market, the capital efficiency of ordinary spot grids is relatively low, but OKX spot grids support mobile grid functions, which can move the grid according to the market within a reasonable range and effectively improve capital utilization.

Spot "Bottom Fishing" Products

Martingale Strategy

This strategy is commonly used in the foreign exchange market in traditional finance. The basic principle is to bet on only one side in a two-way market where you can buy or sell. If you bet on the wrong side, you keep adding to the opposite side until the market rebounds, allowing you to profit from buying low and selling high. OKX's spot Martingale strategy combines the basic principles of the traditional version with the characteristics of the cryptocurrency market to make a series of optimizations, balancing the average cost of investors' bottom-fishing.

Under the current market conditions, investors can choose to buy a spot DCA every time the market drops by 1-5%, and use the remaining funds to gradually increase their position to reduce the overall cost of holding. When the price rebounds, they can take profits and exit. Compared to simply holding digital currencies, the spot Martingale strategy is more flexible, capturing profits from small rebounds and continuously realizing floating profits.
