When you trade on margin on FTX US, you’ll borrow from others on its exchange, rather than FTX itself. The interest rate you’ll pay reflects the rate charged by lenders, plus a fee charged by FTX US. As interest rates are updated hourly, FTX publishes both the previously hourly borrow rate as well as its best estimate of the next applicable rate.
