Firstly, you could short Bitcoin and altcoins on the Binance Margin Trading platform: Open a margin account, if you haven't already. Go to the Binance Margin Trading platform. Go to your preferred market pair, such as BTC/USDT or BTC/BUSD.
What you need to do is log into your Coinbase account, click on Bitcoin, and find the “Receive” option. The platform will generate a wallet address. Copy this address and paste it on Binance under “Funds” > “Withdraw Bitcoins”. Simple as that!
Longing Bitcoin (or simply bitcoin long) means buying Bitcoin with the expectation of the price of Bitcoin rising in the future. Essentially longing Bitcoin means buying Bitcoin at the current time to sell them at a higher price in the future.
1 A long trade is initiated by purchasing with the expectation to sell at a higher price in the future and realize a profit. 2 A short trade is initiated by selling, before buying, with the intent to repurchase the stock at a lower price and realize a profit.
The way leverage trading works is simple: As soon as you lose your initial investment (which here would be $1000,) you must sell. So the moment your BTC investment hits $49,000, it's time to go. That way the money you've received can be repaid without you ending up in debt.
To short Bitcoins, you need to contact a trading agency or platform and place a short sell order. The agency will then sell the Bitcoins from their own supply, based on the assumption that in the future you will repay them with an equal number of Bitcoins....Shorting via a Bitcoin Exchange
