💥Leveraged tokens, is an invention of the FTX exchange , with leveraged exposure without taking care of the margin, requirements, management, and liquidation risk. In other words, Leveraged tokens are the easiest way to do leverage trading
but are still not safe from the risks of severe losses, although the risk of liquidation is no longer It does not exist, but it can reduce asset to zero, especially in the long term.

🔰Leveraged tokens are often the most misunderstood products in the crypto industry. These tokens are essentially funds that use derivatives and leverage to amplify the returns of an underlying asset. Typically, a leveraged token offers a multiplier of an index or a specific asset's daily return. For instance, a 3x Long BTC will generate triple the daily returns of Bitcoin.

leveraged tokens are built to multiply the underlying asset's daily return-the main component to remember here is DAILY. The leverage factor of a token will be reset every day. As a result, the performance of a token and its underlying asset can differ over the long term.

✳️While the comparison of daily and total returns can sound trivial, the math behind them differs in contrast. For example, even a non-leveraged portfolio that loses 10% on one day would not be able to break even with a simple 10 % increase on the next day. An investment of $100 that loses 10% on one day is worth $90 at the end of the day. But if the price goes up 10 percent on the second day, that's a 10 percent rise from $90, bringing the price at $99. Clearly, the math didn't add up as you would expect.

As such, in the event of losses, a portfolio needs a return greater than its loss to break even. The graph in above chart shows the subsequent rate of return needed to break even at varying levels of portfolio losses.
