Leverage denotes a situation when borrowed capital acts as a funding source of an investment. To open a leveraged position, traders have to deposit funds, usually stablecoins. Depending on the leverage size, the initial deposit is magnified and a trader is able to open a bigger position. As a result, expected profits can be times bigger. However, if the opposite happens, losses will be multiplied and if there isn't enough funds to cover the losses, your position will be liquidated.
