Example - Buying Futures
Zetatrader buys 1 Solana future at $220, with the underlying price of $SOL at $215. On expiry, the price of Solana has increased to $230, and the contract settles at the price of the underlying price, $230. This means that Zetatrader nets a $230 – $220 = $10 profit.
Because these contracts are cash settled, Zetatrader doesn't have to worry about receiving Solana tokens and having to sell them on market. They just pocket the $10 profit and walk away.
