Scheduled
On September 29, 2022 at 12:00 UTC, there will be two funding rate changes that will affect all futures perpetual contracts:

- Funding rate realization time will change to 24 hours from 8 hours, funding will therefore settle at the end of every hour
- Maximum relative funding rate will change to 0.25% from 0.1%, the funding rate per hour will therefore be capped at ± 0.25%

Trading will continue unaffected during the change.
