Perpetual futures contracts use funding rates as a means of guaranteeing that the contract price remains relatively close to the spot price.

When an asset's contract price exceeds its spot price, its funding rate is positive and traders who hold long positions pay a charge to traders who are shorting the asset.

On the other hand, when its contract price is less than the spot price, it returns a negative value and short sellers charge long-position holders a fee.

More traders are holding short positions when there is a negative financing rate on an asset. This indicates that a greater number of traders anticipate a decline in the asset's price than those who purchase it with the hope of selling it for a profit.

Since April 9th, WIF's Futures open interest has been continuously decreasing in addition to the negative funding rate. It was worth $302.45 million at the time of publication, but it has subsequently dropped by 41%.
