Take out a loan by transferring assets to your margin wallet as the collateral, then you can sell the token at a higher price level. After that, you can buy it back at a lower price level. You return the token borrowed and the profit is equal to the price difference.
To sell, users are required to borrow BTC from the platform. After borrowing BTC from the platform and then selling at a higher price level, you can make a profit from the trade when you buy the BTC back at a lower price level.
