8. What is the calculation rule of the Net Asset Value?

The NAV for Funding Account is calculated by using the formula "the sum of the hourly random snapshot of USDT-denominated Net Asset Value of the Funding Account/24 hours". 

The NAV for Trading Account is calculated by using the formula "the sum of the hourly random snapshot of USDT-denominated Net Asset Value of Trading Account/24 hours". 

The NAV for Margin Account is calculated by using the formula "the sum of the hourly random snapshot of USDT-denominated Net Asset Value of the Margin Account (Net Asset Value = Total asset value - Borrowed asset value - Payable interest)/24 hours". Please note that the Net Asset Value of the Margin Account may be negative in this case, and the NAV will be counted as zero. 

The NAV for Finance Account is calculated by using the formula "the sum of the hourly random snapshot of USDT-denominated Net Asset Value of Finance Account /24 hours".  

The NAV for the Futures Account is calculated by using the formula "the sum of the hourly random snapshot of USDT-denominated Net Asset Value of Futures Account /24 hours". 

The NAV for Trading Bot Account is calculated by using the formula "the sum of the hourly random snapshot of USDT-denominated Net Asset Value of Trading Bot Account/24 hours". 

The NAV for Wealth Account is calculated by using the formula "the daily random snapshot of USDT-denominated Net Asset Value of Wealth Account".
