If your account is registered with a referral link, then only the Binance spot market will be available with a free Crypto license. Futures trading will be available when using either the full Tiger.Trade license or the Tiger.Trade Broker program, which offers an unrestricted access to the Crypto license. You can find out more about the connection to Tiger.Trade Broker by following this link.
