2. Actual Funding Fee
Cross margin mode: during funding, the fee will be charged directly from the RPL. However, the maximum funding fee is capped when the margin ratio = maintenance margin ratio+ Forced-Liquidation Fee Rate.
Fixed margin mode: during funding, the fee will first be charged from the RPL, followed by the fixed margin of the position. However, the maximum funding fee is capped when the margin ratio = maintenance margin ratio+ Forced-Liquidation Fee Rate.
So, the actual funding fee to be received by a user depends on the amount taken by the system from the counter party
