Maker fee

Maker fees are paid when you add liquidity to the Bullish Hybrid Order Book (HOB) with a limit order or stop limit order.

Non-stablecoins

We do not charge maker fees for trading non-stablecoin pairs such as BTC/USD, ETH/USD, EOS/USD and ETH/BTC.

Stablecoins

Only the stablecoin pair USDC/USD will incur a 0.03% taker fee.

Taker fees

Taker fees are paid when you remove liquidity from the Bullish HOB with a market order.

For example, if you remove 1,000 EOS at US$4 in the EOS/USD market for a total of US$4,000, your fee will be expressed in USD, (the quote currency of the EOS/USD pair), equalling US$0.4, (0.01% of your total order of US$4,000).

Spread included in quoted prices

Prices quoted in the Hybrid Order Book for liquidity provided by the Bullish Liquidity Pools (BLP) include a spread as a market-making fee. The spread comprises (i) a fixed base spread and (ii) a variable spread that is determined algorithmically by the Automated Market Maker (AMM). The spread is applied to the AMM’s mid price.

BLP Base spread included in quoted price
BTC/USD, ETH/USD, EOS/USD, ETH/BTC, LTC/USD, LTC/BTC, LINK/USD, LINK/BTC 7 bps
USDC/USD 0 bps

Interest

  • Charged for margin trading.
  • The interest fee is charged in the same currency as the loan.
