HitBTC employs the “maker-taker” model with the purpose of maximizing liquidity and narrowing the spread on cryptocurrency markets. With our system, “makers” are encouraged to keep adding liquidity to the market.
The chief aim of maker-taker fees is to stimulate trading activity within an exchange by extending the incentive to post orders and facilitating trading.
On HitBTC, "Takers" are charged fees according to Trading Fee Tier.
In our maker-taker model, the "taker" is a trader who removes the liquidity from the book by placing an order that matches immediately with an existing order on the book. The taker pays the fee from the committed trade.
The "maker" is a trader who provides liquidity to the order book by placing a limit order below the best ask price for the buy and above the best bid price for the sell.
A Rebate is a reward that HitBTC pays to the "maker" for providing liquidity to a market while charging customers who take that liquidity. In other words, if a trade outside of the immediate market price is matched, we may incentivize the traders who placed the order.
Bottom line: we at HitBTC are always trying to enhance your experience with our platform, and we aim to facilitate your trading process by providing greater liquidity.
Periodically, a small Interest Rate is paid to hold a margin position open. The Interest Rate is paid regardless of whether the position is long or short. The rates are listed in the table below.
|Currency Borrowed||Daily Interest Rate|
|BCH (Bitcoin Cash)||0.018%|
|Ethereum Classic (ETC)||0.042%|
|Bitcoin SV (BSV)||0.021%|
|Binance Coin (BNB)||0.021%|
|FTX Token (FTT)||0.021%|
|Basic Attention Token (BAT)||0.021%|
|TON Crystal (TON)||0.03%|
The Interest is charged 3 times per day at 00:00 UTC, at 08:00 UTC, and at 16:00 UTC (12:00AM UTC, 8:00 AM UTC, and 4:00 PM UTC). The interest is always charged in the quote currency, for both shorts and longs. The interest is only charged for the positions that are open at the time of the charge.
If a position is liquidated - either by reaching the liquidation price or by the trader, a Liquidation Fee in the amount of 0.5% of the position’s value is charged in the quote currency (i.e. USDT on the BTC/USDT pair).
For each of the trading pairs, Borrowing Limits apply, regardless of whether a trader wants to go short or long. An individual trader will not be able to go beyond these Borrowing Limits at any time. The table below lists these limits.
