Within two weeks, CEX.IO Bitcoin Commodity Exchange introduces transaction fee, which will be implemented in two stages, namely fixed commission of 0.2% and further transition to the flexible fee, that of 0.5% to 0.2%. The fee implementation is aligned with the upcoming project monetisation and introduction of the most in-demand trading pairs, such as BTC/USD and USD/GHS.
It is widely known that CEX.IO has been barely the only Bitcoin exchange, which enabled users to buy or sell traded commodities without any fees. After the fee is implemented each trade transaction will be conducted inclusive % commission. The fee introduction will be executed in two steps. The first one will embody a standard 0.2% commission on all buy/sell transactions and will last one month.
After that, the amount of the fee will become flexible and vary for each user, depending on a 30-day trading history. Thus, the transaction commission at CEX.IO will finally lie between 0.5% and 0.2%. Users will be able to get acquainted with the full fee policy at the respective “Transaction Fee” page.
Despite the fact that such step slightly moves CEX.IO towards the way other Bitcoin exchanges operate, the platform provided official explanation to the decision. The thing is, CEX.IO is currently preparing the necessary foundation for the introduction of US dollars on its platform. Without any doubt, this will be an incredible and awaited advancement for the users, who will be able to, for instance, buy Bitcoin mining power and withdraw funds in the currency they are used to right on CEX.IO without any the necessity to convert cryptocurrencies somewhere else.
Fiat currency introduction would require significant financial investments, legislative grounds and joint efforts of all CEX.IO staff, believes CEX.IO’s spokesperson Jeffrey Smith. “Surely, we understand that some of our users may be dissatisfied with the mandatory transaction fee. However, considering all the pros and cons, we are confident that the possible negative reaction will be totally offset by adding USD to the list of our trading pairs, and some upcoming changes related to our affiliate program”, says he.
