At CEX.IO, we are constantly improving the quality of our service and providing new opportunities for trading. We are working on the infrastructure improvements as well as adding new features. We have already enabled fast card processing, increased the efficiency of orders processing, added new coins, increased limits, etc.

Now, we have taken the decision to increase the trading fees, which will help us to continue the positive changes.

Introducing New Fees

Since December 13, 2017, 1:00 PM UTC, they will be as follows:

Trade Volume (30 days), BTC Taker fee Maker fee
≤ 5 0.25% 0.16%
≤ 30 0.23% 0.15%
≤ 50 0.21% 0.13%
≤ 100 0.20% 0.12%
≤ 200 0.18% 0.10%
≤ 1000 0.15% 0.08%
≤ 3000 0.13% 0.04%
≤ 6000 0.11% 0.00%
> 6000 0.10% 0.00%

Fees Explained

Please, note that we have kept the connection between the trading volume and the charges imposed on the users. So, the more you trade over 30 days, the smaller fees you pay for the completed orders.

At the same time, we continue to calculate fees according to the taker-maker scheme. The makers will be granted a small benefit in the form of lower charges when compared to the takers.

What Taker and Maker Means?

Each executed order involves two parties: the maker and the taker.

The taker is the person whose order matches the one already available on the market. Basically, the takers just come and have their orders completed, which reduces market liquidity.

The maker is the one who places an order and waits until it is executed. Such orders add the liquidity to the market as they stay in the order book and await the execution.

With the new fees, we hope to make the experience with the platform even better for YOU.
