Maker and Taker fees

How it works

The maker and taker model is a way to differentiate fees between trade orders that provide liquidity ("maker orders") and take away liquidity ("taker orders"). Maker and taker trade orders are charged different fees.

Maker fees

Maker fees are paid when you add liquidity to our order book by placing a limit order below the ticker price for buy, and above the ticker price for sell. Simply put, a trade is charged maker fees when the trade is not instantly matched by an existing order, which provides liquidity.

Example:

The current market/ ticker price of PPT is $0.50 for 1 PPT. If you place a limit sell order for $0.51 or a limit buy order for $0.49 and either of the trade goes through, you will be charged the maker fee for your transaction.

Taker fees

Taker fees are paid when you remove liquidity from our order book by placing any order that is executed against an order on the order book instantly, which removes liquidity.

Example:

The current market/ ticker price of PPT is $0.50 for 1 PPT. If you place a market order or if you want the trade to execute instantly by setting a limit buy or sell order at $0.50 per PPT, the trade that is executed will be charged taker fees.

Other fee considerations:

  • Fees are charged on a per-trade basis.
  • Fees are calculated as a percentage of the trade's quote currency volume (by default). Certain pairs allow the fee to be calculated based on the trade's base currency, which can be specified when ordering using the Fee Currency option.
  • User fee volume levels are measured using the equivalent market value of the listed
  • User fee volume levels are measured and applicable for trades occurring in the last 30 days only.
  • Discount tiers are assessed after every trade, so you get your discounts when you earn them.
  • Our volume-based discounts are designed to be attainable so investors of all sizes are rewarded for their trades.
  • If you’re not a frequent trader but you do big volume, consider our OTC service for a more cost-effective, personal experience.

Low fees for both makers and takers

Almost all of our cryptocurrency pairs follow the same fee schedule, which incentivizes market makers to increase liquidity - meaning it’s easier for you to execute trades at the price you want.

We also offer dark pool trading for all of our ether/fiat and bitcoin/fiat currency pairs. Investors who want their trades to have a smaller effect on the market are generally encouraged to make them through this service.
