Fees

Every trade requires a taker and a maker. An order providing liquidity to the order book is called a maker order. An order taking liquidity is called a taker order.

Fees depend on the type of contract and the user profile. Fees for outright contracts - Perpetual Contracts and Futures contracts - and Exchange Quoted Spreads (or simply spreads) for different user profiles are as follows:

Settlement Fees: A settlement fee equal to the taker fee for the contract will be charged on the open position of the expiring contract.

Deposits/Withdrawal: Bitfex does not charge fees for deposits/withdrawals. However, while withdrawing from the exchange, you'll have to pay the dynamically set minimum network fee. There are no minimum or maximum limits on deposits or withdrawals.

Liquidation Fee: A liquidation fee of 0.6% will be charged when a position is liquidated by the Bitfex Risk Engine. This fee will go to the insurance fund.
