Fees

No data Trading Fee Tier

For upgraded accounts, HitBTC utilizes a trading fee tier system, rewarding community members for high volume trading. To put it simply, the more the user trades the lower their trade fees will be. Each user's volume will be calculated according to the total amount traded equivalent to BTC at the time of the trade.

Example:
The user buys 15 EOS for 1 LTC and at the time of the trade 1 EOS is equivalent to 0.001 BTC. This means 0.015 BTC will then be added to their 30-day trade volume total.

The fees for Starter and General accounts are fixed at 0.1% Maker Fee and 0.2% Taker Fee.

Trading fees for upgraded accounts:

Tier / 30-days Trading Volume (BTC) / Maker Fee / Taker Fee
1 ≥ 0 BTC 0.07% 0.07%
2 ≥ 10 BTC 0.06% 0.07%
3 ≥ 100 BTC 0.05% 0.07%
