OKEx implemented adjustments to increase leverage on margin trading to 5x on leading trading pairs in its platform. Binance decreased token fees on its decentralized exchange testnet

OKEx Ups the Leverage Ratio

Hong Kong-based OKEx increased the margin trading leverage for the best performing trading pairs in the exchange. Trading pairs BTC/USDT, ETH/USDT, ETH/BTC, BCH/USDT, BCH/BTC, LTC/USDT, LTC/BTC, ETC/USDT, ETC/BTC, EOS/USDT, and EOS/BTC can now be leveraged up to 5x. The adjustment was made as a response to market demand, reads the exchange’s announcement.

Under the 5x leverage, if the risk ratio is equal to or exceeds 125%, the trader has the option to transfer out the surplus balance from their margin account. The 3x payout scheme remains the same in which when the risk ratio is on the 150% level or higher, the surplus held can be transferred out.

OKEx traders will be informed when their portfolio’s risk ratio dives below 120%. And if it hits 110% or lower, forced liquidation will be prompted.
