Crypto Exchanges Update: OKEx Amplifies Leverage and Binance 'DEX' Reduces ‘Issue’ and ‘List’ Fees

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.

Binance DEX Reduces Issue and List Fees

Malta-based Binance cut down token-related fees on the testnet of its DEX. The alteration was subsequent to a proposal authorized by validators. The new fees are 1,000 Binance Coin (BNB) for Issue and 2,000 BNB for List. Aside from the two changes, other fees on the platform are unaffected.

20 addresses, each will receive 200 BNB from the Testnet faucet, can be registered by each participant. Participants can amass enough funds in aggregate to execute Issue or List actions.

Binance also informs DEX testers of the CLI proposal update and of the four-hour wait for each proposal before voting results will come out.

By the way, Twitter was lit with a discussion of whether the Binance undertaking was a DEX or not. Binance CEO, Changpeng ‘CZ’ Zhao, wrote, ‘Don’t call it a DEX,’ rather, ‘call it an exchange.’

The downside is that with higher spread there will be less pairs to trade. let targetVolDiv = 5; - this is how many times lower than the average, per base (BTC, BNB, ETH) the volume is allowed to be to consider a pair to trade. let targetVolMult = 20; - and this is how much larger than the average. If these are higher, then you'll notice more pairs that want to trade, but the downside of a higher Div is that they will have lesser volume and might not be really liquid... a higher Mult means that the more liquid markets might not have a good enough spread. let maxOrder = 1500; - this means that the maximum order size for a pair can be 1500 units. This is to protect against trading shitcoins that will get 12000 coins for 0.001 btc, because these pairs generally trade at a bid/ask that's exactly 1 point away from each other.. so think about it like we don't want to trade Doge because we want to have our own unique orders above/below the bid/ask let minOrder = 0; - the minimum order amount (a fix that's since been fixed better, might as well leave at 0) let maxBetterVol = 1.5; - this exists as a matter to ensure people can run competing bots. If there's a # volume of tokens/coins better than your bid/ask order # of this multiplier or less, it won't re-enter the market. If the amount better than your order * this multiplier is larger, it'll re-enter the market
