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.

Binance IEO Cryptocurrency Drops by 60% in an Hour as Traders Get Rekt

Matic Network [Matic] dropped 60% from a price of $0.041; it records a daily low at $0.011. The dump initiated a series of memes jokes on the fall. However, the buyers of the cryptocurrency just experienced a thrilling cryptocurrency roller coaster. TraderXO who was even apprehensive of a dump tweeted, Ok – no one expected this much of a dump in one hour MATIC/USD 1-Day Chart on Binance (TradingView) So What Happened with Matic Network? Matic Network primarily trades on Binance with around 95% of the total trading volume. Hence, the most obvious suspicion would be a dump at the exchange. The memes of Binance CEO, Changpeng Zhao pulling off the dump are rampant in crypto-twitter. Binance just pulled a Thanos on Matic — Josh Rager 📈 (@Josh_Rager) December 10, 2019 The charts reveal an apt example of a pump and dump pulled off in the crypto markets. MATIC gained 175% in less than a fortnight, as the price skyrocketed from $0.015 to $0.041. MintFlint Airdrop has been identified as the leading cause of the pump. The crypto project announced leveraging MATIC for their scaling solution and also distribute Flint tokens according to the MATIC help by users. Ironically enough, MintFlint platform ‘allows traders to subscribe to other traders and be notified when they buy/sell coins.’ One of the other leading causes of the drop has been the 20X leveraged margin trade listed on India’s derivatives exchange, Delta Exchange.  The cryptocurrency also lacks proper distribution and hence the liquidity is on the low side as well. The  tweeted, Haha thought it was an exit but it’s just the free market. The real root of this volatility is an insanely skewed distribution of $MATIC which equals a highly illiquid market. “The top 100 holders collectively own 99.11% (9,911,470,937.07 Tokens) of #Matic Token” In short, the market capitalization of the cryptocurrency was far too susceptible to manipulation and whale action.  Some of the other IEOs also followed suit at Binance with the Matic Network like the Harmony (One) and Ravencoin as well.
