To enhance account security, 2FA (two-factor authentication) will be required for on-chain withdrawals effective 26 October at 04:00 UTC.
If you haven’t done this yet, please set up 2FA and a reset code at https://bitmex.com/app/securityCentre. This reset code will enable you to access your account if you ever lose access to your 2FA device.
If you’ve already enabled 2FA but haven’t yet set up a reset code, please do so via the link above before 26 October.
As always, if you have any questions we’d be happy to help via Support.
Beginning on 23 November 2021 at approximately 04:00 UTC, the following REST endpoints will no longer be supported:
Please ensure you update your API clients appropriately to avoid any disruption to your trading strategies.
The API will return a 404 status code for any requests sent to these two endpoints after this date.
This functionality update is part of the ongoing simplification of our API and trading system architecture. If you have any further questions, please contact Support.
As part of the ongoing enhancements to our infrastructure and networks underpinning our API services, BitMEX is introducing a new websocket endpoint, ws.bitmex.com/realtime (ws.testnet.bitmex.com/realtime for Testnet), which is to become the recommended domain to subscribe to any BitMEX feeds.
The websocket feeds behave the same in both domains and at this time we do not expect any breaking changes on the schema, data, and commands. Users are advised to start directing their websocket clients from the existing endpoint to the new one at their earliest convenience.
The existing endpoint, www.bitmex.com/realtime (testnet.bitmex.com/realtime for Testnet), will remain in service for approximately 3 months from now. However, note that by using it, you may experience an increase in latency and in the frequency of disconnections from 1st November 2021.
A further announcement will be made prior to retiring the existing websocket endpoint.
|Now||ws.bitmex.com and ws.testnet.bitmex.com are available for general use|
|1 November 2021||Users connecting via existing Websocket endpoints (www.bitmex.com and testnet.bitmex.com) will experience an increase in latency and frequency of disconnections|
|Approximately 1 February 2022||Users will not be able to connect to the Websocket via existing endpoints (www.bitmex.com and testnet.bitmex.com)|
If you have any further questions, please contact Support.
