Altcoin Futures Contracts Changes
2018-3-29 05:22:05

On 30 March 2018, we are making the following changes to Altcoin products:

  • The 0.25% settlement fee will be removed on future products. We hope that will encourage greater liquidity by removing barriers to entry and exit.
  • We will be removing the DASH, ETC, NEO, XMR, XLM, and ZEC pairs after they expire, for the time being. This is to free up trading engine capacity on our more popular contracts. After certain optimisations are made, we may re-list them.
  • The ADA, BCH, ETH, LTC, and XRP contracts will be re-listed for another quarterly today:
    • BitMEX Cardano / Bitcoin 29 June 2018 futures contract (ADAM18)
    • BitMEX Bitcoin Cash / Bitcoin 29 June 2018 futures contract (BCHM18)
    • BitMEX Ether / Bitcoin 29 June 2018 futures contract (ETHM18)
    • BitMEX Litecoin / Bitcoin 29 June 2018 futures contract (LTCM18)
    • BitMEX Ripple / Bitcoin 29 June 2018 futures contract (XRPM18)
Share Orders, Positions, and PNL with Trollbox Slash Commands
2018-3-26 04:17:30

Today, BitMEX launches an easy, verifiable way to share your positions, orders, and PNL with the Trollbox community: slash commands!

Just type / at the beginning of one of the following combinations to send an official view of your activity on BitMEX:

  1. /orders : Share all your open orders.
  2. /orders <symbol>: Share your open orders for a symbol.
  3. /position <symbol>: Share your positions for a symbol.
  4. /pnl <symbol> : Share your total Profit and Loss (PNL) for a symbol.
  5. /rpnl <symbol>: Share your Realised PNL for a symbol.
  6. /upnl <symbol>: Share your Unrealised PNL for a symbol.
  7. /help: Open a reference guide below the Trollbox.

In the above examples, symbol refers to the name of a contract, such as XBTUSD, XBTM18, and ETHH18.

Typing /orders with a symbol like XBTUSD will share all of your open XBTUSD orders in a blue box below your message:

Notice the BitMEX logo in the box? This is how you know the message was generated by the system, and was not a forgery by a user.

Slash commands are available now on all channels, and Testnet. Give it a try today and let us know what you think!


Enable Two-Factor For Your Account
2018-2-28 16:43:51

This week, BitMEX has seen a higher-than-normal rate of account takeovers due to accounts and email addresses protected only with a single, reused password across many services. This opens your account up to significant risk if any service you use is compromised, or your email is compromised. Please be very careful with your BitMEX account and follow these steps to stay safe:

  • Use strong, randomized passwords in a password manager
  • Do not reuse passwords between services
  • Always enable Two-Factor, both on BitMEX and on your email accounts.
