Trading Fees (Maker & Taker Fees)

The maker-taker fee model is commonly used throughout cryptocurrency exchanges. 

“Maker” and “Taker” fees are charged when the trade is executed and matched, and not when the trade order is created.

Maker Fee - A trade order will incur a maker fee if the trade is not matched immediately with a buyer/seller's order on the order book. These trades will be added to the order book, adding liquidity. An example of this are limit orders that do not get fulfilled immediately. 

Taker Fee - A trade order will incur a taker fee if the trade is matched immediately with an order on the order book. An example of this are market orders that are usually completely fulfilled. 

Past 30-Day Trading Volume - Your fee level is based on your past 30-Day trading volume, which is calculated from the total volume of crypto you've traded over the past 30 days, in USD equivalent and resetting daily at 00:00 UTC. Trade volume of each trade is calculated by converting the quote volume of each trade into USD.

Fee Schedule

At 00:00:00 (UTC) every day, your trading volume over the past 30-day period in USD, current CRO staking balance, and fees paid in CRO are evaluated. We will update your Tier level and corresponding maker/taker fees within 1 hour in most cases.

CRO rebate on trading fees, as well as interest earned from staking CRO, will be paid within 1 hour in most cases. 

Fee Payment & Discounts

  • You can use CRO to pay for your trading fees. Trading fees are automatically deducted from the CRO balance in your Exchange wallet, if there is sufficient CRO and the option enabled. Please refer to How do I pay for my trading fees in CRO? 
  • Discounts in the form of rebates are available on trading fees; please refer to Staking Benefits for details.

How are fees charged on partially filled orders? 

Trading fees are charged on every transaction until your order is completely fulfilled.

What are the fees for trading CRO itself?

When it comes to trading CRO, the fees will be determined by your trading tier; in order to receive a rebate, you must stake a minimum of 10,000 CRO.

Case Example 1

  • You want to purchase 50000 MCO on the MCO/USDT market for $5 USD each
  • Your 30-day trading volume is currently at $1,500,000 (Tier 4)
  • Your order is not executed immediately and the order ends up on the order book (maker fees apply)
  • The order eventually gets fulfilled in full when the ticker price reaches $5 USD or more 
  • You will be receiving MCO; fees will be in MCO

The order is placed to purchase 50000 MCO with $250,000 USD. Since your order is executed with maker fees (Tier 4’s maker fee is 0.1%) , the fee can be calculated as 50000 * 0.1% = 50. As a result of the successful trade, you will receive 49950 MCO (49950 = 50000 - 50). 

Case Example 2

  • You want to sell 50 Ethereum (ETH) on the ETH/BTC market for 0.04 each
  • Your 30-day trading volume is currently at $0.00 (Tier 1)
  • Your order is executed immediately and is fulfilled (taker fees apply)
  • You will be receiving BTC; fees will be in BTC

The order is placed to sell 50 ETH for 2 BTC. Since your order is executed with taker fees (Tier 1’s taker fee is 0.2%), the fee can be calculated as 2 * 0.2% = 0.004. As a result of the successful trade, you will receive  1.996 BTC (1.996 = 2 - 0.004).

Deposit Fees

There are no fees to deposit crypto to the Crypto.com Exchange.

A withdrawal from the Crypto.com Exchange is an on-chain transaction of transferring crypto to an external cryptocurrency address (usually a wallet or another exchange). As with all blockchain transactions, they come with a fee. 

Note: Transferring crypto to your Crypto.com Wallet App's address will also incur a fee if completed on-chain. To avoid a fee, please use the Withdraw to App function
