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

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, calculated daily.

The trading volume between 00:00:00 UTC and 23:59:59 UTC will be included in the calculations. Therefore the cutoff time for any trades to be calculated for the next day is 23:59:59 UTC.

The past 30-day trading volume will then be calculated at 00:50:00 UTC on the next day and will be updated within an hour.

Trading Fee Tiers

Please refer to the trading fees and tiers schedule listed here.

Fee Schedule

At 00:50:00 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.

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 5,000 CRO.

Case Example 1

  • You want to purchase 50,000 CRO on the CRO/USDT market by placing a limit order

  • Your 30-day trading volume is currently at $1,500,000 (Tier 3)

  • 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 last traded price reaches 0.16

  • You will be receiving CRO so fees will be in CRO

The order is placed to purchase 50,000 CRO with 8,000 USDT. Since your order is executed with maker fees (Tier 3’s maker fee is 0.08%) , the fee can be calculated as 50000 * 0.08% = 40. As a result of the successful trade, you will receive 49960 CRO (49,960 = 50,000 - 40). 

Deposit Fees

There are no fees to deposit crypto to the Exchange.

Withdrawal Fees

A withdrawal from the 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 Wallet App's address will also incur a fee if completed on-chain. To avoid a fee, please use the Withdraw to App function
