How is the Crypto.com Exchange powered by CRO?

Crypto.com Exchange gives you the option to pay your trading fees with CRO instead of with the base cryptocurrency. You do not need to stake CRO to use this feature. 

Staking CRO on the Crypto.com Exchange will provide you with additional utility and benefits (see below).

What are the benefits of staking CRO on the Exchange? 

Staking on the Crypto.com Exchange is different than in the Crypto.com App.

Staking CRO on the Exchange will give you the following benefits:

CRO is staked for 180 days and can only be withdrawn in full once the period is over. 

You can review the balance of CRO staked and number of days until it can be withdrawn in the Stake & Earn page.

For more information on fees, please visit Fees on the Exchange.

How do I stake CRO on the Crypto.com Exchange?

Please refer here for detailed instructions on staking CRO on the Exchange.

Can I increase my staked CRO amount on the Exchange? 

Yes, you can top up your staked CRO amount at any time to earn more interest. 

Each top-up resets the staked period and will restart from 180 days once a new amount of CRO is added. 

How much can I top up at once? 

Each top up has a minimum of 10,000 CRO. 

Does the CRO I have deposited into Crypto Earn go towards CRO staking on the Exchange? 

No, the CRO deposited into Crypto Earn in the Crypto.com App is not the same as staking on the Crypto.com Exchange nor can it be transferred.

When can I withdraw my staked CRO? 

If you have staked CRO, it can only be withdrawn in full after 180 days have passed. When reviewing the staking details, the exact date and time will be provided.

The Stake & Earn main page will also display the number of days that remain in the staked period.

How does the rebate on the Exchange's trading fees work?

How do I use CRO to pay for trading fees?

Can I use my staked CRO to pay for the fees? 

No, the staked CRO cannot be traded or withdrawn and cannot be used for trading fees. You can review the balance of CRO staked and number of days until it can be withdrawn in the Stake & Earn page.

Can I use CRO to pay for withdrawal fees?

No, withdrawal fees will be settled in the currency you are receiving.

What are the fees for trading CRO itself?
