After a breakthrough year for the exchange, this radical change in fees is an ambitious move to give back to the crypto community. The removal of fees on this scale is unmatched by any other mainstream exchange, making Gate.io the industry’s most affordable platform for crypto trading.
As a gesture of goodwill to millions of users worldwide, maker and taker fees on all spot market USD, BTC and ETH quote currency trading pairs and BTC/USDT have been completely removed as of September 16 (UTC). As of September 20 at 10:00 (UTC), there will be no fees on all spot ETF pairs, USD-M and BTC-M perpetual futures pairs and USDT-M and BTC-M delivery futures pairs.
USD-pegged stablecoins such as USDC, TUSD, PAX, BUSD and HUSD are denominated in USD and can be traded as USD spot pairs without the need for conversion and with no fees. With USD-pegged stables being the most commonly traded stablecoins on the market, having no fees helps make trading much cheaper. These reduced fees will remain in place indefinitely until further notice.
United with the crypto community
The crypto market has been pretty sluggish so far this year, so Gate.io is lending a hand to users so they can weather the storm together.
Though recently, Ethereum’s Merge has managed to spark the interest of its supporters and the entire crypto community. The ability to trade ETH at no cost will support the Ethereum community, and as an extension, its thriving ecosystem. And regardless of the ongoing bear market, Bitcoin still stands as the most traded digital asset by a wide margin. Making BTC a no-fee asset helps ease the trading experience for millions of users.
