• All verified users can earn BMEX by trading perpetual and future contracts on BitMEX.com. 

  • The amount of BMEX Token earned is determined by the following formula:

[ADV-based BMEX Payout Percentage ]  *  [BMEX Eligible Fees] 

where the BMEX Eligible Fees are 80% of the Taker Fee + 20% of Maker Rewards (in absolute terms) and;
the ADV-based BMEX Payout Percentage is calculated along the progressive scale shown in the graphic.



Example:


Period: 30 days

Trading Volumes: $25,000 Taker Volume  and $17,000 Maker Volume

Fees as per Fee Table0.05% Taker Fee and 0.01% Maker Rebate


  1. Calculate your Average Daily Volume (ADV) in a period:
    Divide your Total Trading Volume (Maker Vol + Taker Vol.) by the number of days in the same period (e.g. 30 days):

= ($25,000 TVol + $17,000 MVol) / 30 days = $ 1,400 ADV


  1. Calculate the BMEX payout percentage according to the ADV and the progressive payout table:

[100% * (999-10)/1400] + [50% * (401/1400)] = 70.6% + 14.3% = 85%


  1. Calculate the BMEX Eligible Fees paid as 80% of Total Taker Fees + 20% of Total Maker Fees (absolute terms, i.e positive) in the period:

= [25,000 TVol * 0.05% * 80%] + [17,000 MVol * 0.01% *20%] = 10.3


  1. Apply the payout percentage to the Eligible Fee and convert one to one for BMEX:

For the Progressive Payout of 85% over 10.3 USD Eligible Fees you receive 8.8 BMEX in the airdrop.

= 10.3 * 85% = 8.8 BMEX
