Note:

  • Having a high offer margin that doesn't reflect the actual price that will be paid in trades is considered as fake advertising and is forbidden as per our TOS.
  • Some exceptions may apply to our long-term users only. Currently, we do not offer any personalized margin limits.
  • It is also possible to set a negative margin for your offers. The limit for negative margin is always -99%.
