Trading Fees

Fees

FTX offers some of the lowest trading fees in the industry. You can even reduce them to zero by holding its token.

FTX trading fees follow a tiered structure, whether you are trading cryptocurrency or futures. The more you trade, the lower your fees. You can even reduce maker fees to zero by staking just 25 FTT. Please note that FTT, the FTX token, is not available to residents of the United States and other jurisdictions. For simplicity, the fees shown on this page are entry-level fees.

Like most exchanges, FTX differentiates between "maker fees" and "taker fees". Taker fees apply when your order takes liquidity away from the market, as is the case with market orders. Maker fees apply when your order adds liquidity, as is the case with limit orders.

Margin Trading Fees

Fees

Trade on margin with some of the lowest borrowing rates on the market.

When you trade on margin on FTX, you’ll borrow from others on its exchange, rather than FTX. The interest rate you’ll pay reflects the rate charged by lenders, plus a fee charged by FTX. As interest rates are updated hourly, FTX publishes both the previously hourly borrow rate as well as its best estimate of the next applicable rate.

To help you compare margin trading fees across exchanges, we’ve converted their fees into daily equivalent rates. As FTX updates its rates every hour, please visit FTX.com for the most up-to-date information.
