Cryptocurrency trading operates in a similar manner to trading on a stock exchange, but is limited to cryptocurrency exchanges. Many exchanges use a tiered fee structure based on a percentage of the user's 30-day trading volume. It is important to understand the fees associated with trading cryptocurrency in order to create profit-maximising strategies.


Cryptocurrency exchange fees can vary significantly depending on the exchange you use. Some exchanges charge a flat fee for all trades, while others charge a percentage of the trade amount. Some exchanges also offer discounts for users who hold certain types of memberships or who trade large volumes.


Here are some examples of cryptocurrency exchange fees:


Kraken: 0.16% for makers and 0.26% for takers on most trades, with discounts available for users who hold the exchange's native token (XBT) or who trade large volumes.


BingX: As low as 0.075% for makers and takers on most trades.
