- Provide Bitcoin full nodes from Bisq developers (https://github.com/bisq-network/roles/issues/39) to protect against BitcoinJ vulnerabilities (BitcoinJ is blindly following longest PoW chain and not checking consensus rule violations). That also avoids the privacy issues with bloom filters. (https://github.com/bisq-network/exchange/issues/999)
- Add account age verification scheme (https://github.com/bisq-network/proposals/blob/master/payment-account-age-witness.adoc, https://github.com/bisq-network/exchange/issues/1000)
- Reduce DEFAULT_TAKER_FEE_IN_BASE_CUR from 0.003 BTC to 0.002 BTC (that is the base for a 1 BTC trade)
- Lower miner fees by fee estimation adjustments (using maxDelay 20 instead of 10 and taking average of 12 last fee results)
- Lower miner fee by transaction size calculation. Instead of using 600 bytes as estimation of trade fee tx we create a dummy tx to get the exact size id funds are on the wallet, otherwise we use 260 bytes for maker and 320 bytes for taker (deposit and payout tx are larger).
- Reduce security deposit: DEFAULT_BUYER_SECURITY_DEPOSIT from 0.03 BTC to 0.01 BTC; MAX_BUYER_SECURITY_DEPOSIT from 0.2 BTC 0.05 BTC, MIN_BUYER_SECURITY_DEPOSIT from 0.001 BTC to 0.0005 BTC; SELLER_SECURITY_DEPOSIT from 0.01 BTC to 0.003 BTC

- Improved build system
Released July 17th 2017
- The change of the application name from “bisq” to “Bisq” caused a change of the application directory as well. That caused on Linux that users wallet and data have been in the “bisq” and the app creates a new “Bisq” folder. To fix that we rename the application directory from “bisq” to “Bisq” if “Bisq” did not exist. If both already existed (if user has run 0.5.2.) we rename “Bisq” to “Bisq_backup” and “bisq” to “Bisq” assuming that the app dir with the current wallet and data was”bisq” from version 0.5.1. If case the user used the wallet and data now in “Bisq_backup” he has to move the folders content manually to the “Bisq” folder.

- Use fee estimation service form https://bitcoinfees.21.co to use dynamic mining fees.
- Use dynamic trading fees. Trading fees are based on trade amount and distance to market price. Min. fee (MF) = 0.0002 BTC, default fee (DF) = 0.002 BTC, amount factor (AF) = 1/BTC, market price factor (MF) = square root of percent value (e.g. 1% -> 1, 9% 0 -> 3, 0.01% -> 0.1). Tradeing fee = max(MF, DF * amount * AF * MF). E.g. 0.002 BTC for 1 BTC trade at 1% market price distance.

Bitfinex is a Hong Kong based trading platform that provides advanced services for cryptocurrency traders. The exchange was founded in 2012 by Raphael Nicolle. Their primary focus is on the US market.
In order to trade fiat currencies for Bitcoin, ID verification is needed. Depending on the account type (individual or corporate), the exchange can require additional documents.
Besides personal details, ID verification and proof of residence the Bitfinex verification process also requires bank statement and a signed statement confirming the validity of documents and information provided.
The verification process is a bit more of a hassle than on the other exchanges, but it’s necessary for deposits and withdrawals in fiat currency as well as for the utilization of Tether, an amazing technology that enables fiat currencies on the BTC blockchain. More on Tether can be found here.
There are no limits when it comes to trading.
Currently, Bitfinex accepts only US dollars from fiat currencies. They also accept TetherUSD and the following digital currencies:
Wire transfers are available for 0.1 percent of the amount, with a minimum fee of 20 dollars. Express wire transfers, which are completed within 24 hours on business days, cost 1 percent of the amount, with a minimum fee of 20 dollars.
Bitfinex fee structure is a bit different from the average, because it’s the maker who adds liquidity to the exchange ecology, and a taker is the one who removes it. Trading fees start at 0.1 percent for the maker and 0.2 for the taker. The first decline in fees is at 500,000 dollars traded, which is pretty high amount compared to the other exchanges. As the monthly trading volume rises, the fees steadily decline. The final point, with 30 million dollars or more traded, is 0 percent fee for the maker and 0.1 percent for the taker.
When it comes to deposits and withdrawals, everything except wire transfer is free of charge. Wire transfers cost 0.1 percent of the amount, with a minimum of 20 dollars. Express bank wire transfers which are processed within 24 hours on business days cost 1 percent of the sum with a minimum fee of 20 dollars.
The exchange also charges margin funding fees. The charge on fee collected by Margin Funding Providers is 15 percent of the fees generated by active margin funding contracts. For those who are opened by a hidden offer the cost is a bit higher and totals for 18 percent. You can save 10% with a Bitfinex Signup Coupon Code.
Bitfinex.com Trading Analysis
The trading platform is very sophisticated, and it offers a lot of trading options. The offered types of orders are:
- Trailing stop
- Fill or kill
- One cancels other (OCO)
- Hidden order
- Post-only limit order
Due to the high volume of trades and a good liquidity, bid/ask and order count is resolved in real time, allowing users to choose the best time to place an order.
The exchange also offers margin trading with 3 to 1 leverage, meaning that user has to have at least 30 percent of the sum borrowed in their account.
The margin trading is supported by margin loans. The margin loans are granted through a lending market. Basically, the user can choose to lend the capital needed by margin traders. In return, lenders receive daily interest rate on the Bitfinex platform. This type of arrangement is called Swap.
For more info check Bitfinex FAQ section, it has all the answers under trading section.
Ease of Use
Bitfinex user interface is fantastic. The platform offers quick options to buy or sell digital currencies as well as to place orders.
The website is mobile-friendly and responsive. It’s fast, and the real-time trading is possible. Mobile apps are also available, for Android and iOS.
Support is available 24/7 but only via email. Emails are typically answered within 12 hours, but in some cases, it can take longer. In addition, there’s an official forum where users can ask for help and a limited FAQ page that doesn’t cover all required information.
The Bitfinex support team has a reputation for being extremely unprofessional and rude – but some users claim it’s mostly due to one person who started to get better since then.
There are numerous user complaints online about Bitfinex, but they are mostly related to the hacking incident and the support unprofessionalism. We haven’t found any complaints about trading or funding of the accounts, but we did found complaints about the performance issues Bitfinex has when it’s higher volatility of the currencies. The problems are so frequent and so serious that the exchange even got a new nickname – Glitchfinex.
The exchange claims that 99.5 percent of client funds are kept in cold storage, with other .5 percent stays in hot wallets to ensure needed liquidity. Their cold storage system has a multisig feature and is geographically distributed in multiple secure locations.
On the client side, they offer two-factor authentication for both logins and withdrawals. The exchange claims to have “advanced verification tools” to detect if the account has been compromised, but have avoided saying more to the public.
Despite the “strong” security, the exchange has been hacked multiple times. The first major hack happened in May of 2015 when a hacker was able to steal 1500 Bitcoins from their hot wallet. The exchange was easily able to reimburse the damaged users. But, in another attack in August 2016, reimbursement question became much more delicate as 120,000 BTC worth approximately 72 million dollars were stolen from the trading platform.
The company immediately issued BFX tokens which are meant to make up for the 36 percent losses of the customers after the incident. Five months later, we’re still waiting to see how the company will handle this problem. Bankruptcy is an often-mentioned option.
On the other hand, Bitfinex has already bought back
a decent percentage ALL of their tokens and in comparison to a bancruptcy, which also would have affected all users deposis, this way might turn out as a very successful one. This is makes Bitfinex a extremely trustworthy exchange in our opinion.
The exchange does have SMS and email notifications, but PGP encryption isn’t used in email communication.
Bitfinex Review Conclusion
Even though the future of Bitfinex questionable, the reaction to the hack and the fact that they bought back all of their tokens within less than one year is remarkable. Definitely a great exchange to buy and sell Bitcoin, one of the best in terms of disaster management.
- High USD liquidity
- Low fees
- Full package of order types, margin trading and lending market
- Paid back all the losses from the hack (!)
- Not a very transparent company
- Has been hacked in 2016 (but solved it brilliantly)
The fact that they bought back all their debt-tokens makes Bitfinex one of the best Bitcoin Exchanges again. Their way of handling he hack was very innovative and a great move.

Bitfinex is a cryptocurrency exchange, which also provides margin trading. The leverage ratio may seem low to experienced forex traders, but this is due to wild and unpredictable nature of cryptocurrencies. At the time of writing of this review Bitfinex is the largest Bitcoin exchange, in terms of volume.
The company, security of funds
|iFinex Inc||Hong Kong||N/A|
Bitfinex is operated by iFinex Inc., a Hong Kong based company. Although regulation in the cryptoverse is often times a bit shaky, this company has some history in dealing with the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). Despie claiming they should not fall under any dervatives regulation, Bitfinex did pay a fine to the CFTC rgarding a particular case. Of course, we are talking about the famous hacking scandal.
In August of 2016, Bitcoin worth approximately $72 million was stolen from Bitfinex users, resulting in the second-largest hack in the history of cryptocurrency exchanges. The company reacted accordingly, trying to trace the villains. Simultaneously it issued the so called BFX tokens, to the victims. This represented a pledge by the exchange, to pay back the money, once it has the ability to do so.
An interesting development then followed, as a secondary market for these tokens emerged. Applying a strategy, used by the aptly named “Vulture hedge funds”, the initial bidders were offering 2 cents on the dollar. Obviously the uncertainty regarding the payments was very high, as people were speculating this was the end of Bitfinex. Prices started increasing, with new developments in the story. Eventually the firm paid back the entire debt, at the full promised value (and withdrew all the tokens in the process).
This story raises the credibility of Bitfinex in our eyes. The exchange had a major issue but managed to handle it well.
Important Update: As of November 9 2017, Bitfinex will no longer accept US clients in any form. This is most likely the result of a SEC guideline, which suggests all crypto-exhanges will have to at least be registered in a newly created list.
Trading instruments (cryptocurrencies)
Most of the major coins are being traded at Bitfinex. At the time of writing of this review the list includes: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, EOS, OmiseGO, Iota, Ethereum Classic, Zcash, Ripple, Dash, Santiment, and Monero.
Minimum initial deposit
The minimum initial deposit, required by Bitfinex is not specified. Forex traders are used to brokers disclosing this information in advance. Some even use it as a means of attracting new traders, like FXTM, who only require $5 for the creation of a new cent account.
Although small transfers can be made with cryptocurrencies, we suspect there may be a minimum, under which Bitfinex will not accept your transaction.
Bitfinex allows margin trading and short-selling of cryptocurrencies. The maximum leverage is 1 top 3,3. Some of the forex brokers, which provide Bitcoin trading, offer even higher leverage. For instance HYCM has set the cap at 1:10. Of course, you can only trade with cryptocurrencies at most forex brokers, without the ability to actually own and transfer them.
Do keep in mind, market moves in the cryptoverse tend to be very wild. A coin can gain or lose a significant portion of its value, within a day. On the other hand traditional fiat currencies rarely register a daily change of more than 1.5 - 2%. Trading a cryptocurrency with high leverage ratios is one of the riskiest things you could do.
When it comes to fees, charged by Bitfinex they are relatively fair when compared to the competition. In order to give you a better understanding, we have to clarify exactly how they are calculated. Unlike what you may be used to with most forex brokers, fees on crypto-exchanges are charged, based on what type of order you place.
If you buy from the lowest available ask, you are effectively taking away liquidity from the market, which results in you paying the higher “taker fee”. Alternatively, if you place your own bid/ask in the order book, other traders can “aggressively” make a trade with it. This is called providing liquidity, in which case you pay the lower “maker fee”.
The charges at Bitfinex are percentages of the total volume of the transaction. They are 0.20% for the “takers” and 0.10% for the “makers”. Comparing this with the offers provided by forex brokers is quite tricky. You would probably get a slightly lower spread at most brokerages, but you will be trading a Contract For Differance (CFD). This means you will only be speculation on the price of the asset, without actually owning it. We must reiterate, speculative trading of cryptocurrenies can be very risky.
When it comes to short-selling, there are additional borrowing fees, which vary based on Bitfinex’s internal platform’s peer-to-peer financing functionality. A key rule to note, is that when selling short, you can’t borrow more than 70% of your entire position.
Bitfinex provides its services via a web-based platform and a mobile app. Although it doesn’t come near the most popular currency trading platform, MetaTrader4 (MT4), the Bitfinex offering is decent. Charting is provided by TradingView, which means you are getting a solid package, with lots of technical analysis tools, such as indicators, Fibonacci tools, trend-lines and so on. Here is a preview of the BTC/USD chart, as provided by Bitfinex (click to zoom-in):
The order book at Bitfinex is also fully transparent. Although volumes occasionally go down, there is a lot of swift order movement and many transactions in the major currencies. Whether classical tape-reading works, as a predictive technique nowadays is a rather interesting topic in itself, but you can attempt to do it at Bitfinex. Here is a preview of the order book (click to zoom-in):
Methods of payment
Funding your account at Bitfinex can be done via multiple cryptocurrencies. Furthermore Bank Transfers are accepted, although they are temporary disabled. It is not clear when and if they will “old fashioned” payments will be accepted. Options such as Credit Card, PayPall or Skrill are also not available, which limits the ability to attract people who are new to the crypto-world.
Bitfinex is one of the major cryptocurrency exchanges. The 2016 hack was a major blow to the company. That being said, they managed to handle the situation as best they could. This is definitely a good exchange for forex traders, willing to venture into the cryptoverse, as the platform feels intuitive. On the other hand one would need to already have a crypto currency wallet in order to make a deposit in the first place. This is a major drawback for the “uninitiated”. Here are Bitfinex’s pros and cons:
|Reputable company, handled hacking well||Only accepts payments in crypto (currently)|
|High BTC liquidity||Does not accept US clients|
|Solid charting, by TradingView|
|Competitive commission structure|
