What is better than low fees? There is no fee. Gate.io is excited to announce Zero trading fees on most spot and contract market trading pairs. The no-fee structure was introduced in two phases First on September 16, 2022 (UTC), and then September 20, 2022 (UTC), for spot and other markets, respectively.
After a groundbreaking year for the exchange, this radical change in fees is an ambitious step to give back to the crypto community. Removing fees on this scale is unmatched by any other mainstream exchange, making Gate.io the industry’s most cost-effective platform for crypto trading.
The Zero-Fee Breakdown
As a gesture of goodwill to millions of users worldwide, maker and taker fees have been completely removed from all spot market USD, BTC and ETH quote currency trading pairs and BTC/USDT as of September 16 (UTC). From 20 September 10:00 (UTC), all spot ETF pairs, USD-M and BTC-M perpetual futures pairs and USDT-M and BTC-M delivery futures pairs will have no fees.
USD-pegged stablecoins such as USDC, TUSD, PAX, BUSD and HUSD are denominated in USD and can be traded as USD spot pairs with no conversion required and no fees. Since USD-pegged stablecoins are the most traded stablecoins on the market, no fees help make trading much cheaper. This reduced fee will remain indefinitely until further notice.
Join the crypto community
The crypto market has been quite sluggish so far this year, so Gate.io is lending a hand to users so they can weather the storm together.
Recently though, Ethereum’s merger has managed to pique the interest of its supporters and the entire crypto community. The ability to trade ETH for free will support the Ethereum community and, by extension, its thriving ecosystem. And regardless of the ongoing bear market, Bitcoin still stands as the most traded digital asset by a wide margin. Making BTC a no-fee asset helps simplify the trading experience for millions of users.
