Updates to Rate Limits

As part of our continuous improvements to the BitMEX platform, we have increased the default rate limits as follows:

  • Request Rate Limits when authenticated
    • Previously 60 requests per minute on all routes
    • Now 120 requests per minute on all routes
    • Unauthenticated limit remains 30 requests per minute
  • Websocket Connection Rate Limits
    • Previously 40 connections per hour
    • Now 60 connections per hour

Second layer burst rate limits for specific routes will remain unchanged at a rate of 10 requests per second.
