Mainnet Temporary Downtime Rescheduled to 12 August for Upgrades to Operating System

Please note that the previously announced platform downtime originally scheduled for 29 July has been postponed to 12 August at 02:15 UTC.

During this time, we will temporarily halt trading on the BitMEX platform to facilitate a major upgrade to our operating system. From this time, any order actions will be rejected. Deposits made will be queued for processing.

The system will be online again in cancel-only mode from approximately 03:10 UTC. Order cancel requests and deposits will be processed normally. Continuous trading will recommence from approximately 03:15 UTC.

From the halt of trading until continuous trading resumes, there will be no Mark Price updates and hence no liquidations.

Please see the below table for a summary:
