September 2023 in Review

30 days has September – and we were busy for all of them.

The highlight? TOKEN2049 where many asked, “What bear market?” – commentary that also ran through the conversations our team on the ground had with clients, community members, and more. 

Needless to say, it was a packed week. You’ll find our key takeaways – the BitMEX take on TOKEN2049 if you will – in one read here.

Conference aside, our team rolled out new derivatives products, contracts, offers, and more. For all that happened in September… or is about to happen, read on.

TL;DR? Updates

New product types and platform features that we’ve rolled out in response to trader feedback. As well as current offers for our users to leverage. 

  • Prediction Markets is live. Our new crypto derivative allows you to call the outcome of real-life events, such as the recovery rate of FTX customer claims and the future of Bitcoin ETFs (know more). 
  • Manage multiple trading strategies. With Sub Accounts, users can now separate their funds and trading strategies (know more).
  • Our Legacy Maker rebate is back. A move that means you get 2bps for trading any USDT-margined contract on our platform (know more).
