During the past weeks, many major exchanges have experienced issues with their banking relationships, and one sent incorrect prices. These prices caused liquidations on multiple platforms, including BitMEX. Affected traders were reimbursed from BitMEX funds.
We intend for the BitMEX index to accurately represent asset prices on functioning, liquid exchanges. Unfortunately, the landscape is shifting quickly. We expect more index changes to come as exchanges lose and regain their banking relationships.
In preparation for this, we have made changes to how BitMEX indices are calculated.
Please read the BitMEX blog post New Protections for BitMEX Indices for more details.
