Reminder – Scheduled Downtime for tomorrow, 14 July

Please be reminded that we will temporarily halt trading on the BitMEX platform tomorrow Thursday, 14 July 01:00 UTC to facilitate a minor upgrade to our database.

The system will continue in cancel-only mode from 01:00 UTC until 01:05 UTC before the upgrade takes place; during this time cancel order requests will be processed. From 01:05 UTC, any order actions will be rejected. Deposits made during the whole period will be queued for processing.

The system is expected to be online again in cancel-only mode from approximately 01:30 UTC. Continuous trading will recommence from approximately 01:35 UTC.

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

While this is a minor upgrade, the process might take longer depending on a number of factors. During the upgrade, relevant updates will be shared on our status page
