Today’s the day. The TRON coin has arrived at the BitMEX platform.
The launch of TRC-20 support means that users can now buy, convert, deposit, withdraw, and trade TRON too.
Here’s a deeper look at what you’ll be able to do the next time you log in to BitMEX Mobile or Web:
If you haven’t yet created a BitMEX account, you can do so here.
Trade TRON (TRX)
The TRX/USDT spot trading pair is now live and ready to trade on BitMEX Spot, in addition to XBT/USDT, ETH/USDT, APE/USDT, UNI/USDT, MATIC/USDT, LINK/USDT, and AXS/USDT.
To trade TRON simply select the TRX trading pair from the ‘Spot Pairs’ section of our spot exchange interface. You’ll then be able to place limit or market orders on the selected spot pair:
- Limit order: This order type lets users prepare spot trades in advance. Placing a limit order allows traders to set their own price to buy or sell crypto. If the market reaches the limit price, the trader’s order will be executed.
- Example: If the current market price for 1 TRX is 0.06 USDT, and you want to buy 100 TRX when the price drops to 0.05 USDT, you can place a limit order.
- Instructions: Select ‘LIMIT’, enter 0.05 in the ‘Price’ field, and enter 100 in the ‘Amount’ field. Click the ‘BUY TRX’ button to place the limit order.
- Market order: A market order is an order that is executed immediately at current market prices. Traders use this order type when they want to complete their order as quickly as possible. Traders who create market orders will not need to enter in a price.
- Example: If 1 TRX costs 0.065 USDT, and you wish to buy 100 TRX immediately, you can place a market order.
- Instructions: Select ‘MARKET’, enter 100 in the ‘Amount’ field, review the approximated USDT amount presented in the ‘Order Value’ field, and then click ‘Buy TRX’ to place your market order.
