MoonXBT, a Cayman Islands-based crypto social trading platform, is implementing a zero-fee policy on multiple trading pairs for the spot market until further notice, it said today in a news release.
The zero-fee approach follows that of some major exchanges, including Binance.
The move is necessary to lessen the burden on retail investors amid a bear market, MoonXBT said, adding that it is one of the few mid-sized crypto exchanges to institute a zero-fee policy in sync with major players.
MoonXBT has eliminated transaction fees for some bitcoin trading pairs, as well as for ETH/USDT, BNB/USDT, ADA/USDT and XRP/USDT, it said.
It may add more trading pairs to the no-fee list in the future, based on how its users react.
Users will have zero fees for both maker and taker orders, without trading volume requirements or other pre-conditions, the company said.
