Bitfinex has been busy updating the platform and listing some important coins in the spot and margin trading. The new version of the platform v15.17 comes with some changes in various aspects, from UI and UX to legal and bug fixes.
The new features in Bitfinex v15.17 include some critical parts for traders that will improve their experience in the platform. The annual Percentage Rate (APR) column to Funding tickers is one of the new features. Other additions include Flash Return Rate and an improved default ticker icon.
Bitfinex has fixed some minor bugs in the main platform and Bitfinex Pulse. The bugs fixed in the main platform are:
- Fixed edge cases for whitelisted payment ID
- Enabled colon-separated non-payment ID addresses on withdrawal whitelist
- Fixed overflow for Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) list
- Credit card deposit address for Tether (USDt)
- Fixed overflow for the period selector
Bitfinex has added some new tokens to its spot and margin trading in the past days. The most recent one is Cardano (ADA), which is added to the margin trading platform from today.
“Margin trading enables traders to borrow funds to increase leverage, offering the potential for greater profits than in traditional trading. Still, the potential for greater rewards also comes with higher levels of risk, particularly given the volatility of digital assets,” according to Bitfinex. ADA has been listed on the spot trading platform in early August. Traders can now trade ADA in (ADA/USD) and (ADA/USDt) margin pairs.
Tron (TRX) is another new listing in Bitfinex margin trading.
“From 02/09/20 at 11:00 AM UTC, (TRX/USD) pair can be traded with a maximum leverage of 3.3x, initial equity of 30%, and a maintenance margin of 15%. TRX can also be held as collateral for margin trading with an initial haircut of 90%, which can change over time,” according to Bitfinex.
The exchange added this token yesterday that follows other popular coins like Chainlink (LINK) and Polkadot (DOT).
The only spot trading addition to Bitfinex has been Kusama (KSM), which was listed on August 31st. Thus token is now tradable in KSM/USD and KSM/USDt pairs.
