Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], May 18 (ANI/PR Newswire): BitMEX, one of the world's largest crypto trading platforms, has announced the launch of the BitMEX Spot Exchange for retail and institutional traders as the company looks to expand its product offering. The launch comes as the company looks to become a top ten global spot exchange following the success of its derivatives offer.

The launch of the BitMEX Spot Exchange represents a significant step for BitMEX's strategy to offer cutting-edge products to crypto traders in India. The exchange supports seven pairs of cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin (XBT), Ethereum (ETH), Chainlink (LINK), Uniswap (UNI), Polygon (MATIC), Axie Infinity (AXS) and ApeCoin (APE), all against Tether (USDT).

Users are able to access the Spot by placing coin conversion request-for-quotes (RFQs), through Central Limit Order Books and taking advantage of API trading, as well as on the go with BitMEX Lite when Spot is launched in the mobile app in the next few weeks.

It was in response to this increasing demand from the user base and to changing market conditions that BitMEX decided last year to build its own fully integrated Spot Exchange to complement the suite of products it currently offers. Following the Beyond Derivatives strategy, BitMEX Spot that launched today, aims to attract and introduce new retail and institutional clients to the platform and will allow users to grow in sophistication when trading with crypto.

Alexander Hopner, Chief Executive Officer of BitMEX, said:

"Last year, we introduced our Beyond Derivatives strategy, and the launch of BitMEX Spot is the centrepiece of this vision. Today, BitMEX is one step closer to providing our users with a full crypto ecosystem to buy, sell, and trade their favourite digital assets. We will not rest as we aim to deliver more features, more trading pairs, and more ways for our clients to take part in the crypto revolution."

BitMEX Spot will ultimately allow users to transact between fiat currencies and crypto assets as well as crypto-to-crypto trading pairs. While BitMEX continues to build out the diversity of its derivatives products, the addition of Spot allows the company to attract new users attracted to the full ecosystem now available on the platform.

BitMEX is an iconic trading platform that offers access to crypto-products in the global digital asset financial markets. BitMEX allows users to buy, deposit, withdraw, convert, and trade with cryptocurrencies (XBT, ETH, and USDT, as well as LINK, UNI, MATIC, AXS and APE as part of the Spot exchange launch), and it currently supports purchases with 30+ fiat currencies.

BitMEX has been at the forefront of crypto exchanges since 2014, revolutionising the industry with the invention of the perpetual swap, the most traded crypto product in history, and has continued to relentlessly innovate since then. BitMEX is owned by HDR Global Trading Limited. To learn more about BitMEX, our vision, growing team, and the road ahead, please follow us on Twitter, Telegram, and the BitMEX Blog.
