BitMEX adds spot and crypto derivatives trading to mobile app
“Our new app dramatically expands our mobile presence and makes the BitMEX trading experience more accessible than ever.”
BitMEX has enhanced its mobile app by introducing the “Trade” section to provide access to spot and crypto derivatives trading.
The “Trade” section provides users with tools to execute trades, track open positions, and monitor 24/7 price movements of derivative contracts and spot pairs on the go.
Along with the new “Trade” section, the upgraded mobile app gives customers the ability to buy, sell, and convert crypto already included in the Lite version.
In the near future, the BitMEX Mobile app will see new additions including biometric login or the ability to stake BMEX from the app, the cryptocurrency exchange has announced.
Alexander Höptner, CEO of BitMEX, said, “Our new app significantly expands our mobile presence and makes the BitMEX trading experience more accessible than ever. We designed the app with our community in mind and pride ourselves on delivering the key BitMEX features they expect in a convenient mobile form.
BitMEX opened the spot exchange in May and hit $24 million in trading volumes ten days after launch. The company said there is significant demand from retail and institutional investors to trade spot cryptocurrencies, with growing interest from their existing customer base in the various coins they offer in the derivatives market.
At launch, BitMEX Spot Exchange supports seven cryptocurrency pairs, including Bitcoin (XBT), Ethereum (ETH), Chainlink (LINK), Uniswap (UNI), Polygon (MATIC), Axie Infinity (AXS) and ApeCoin (APE). All of these coins are being traded against Tether (USDT), and more pairs are expected to be listed shortly on the largest margined coin swap exchange.

Patrick Smith, a defense attorney for Delo, said the BitMEX co-founder was involved in a “criminal compliance failure” but personally banned hundreds of US users.
