Best BTC, ETH futures exchange. High liquidity. Also some slippage and rejected orders.

Perfect broker for BTC, ETH, XRP and other futures. I love the high liquidity of most major crypto pairs. Especially BTC and ETH.

Also I would like to say that slippage should get reduced, and trading engine should be upgraded to process faster and more orders, in order to avoid slippage and rejected orders. Then this review can get to a five (5) star rating.

Happy with their service!

The most liquid broker to trade Bitcoin and Ethereum futures. Withdrawals are done fast and i have never had a problem with them. Commissions are very cheap. I would give them 5 stars but every once in a while Bitmex servers experience overload which causes it to freeze for a few seconds. Overall a very good broker to trade Crypto futures
