Free Trading

Free Trading

We get it. Fees are a drag (on returns, that is).

We’re excited to be the first crypto exchange to offer truly free trading* to all users, across all markets.

We do things differently here: no hidden markups, expensive staking requirements, or misleading spreads — and you can trade confidently knowing that you always retain full custody of your crypto.

Wondering how we can offer this?

We’d rather give free trading* to average users and charge professional traders. (Trades over $100,000/month still incur low fees.)

We believe that doing what’s good for users is good for us: more happy users → more growth → a better place to trade, for everyone.

We hope you’re as excited about this as we are.

About dYdX

dYdX is the developer of a leading decentralized exchange on a mission to build open, secure, and powerful financial products. dYdX runs on audited smart contracts on Ethereum, which eliminates the need to trust a central exchange while trading. We combine the security and transparency of a decentralized exchange, with the speed and usability of a centralized exchange.

*Trading and entering into perpetual contracts involves substantial financial and other risks. dYdX does not provide financial advice. “Free Trading” means that dYdX has removed fees related to placing orders for accounts with less than $100,000 of trading volume in the previous thirty days; other costs may still apply, including, but not limited to perpetual funding, depositing and withdrawing funds, and potential liquidation. For additional information, please review the dYdX Terms of Use.
