Get up to 5x leverage on BTC-USD

Silvia Chen

Ever since we launched the Exchange back in 2019, one of the most commonly-requested features is margin trading. I’m pleased to announce today that we’re launching margin — with up to 5x leverage — to users in over 150 countries.

I’m particularly pleased that we’re able to provide fees as low as .12% daily (.02% every four hours) on open margin positions, making Blockchain.com’s Exchange margin rates among the lowest and most competitive in the industry.

What is margin trading?

Margin trading allows you to increase your potential for profit through leverage, giving you increased buying and selling power on each trade.

For example, if a trader wants to purchase $1,000 worth of Bitcoin on the BTC-USD pair with 5X leverage, they’ll only need $200 in either BTC or USD as collateral in the account to have a full position worth $1,000. Delivering flexibility with funding management, users can use either a base or counter currency to open margin positions. Margin trading also allows users the ability to diversify trading portfolios since they don’t need to have the entire trade balance to enter into a margin position.

Before trading with leverage, it’s important to remember that while you may have the possibility of higher gains, there is also greater risk inherent to leveraged trades in crypto. The bottom line, make sure you understand the mechanics of margin trading before you get started.

We pulled together some resources in our Support Center.

Who is eligible to trade with margin?

Margin trading is currently supported for Gold-verified users but is not currently available for users in the US, UK, Canada, Japan, Germany, Austria, Italy, France, The Netherlands and select other countries. The product currently supports the BTC/USD trading pair.
