VipMex Crypto and Futures Contract Trading Platform Gives Away 346 USDT to Celebrate Launch

VipMex Crypto and Futures Contract Trading Platform Gives Away 346 USDT to Celebrate Launch
vipmex.com
A new trading platform called VipMex has entered the market, allowing users to invest in cryptos and futures contracts with ease.
About the Company
Hong Kong-based VipMex is a company specialized in providing all-inclusive financial investment options and management for crypto assets and futures.
The team behind VipMex is made up of many highly educated professionals with a background in various advanced technologies. Their main goal is to develop accessible futures and cryptocurrency options by establishing a secure investing environment which can be navigated by clients of all levels of experience.
This cryptocurrency exchange relies on a powerful trading system that serves as the basis of a comprehensive and strong trading environment. VipMex focuses on providing low cost and easy to use crypto investment alternatives that can be accessible to all users.
VipMex Risk Strategy
The VipMex exchange was built on providing exposure to cryptocurrency markets for all kinds of investors at competitive and low rates.
Usually, when the clients have opposing positions, let’s say one Bitcoin contract is long and the other Bitcoin contract short, both sides of the trade are covered, with the exchange making its profits from the fees of the trades.
If most clients trade in the same position, VipMex will hedge in the underlying market or derivates markets, meaning they might actually buy Bitcoin or long Bitcoin futures if the majority of clients take long positions on Bitcoin contracts. This allows the platform to pay out all its clients if their positions turn out to be correct.
In case of unforeseen market developments, the exchange will store a certain percentage of its profit in a Risk Reserve Fund to always pay out the revenues of their clients.
USDT Base Currency
On the VipMex crypto exchange, the Tether (USDT) stablecoin is used as the base currency, meaning that the exchange rates of the other digital assets are generally quoted against Tether. USDT is the most popular and used stablecoin in the crypto market, having its value pegged to that of the US dollar. The coin recently surpassed XRP and became the world’s third-largest crypto according to a market cap of $8.805.483.772. USDT is also the most traded crypto based on its 24-hour volume, surpassing even Bitcoin.
With the occasion of platform launch, VipMex is giving 346 USDT to users who register on the crypto exchange and perform trading activities.
Fees and Discount Bonus
VipMex users can withdraw USDT from their account without having to pay any fees. A one-time transaction fee which is 0.05% becoming the best cost-effective comparing with Binance, Huobi, SnapEx, OKEX etc. for each position opened.
The crypto exchange offers zero spread accounts, which have no difference between the bid and ask price. This allows traders to know their entry and exit levels when they open a position.
There are no slippage costs (the difference between the projected price of a trade and the price at which the trade is completed) and no clawback (take back money as a form of taxation).
Moreover, VipMex also introduced a system where users can gather bonus for missions or trading and then use these bonus to deduct their margin.
Multi-Currency Account
VipMex supports the trading of multiple digital assets and commodities from one single account. This means that users do not have to go and create multiple accounts to hold and manage different cryptos or futures. All trading can be done from one account, simplifying matters for investors who want a diverse trading portfolio.
In addition to cryptocurrencies, users can also trade using fiat by making deposits on the platform’s Over The Counter exchange. This way, those who are new to crypto and do not yet own the assets can still invest by using their fiat funds.
Up to 500x Leverage
VipMex users can engage in margin trading and leverage anywhere from 10x to 500x. While margin trading is riskier compared to other types of trades, it can bring higher rewards.
The trading platform incorporates a unique “close all” function. Also, in order to protect clients’ profitability and hedge against risk exposure, in certain extreme market conditions, VIPMEX might temporarily prevent clients from opening new positions in a single direction until it is safe to open trades on that position again.
Accurate Price Listing
VipMex displays its crypto prices by using a K-line weighted average based on the data sourced from 3 of the biggest crypto exchanges on the market, namely Binance (30%), OKEx (40%), and Huobi (30%). This is done in order to feature cryptocurrency prices in the most accurate way. Binance is the world’s first crypto exchange in terms of 24-hour trading volume, while OKEx is sixth.
VipMex is ready to help investors find easy crypto trading solutions, as well as futures contract options, and help them get the best profits by adopting risk-mitigating strategies.

I lost everything.

I lost everything.
I messed up really badly. More so than I ever had in my life. I lost all my crypto and fiat funds, and have no one to blame but myself. Throughout the entire bear market of 2018, I’ve been collecting as much BTC and ETH as I could. I fully believed in the tech, as well as the opportunity for financial freedom that was presented in front of me. I used the money from part time jobs (while studying at university full time) and a large portion of my student loans to buy crypto every month. Even as the bear market diminished the value of my portfolio, I kept on buying knowing that it would potentially pay off one day. I was in my last year of university and my thinking was that crypto at the very least could help me pay off my student loans. And for the past couple of months, everything seemed to be going according to plan. Crypto was booming literally just in time for my graduation.
That’s when I discovered Bitmex.
Within a month, my discovery of Bitmex managed to ruin my life. I started off with a small deposit of 0.01 BTC, and I managed to flip that in to 0.2 BTC within a week. I was euphoric. Then as quickly as I made it, I lost it all to one swift move by the market. So I made a new account thinking that I knew what I was doing this time around and deposited a slightly larger amount. Liquidated. I deposited again. Liquidated. It got to the point where my bank account had no money left to fund my Bitmex account and that’s where I made my biggest mistake. I decided to “borrow” funds from my BTC and ETH cold storage to try to recuperate everything I’ve lost so far on Bitmex. And as I now know, revenge trading never works. Today marked the end of my crypto career, all my alts were liquidated when BTC broke 9k and pretty much dumped right after.
I have now no more funds left to deposit and have lost all my crypto. Everything that I’ve been collecting during the bear market, just to have it taken away right before the bull market. I’ve lost a total of 1BTC worth of crypto, which may not seem like that much to some of you, but that was literally everything that I had. I have nothing left now. I can’t find someone to hire me with my god-damn useless degree. I have no way of paying off my student loans. I feel stuck. I feel scared. I feel angry that I screwed myself this hard. I’m absolutely freaking out right now as I’m typing this and I’m having thoughts of killing myself… because I really don’t think I can recover from this. I don’t know what to do.
If there’s anything that anyone can take away from this, it’s to not mess around with margin trading and leverage unless you really know what you’re doing. It’ll be the death of you. Literally.

EDIT: Thank you to everyone who gave advice, shared a story, or just left a positive message. I can’t reply to you all, but your support has been overwhelming and very helpful. I think after some time away, I’ll manage to be okay. I just need to find some time for myself and figure things out.

The MUST DO's and DONT's of Leverage/Margin Trading (Plus a Short Intro on Margin Trading)

The MUST DO's and DONT's of Leverage/Margin Trading (Plus a Short Intro on Margin Trading)

Let's quickly describe what trading using leverage means.
Let's say you have $100 in BTC and want it to grow in terms of SATs (small pieces of a BTC). You don't have money to buy more BTC but want to try to predict if the price will go up or down.
So you take that $100 and decide to trade using leverage, 1-100x. For this example I'll use 10x. If you are using 10x leverage your $100 gives you access to $1000 in trading $$. If the price of BTC is $8,000 and you go "long" because you expect the price to go up, you have a position worth $1000 in BTC now open 'long.'
Because you only 'own' 10% of the money you are using to buy/sell BTC if the price of BTC drops 10% you are liquidated (whole position lost). However, similarly if BTC goes up 10% your $100 becomes $200. Leverage can work very well in your favor or against it. For this example of BTC at $8,000 if BTC moves $800 in either direction you lose the whole position, or gain 100% (and all the small incremental %s in between). Once the position is ready to be closed you ALWAYS pick "limit" and enter a price, even if higher than the actual price because the fees for "market" orders are usually 5x the price.

NOW THE LIST of to DO's and DONT's of Leverage Trading
  1. ALWAYS USE LIMIT ORDERS, the fees for market orders are MUCH higher.
  2. ALWAYS set the stop limit (where it sells automatically) $2 away from your actual liquidation point, if liquidated the fees are MUCH higher, like $50 vs $5.
  3. PATIENCE is a virtue. If you enter a position and it goes the wrong direction for an hour, STOP watching it. Enter the position, the point of selling (limit order) if it goes UP or DOWN, and walk away. Your anxiety will NOT impact the price.
  4. Buy or go long on major dips into support, sell or short on major pumps into resistance.
  5. Fade what your "instinct" tells you to do. The whole world has that same 'instinct.'
  6. Understand 100x is basically gambling, 50x too, but they can provide immense returns (or losses).
  7. Long positions on BTC ALWAYS make more than short positions. This is because if you long BTC and the price goes up, you have more BTC at a higher price. If you short it, and it goes down, great now you have 2 BTC instead of 1 but the price is 30% less. You make more with 2 BTC when the price is 30% higher (in terms of USD).
  8. Emotionless. You will loose AND win trades. Understand what you risk you MAY loose also understand how to profit similarly.
  9. Stick to under 10x leverage unless you want a real gamble (it's exciting though).
  10. DM any questions!

People want FIAT on ramp, leverage/margin trading and staking on exange

can all these things be done in a decentralized exange like XSN?
Or it will always suffer the competition on these things if compared to centralized alternative like Binance?

If you use leverage to make a trade and it turns out bad do you owe the full value or just the lost margin?

My friend and I started getting into forex recently. I’ve been hesitant to use leverage, but my friend thinks that if he uses leverage and fails he’ll only owe the loss on his margin and not on the full value. I’m worried about his finances. Can someone explain leverage and the possible cons of using it?

Lot Size, Leverage And Margin - YouTube 5 Tips for Leverage & Margin in Trading Introduction to Margin and Leverage - YouTube Trading on leverage and margin Introduction to Leverage And Margin - YouTube

In leveraged trading, margin is capital invested by an investor and is essentially money paid to a bank, broker, or counterparty to open and maintain positions. Margin level is the ratio of margin to the total amount of contracts to be bought and sold, also known as leverage ratio or ratio. Margin level =1/ leverage ratio What is Leverage in Forex – Leverage Ratio Explained. Trading in margin bears enormous risks. But, it also has the potential for huge rewards. As a rule of thumb, the bigger the leverage is, the smaller the margin blocked for each trade. We explained earlier the inverted relationship that gives the leverage formula. Margin Trading Definition: Margin Trading is purchasing stocks without investing the full capital. The trades have a systematized strategy for purchasing stocks in future market without having the capital. Trading on leverage in a margin account contains a big dose of risk. If you haven’t properly calculated your money management strategy, you can easily wipe out your account and go bankrupt. Margin is the amount of collateral to cover any credit risks arising during your trading operations. Margin is expressed as the percentage of position size (e.g. 5% or 1%), and the only real reason for having funds in your trading account is to ensure sufficient margin. On a 1% margin, for instance, a position of $1,000,000 will require a deposit of $10,000.
