Bitfinex offers the most liquid exchange in the world, allowing users to easily exchange USD/BTC, USD/LTC, and LTC/BTC with minimal slippage. We also boast a suite of order types to help traders take advantage of every situation.
Bitfinex allows for users to trade with up to 3.3x leverage by taking out a swap from the peer to peer swaps market. Users can enter an order to borrow the desired amount of funds at rate and duration of their choice, or they can simply open a position and Bitfinex will take out a swap for them at the best available rate at that time.

The swaps market provides anyone a low-risk way to earn interest on their USD, BTC, and LTC, by providing swaps to the users wanting to trade with leverage. Users can offer swaps at a rate and duration of their choice, or they can simply lend at the FRR (Flash Return Rate). In addition users can use our Auto-Renew feature to renew their swaps automatically upon expiry.
