VeChain (VEN) Migration Notice Update August 28, 2018

In early July, Bitfinex announced full support for the VeChain VEN - VET token swap. In line with this, we are pleased to be able to communicate the start of the VeChain migration process.

To ensure a smooth and trouble-free migration for all our users, the token migration will be completed according to the following steps:

  • VEN deposits and withdrawals have been suspended as of 12:00 AM UTC, 28/08/18.

  • Trading in all VEN pairs (BTC, ETH & USD) will be suspended as of 11:00 AM UTC, 28/08/18. A VEN balance snapshot will be taken at this time.

  • The token migration will take place. Tokens will be converted in a ratio of 1:100(100 VET for every VEN).

  • Trading will reopen for VET against BTC, ETH & USD at approximately 15:00 PM UTC, 28/08/18. Deposits and withdrawals will be enabled in line with this.

 

Please note that deposits and withdrawals of VEN are to be suspended permanently following step 1 and Bitfinex will be unable to accept transactions in this token moving forward.

Fee Structure Update - August 1st, 2018 August 01, 2018

We are pleased to announce the addition of new fee tiers to Bitfinex, designed to reward traders and encourage the continuous addition of liquidity to maintain competitive markets across our platform. These additions are a further demonstration of our commitment to delivering the most innovative and rewarding experience for traders on Bitfinex.

The updated fee tiers are available here. Please note that the new fee tiers will be added to our existing fee schedule; fee tiers for 30 day volumes below 300,000,000 USD equivalent remain unaffected. The new fee tiers may require up to 18 hours to take effect. The updated fee change is not retroactive. At Bitfinex we take the integrity of our fee structure extremely seriously. No user, token, project, or employee receives special treatment on our platform and we do not offer undisclosed preferential fee discounts to inflate volumes. The integrity of our fee structure will always be of paramount importance, regardless of consequences associated with this approach. For a full overview of the updated fee schedule, please refer to the following post.

API Update - September 1st, 2018 July 29, 2018

Starting from September 1st, 2018, 00:00 UTC, Bitfinex will be implementing a series of changes to the way we manage WebSocket connections to our APIs.

As of September 1st, every WebSocket connection will have a limit of 50 subscriptions to market data feed channels (tickers, book, candles, trades, ...). We kindly ask all users to adapt their application setup accordingly to split subscriptions to channels on more WebSocket.

As an example, if you subscribe to all tickers, books, candles, trades channels on a single WebSocket connection, you'll receive

error:10305 (https://docs.bitfinex.com/v2/docs/ws-general#section-error-codes)

to notify the quota if the current socket is full. For users, this means handling multiple streams, or running multiple instances and spreading them over different pairs.

Implementing this API change results in quicker connections for all our API users, meaning quicker data feeds and optimised trading strategies.

For a full overview of the Bitfinex API documentation, refer to the following page:
