Exchange and Trading
Ethfinex is the world’s first hybrid decentralised exchange, allowing users to choose between trustless on-chain settlement, or high speed execution and professional APIs, whilst enjoying high liquidity in both cases. Users can trade a wide range of ERC20 tokens against ETH or USD. We also boast a suite of order types, advanced charting, and 3.3x leveraged margin trading thanks to our peer to peer funding market.
Remote Portals
These decentralised exchange portals will allow access to the Ethfinex order book to traders who do not wish to deposit their funds with Ethfinex. By using these portals, customers can have the same trustless experience as using a decentralised exchange, trusting only smart contracts with their funds rather than Ethfinex itself, but at the same time have access to the high liquidity of Ethfinex’s order books. Ethfinex provides one such portal here. Try it now.
Margin Trading
Ethfinex allows for users to trade with up to 3.3x leverage by receiving funding from the peer to peer margin funding platform. Users can enter an order to borrow the desired amount of funding at the rate and duration of their choice, or they can simply open a position and Ethfinex will take out funding for them at the best available rate at that time. For more information on our Margin Trading feature, please go to How It Works.
Marging Financing
The margin funding market provides a way to earn interest on Euro, Japanese Yen, US Dollar, and Ethereum by providing funding to traders wanting to trade with leverage. Users can offer funding at the 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 offers automatically upon expiry. For more information on our Margin Funding feature, please go to How It Works.
Analysis
Our professional discussion boards provide a community hub for analysis and discussion of ERC20 tokens. Ratings based on user consensus, the latest news, and expert opinions help filter out the quality projects and keep you informed about developments.
Discussion Boards
Post and read structured analysis and discussion about upcoming token listings or tradable tokens. Experts, and those in the community most familiar with each project, will be able to share their opinions and contribute to separating the wheat from the chaff. The discussion boards are split by token, and structured to encourage professional debate.
Open Venue
Any project launching an ERC20 token can set-up it’s own discussion board, to build a community and keep users up to date with their development progress. This means that all tokens have a fair chance to reach new users, not just those with large marketing budgets. Project admins can respond to questions, post updates, and apply to open their token listing to Ethfinex users.
Token Ratings
Every token will have a crowdsourced quality rating based on user consensus. These ratings will be across several dimensions including Whitepaper, Tech and Concept. Filtering and aiding discovery of extremely high quality tokens is becoming increasingly important as the volume of new tokens being launched grows exponentially.
Token Sales
Contribute directly to high quality token sales using the funds in your Ethfinex account. As well as being able to identify, track, and discuss upcoming token listings via the Ethfinex discussion boards, any tokens you receive after contributing to a token sale will then be immediately available for trading on Ethfinex.
Trusted Partners
Ethfinex has built a network of trusted partner organisations, such as SICOS and CoFound.it , who select, support and train teams before and during their crowdsales. Since our partners work with only the highest quality legally compliant tokens, Ethfinex can offer our users the ability to contribute directly to these sales, and afterwards to make the tokens immediately available for trading.
Guaranteed Contribution
Guaranteed contribution to certain token listings is available to Ethfinex users as part of a whitelist. You can opt to contribute using your Ethfinex balance in any currency, and it will be automatically converted to Ethereum to be sent to the contract during the conversion period.
Track and Identify
As well as making use of the information and ratings on the discussion boards, our token listing dashboard allows you to find highly rated projects and set alerts about their contribution periods. Never miss a sale, and pre-register to contribute from your Ethfinex balance.
Order Types
Bitfinex offers our users a suite of order types to give traders the tools they need for every scenario. We currently offer the following order types:
Limit
An order to buy/sell at a specified price or better.
Market
An order in which a buy or sell order to be executed immediately at current market prices.
Stop
An order to sell or close your position once the market reaches a certain price.
Trailing Stop
A stop order that can be set to execute once the market goes against you by a defined price, called the price difference. Trailing–stop sell orders are used to maximize and protect profit as a stock's price rises and limit losses when its price falls.
Fill or Kill
This type of order is a limit order that must be filled in its entirety or canceled (killed). The purpose of a fill or kill order is to ensure that a position is entered at a desired price.
One Cancels Other (OCO)
This option allows you to place a pair of orders stipulating that if one order is executed fully or partially, then the other order is automatically canceled. A one-cancels-the-other order combines a stop order with a limit order. This option allows you to place both take profit and stop loss targets for your position (only for limit orders).
Post Only
"Post Only" limit orders are orders that allow you to be sure to always pay the maker fee. When placed, a "Post Only" limit order is either inserted into the order book or cancelled (only for limit orders).
Hidden Order
A hidden order is an order which does not appear in the order book and thus doesn't influence other market participants. See the fees page for minimum size and fee applicable.

Nectar tokens
Nectar tokens (NEC) are given for free to token market makers in proportion to the volume of trades they participate in on the exchange. The tokens are issued on a 30 day basis according to trading volumes.
Owners of the tokens will be able to use them to claim loyalty rewards from the total monthly exchange fees, and advise on the future governance of Ethfinex. Initially the tokens will be majority owned by Ethfinex, but gradually as more tokens are issued the ownership of them will therefore become decentralised so that our customers will have a stake in Ethfinex.
