Trade8 Features

Bitcoin Only

You don't have to deal with a dozen different assets in a dozen different wallets. On Trade8, deposits and withdrawals are made in BTC only. Since we don't have to deal with fiat money, everything is faster and cheaper.

0 Fees

There are 0 fees for trades, deposits, and withdrawals. On Trade8, your total cost of trading is the market spread. Compare that to a crypto exchange which charges the spread plus a fee.

High Liquidity (No Slippage)

When you submit an order on Trade8, you don't have to worry about it being executed partially or at another price due to lack of liquidity or slippage. The price you submit your order at is the price your order is fully executed at.

Long and Short

Trade8 lets you short the markets so you can profit from falling prices, too.


Leverage allows you to multiply your buying power, and hence your profits and losses. Trade8 lets you adjust the leverage on each trade you submit, up to 100x on select markets. You always have the option to trade without leverage by selecting 1x leverage.

Advanced Risk Management

Trade with confidence by easily setting take-profit and stop-loss that limit your risk and execute at flawlessly at the prevailing market price.

Practice Trading

Trade in demo mode, which works exactly like the real thing, except your balance is fictional. It's a good opportunity to discover the platform if you're new, or to test out your trading strategies. You get 10 BTC in demo funds initially that you can refill indefinitely.


We're the first derivatives platform to publish our price sources and spread calculation methods. Additionally, our Market Maker program lets anyone compete to provide quotes for our traders, resulting in industry leading spreads and liquidity.
