Frequently asked questions

Get to know everything regarding crypto withdrawals from BitMEX in the frequently asked questions section below. 

BitMEX is one of the biggest centralized cryptocurrency exchanges. The exchange was founded in 2014 by Arthur Hayes, Ben Delo, and Samuel Reed. The exchange mainly focuses on cryptocurrency derivatives, futures, and perpetual option contracts. It allows digital asset traders to buy, sell, and speculate on cryptocurrencies with up to 1:100 leverage and offers option traders crypto-related option contracts without an expiry date. According to the time of writing this post, BitMEX supports 18 digital assets, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin, and Shiba Inu.

The key differences between BitMEX and Zengo are that Zengo is a non-custodial cryptocurrency wallet app that also supports access to Web3, Metaverse gaming, and decentralized finance features, whilst BitMEX is primarily a leveraged trading-focused centralized cryptocurrency exchange.

As of writing this post, BitMEX doesn’t charge any withdrawal fees on Bitcoin withdrawals but does charge tiered Tether withdrawal fees, which can be found here

BitMEX allows its users to withdraw up to 0.5 BTC per hour. Its so-called risk-weighted Accelerated Withdrawals allow traders to benefit from faster-than-usual Bitcoin withdrawals compared to other cryptocurrency exchanges. For larger withdrawals or withdrawals that require additional security screening, they apply a once-per-day Bitcoin withdrawal process. You can read more about BitMEX’s withdrawal limits here.

Confirmed Bitcoin withdrawals that are eligible for acceleration are paid out on an hourly basis nowadays. BitMEX used to process all withdrawals manually at 13:00 UTC, but that is now no longer the case.

The most common withdrawal problem that can occur when using BitMEX is that withdrawal acceleration is handled on a first-come, first-served basis, meaning that you may have to wait longer than usual for your withdrawal to come through. It can also happen that BitMEX’s funds in its hot wallet are depleted, in which case you will also need to wait longer than usual. 

According to what we could find online, you cannot directly withdraw to fiat on the BitMEX platform. As a result, you will have to use an external wallet. 

Here’s how you can do it using the Zengo wallet app: You withdraw crypto to fiat on BitMEX by hovering over your wallet and tapping the “Withdraw” button, followed by selecting Bitcoin or Tether, and sending it to your corresponding Zengo wallet address. Once you’ve done this, you can keep your digital assets in your Zengo wallet or sell them for fiat currencies using the “Sell” feature within the Zengo wallet app.
