Huobi, one of the largest cryptocurrency derivatives exchanges, will extend the promotion period of its Tether-margined swaps transaction fee until the end of February to celebrate the success of its recently introduced product.
Its VIP users will be able to enjoy preferential rates that are shown in the table below.
Tier-7 traders (as displayed above) will be able to have a maker fee of just -0.025 percent coupled with a 0.026 percent take fee.
All VIP market makers are charged negative fees, while normal makes and take fees are 0.02 and 0.04 percent, respectively.
Lowering the VIP threshold
With the launch of USDT-margined swaps, Huobi has significantly lowered the threshold for qualifying as a VIP user.
All qualified participants who trade Tether-margined swaps can join the lowest tiers with only $30,000 worth as assets in their account. It worth mentioning that Huobi users have independent accounts for futures, swaps, and options trading.
Unlike competing platforms that require a trading volume of up to 250 BTC (around $95 million) to get VIP status, Huobi only requires 25 million, which is much more friendly in this bull market. Achieving the highest level (VIP 7) will only require $0.5 billion worth of 30-day trading volume.
Trading on another exchange? You can still become a VIP trader on Huobi
There is also another way to get a preferential fee rate. Huobi Futures now allows VIP traders from competing platforms to enjoy lower fee rates by providing certificates of VIP level from other exchanges.
For instance, if a certain trader’s VIP level on a rivaling exchange is 5, he or she can get a level of VIP 4-6 on Huobi Futures and enjoy a maker fee rebate of up to 0.023%.
Becoming a VIP to enjoy excellent liquidity and services

Back in March, Huobi launched coin-margined swaps that are denominated and settled in cryptocurrencies.

Huobi rolled out its USDT-margined swaps back in October to capitalize on the growing demand for stable coin-margined derivatives. Launched on Oct. 26, its trading volume has grown rapidly with its cumulative trading amount exceeding $177.8 billion in just two months.
