Chief Compliance Officer
We believe that the future of crypto will belong to platforms that invest in compliance, have responsible KYC policies, and earn their users’ trust.
As the largest crypto derivatives exchange with a fully verified customer base, this is what BitMEX stands for. Here’s what we’ve done lately to back it up.
Trust and Transparency are important to BitMEX because BitMEX believes that every user deserves safe, secure, and fair markets.
Under the BitMEX Terms of Service, users are prohibited from being involved in or initiating any form of market manipulation.
This guidance clarifies some of the behaviours that BitMEX considers would constitute market manipulation (but is not an exhaustive list).
Surveillance is undertaken by BitMEX on all trading activities to detect and mitigate any abusive behaviors.
If BitMEX discovers any potential market manipulation, BitMEX will take further action. These actions may result in enquiries and warnings, and may ultimately lead to banning of accounts in severe or repetitive cases.
To ensure an equitable trading environment, BitMEX monitors for signs of market abuse. BitMEX considers market abuse as including the following behaviours:
A type of trading that occurs on the basis of inside information. This information is of a precise nature about any product being traded which has not been made public.
A type of trading in which one person accommodates another by entering into a non-competitive purchase or sale order. Accommodation trades often happen when two persons are participating in off-market trading e.g. pre-arranged trades.
A type of trading which gives a false impression of a price move or the liquidity of any product being traded. A few common examples are wash trades, spoofing, layering, and quote stuffing.
When a person tries to move the price of a product in a particular direction by giving false information using electronic or other media.
