The new exchange is believed to be perfect for crypto traders not only owing to the transaction speed but also lower fees. Speaking about trading fees, it is necessary to highlight that as for so-called “maker” fees, they will be 0% while “taker” fees will be 0.2%. XRP withdrawals will be free of charge as well as crypto deposits. For withdrawals of other cryptocurrencies than XRP, the exchange will introduce standard network fees.

Taking into consideration the level of competition in the crypto community, if new projects want to survive it is necessary to find something unique to offer, and DCEX has already chosen its way to stand out from the crowd.
