Learn More About Bittrex Credits

What are Bittrex Credits? 

Bittrex Credits is a customer rewards program enabling users to earn commission-free trades by trading on Bittrex Global. 

How can I sign up? 

By trading on Bittrex Global, you automatically earn Bittrex Credits.  As we said, it is a reward program!  We also will do promotions from time to time where we will airdrop Bittrex Credits to our loyal customers. 

How can I earn Bittrex Credits? 

You earn Bittrex Credits based on the commissions you pay on your trades. Bittrex Credits are transferred into your account a few moments after your order is closed. 

How can I spend credits? 

You may redeem Bittrex Credits for a commission-free trade once you accumulate enough. An option to do so appears automatically in the trade confirmation dialog box.  

How much is a credit worth? 

One Bittrex Credit is worth $0.01 (USD) towards trading commissions. To pay trading commissions on an order with Bittrex Credits, users need sufficient credits to cover the entire commission for the order. The current market rate listed by Bittrex Global for currencies other than USD determines the value of a Bittrex  Credit in non-USD markets (BTC for example). Bittrex Credits cannot be redeemed other than for trading commissions on the Bittrex Global platform, cannot be removed from the Bittrex Global platform and have no cash value. 

How do I know how many Bittrex Credits I have? 

Your credits balance be viewed on the "Holdings" page.

What if I cancel my order after choosing to pay with Bittrex Credits? 

Bittrex Global returns Bittrex Credits in proportion to the unfilled amount of the order at the time of cancellation. The Bittrex Credits will be added back to your account a few moments after your cancellation is processed.  

Can I use Bittrex Credits from the API? 

You can use Bittrex Credits when placing orders from the v3 API by including "UseAwards": true in the request body. Note that the order will fail if you do not have sufficient Bittrex Credits available. You can get your current Bittrex Credits balance by querying any of the balance APIs and looking for BTXCRD. 

Do Bittrex Credits ever expire?

Yes.  For certain promotions where Bittrex Global airdrops credits, there is normally a 30-day expiration period from the date of the airdrop.  Bittrex Credits that are earned by making trades will expire if a user is inactive for a period of one year.  Please see our terms of service for more information.  

*At this time Bittrex Credits are unable to be used while trading on the mobile app
