Bitget’s Futures Fee Calculations

The futures fee on Bitget is calculated based on the product type and whether the trader is a Maker or a Taker. Before we delve into the formula, let’s discuss the Maker and Taker concepts.

1. What are Maker and Taker?

Markets are made up of makers and takers. An exchange needs both Maker and Taker to keep it running.

Let’s put it simply this way:

– Makers provide liquidity by creating a market for a token on the exchange.

– Takers remove liquidity by fulfilling open orders.

You are a Maker if you create buying or selling orders that aren’t carried out immediately, you wait for orders to be filled (e.g., “sell BTC when the price hits $100k”). Hence, by playing the Maker role, you create liquidity for the exchange – meaning it’s easier for others to buy or sell when the condition meets. For this reason, the exchange will reward makers with lower transaction fees.

On the other hand, you are a Taker if you fill someone else’s orders. You make use of the liquidity (that created by the Makers) to easily buy or sell assets instantly. By playing the Taker role and using the liquidity, you often pay a higher transaction fee.

2. Futures transaction fee formula on Bitget

Transaction fee = Order value x Fee rate

Order value = (Number of contracts x Price)

For example: 

Trader A purchases 1 BTCUSDT futures contract with a market order. Trader B sells 1 BTCUSDT futures contract with a limit order. If the transaction price is 40,000 USDT, then:

Taker fee of Trader A = 1 × 40,000 × 0.06% = 24 USDT

Maker fee of Trader B = 1 × 40,000 × 0.02% = 8 USDT
