BTSE Important Update

Dear BTSE Community,

We are excited to announce the launch of our new Price Protection Mechanism, a feature designed to safeguard our users and enhance overall trading security.

 

What is the Price Protection Mechanism?

 

The Price Protection Mechanism is a robust tool created to protect users against inadvertent price errors and prevent abnormal trading activities that could adversely affect our valued community. Our primary objective is to shield users from sudden and potentially harmful price fluctuations, ensuring a secure and stable trading environment.

 

Temporary Restrictions for Market Stability

 

While we aim to provide seamless trading experiences, in extreme cases, the Price Protection Mechanism might necessitate temporary restrictions on placing orders. This rare occurrence is a vital step in maintaining market stability and safeguarding users from extreme volatility.

 

Understanding the Parameters: Price Protection Ratio and Price Cap/Floor Ratio

 

The Price Protection Mechanism operates on two key parameters:

Price Protection Ratio: This parameter ensures that price errors are kept in check, maintaining a fair and transparent trading landscape.

Price Cap/Floor Ratio: Setting both upper and lower limits on prices, this ratio contributes to stabilizing the market and protecting users from drastic fluctuations.

Let’s take an example to better understand this. Assume the current market price of BTC is 40,000 USDT. The Price Protection Ratio for BTC is 5%, and the Price Cap/Floor Ratio is 50%.

For Buy Orders:

  1. The maximum price at which users can buy is capped at 42,000 USDT, calculated as 40,000 × (1 + 5%) = 42,000.
  2. The minimum price for placing buy orders is set at 20,000 USDT, calculated as 40,000 × (1 – 50%) = 20,000.

For Sell Orders:

  1. The minimum selling price is set at 38,000 USDT, calculated as 40,000 × (1 – 5%) = 38,000.
  2. The maximum price for placing sell orders is capped at 60,000 USDT, calculated as 40,000 × (1 + 50%) = 60,000.

 

Ensuring Order Validity

 

It’s crucial to note that the Price Protection Mechanism’s limits extend to various order types, including stop limit orders, stop market orders, take profit limit orders, and take profit market orders. Any orders falling outside these specified limits may be deemed invalid.

At BTSE, we are committed to continually enhancing your trading experience, and we’re confident that this new feature will contribute to a more secure and reliable trading environment.

Stay tuned for more updates, and happy trading!

Warm regards,

The BTSE Team
