In KuCoin Futures trading, the following factors may influence the trading fee. Let's have a look!
Please click the VIP Program tab on the bottom of the official website, or click here, to view your current VIP level and the corresponding trading fee rate for different VIP levels.
A higher VIP level enjoys a lower trading fee rate, and would probably enjoy trading fee rebates.
Notice: For API users who are already VIP on other platforms, please contact email@example.com to apply for the preferential rate of the corresponding VIP level on KuCoin.
KuCoin uses a taker - maker fee model to determine the different trading fees. Please click here to know more about Maker and Taker.
When you place an order and it is executed immediately(including market order, hidden order and iceberg order), you are considered as a Taker and will pay a taker fee.
When you place a limit order or an order which is not immediately matched to enter a buy or sell order, you are considered as a Maker and will pay a maker fee.
