BitMEX is a cryptocurrency exchange that has been a long-standing player in the crypto space. Originally, it began as a margin trading platform and has since expanded its offerings to include a spot trading platform. Despite encountering a few technical hiccups in the past, BitMEX remains a favorite among traders for its user-friendly interface and transparent pricing structure.
One notable feature of BitMEX is its mobile app, which facilitates trading while on the go, catering to the needs of modern traders. What sets BitMEX apart from many other exchanges is its unique offering of 100x leverage.

This feature can be appealing to traders seeking the potential for amplified gains, although it also carries increased risk due to the magnified exposure to market fluctuations.
