ActiveTrader™ Fee Schedule

Last updated: June 30, 2022


Overview

Orders placed via our ActiveTrader interface (each, an “Order”) are subject to the rates on this schedule.

Gemini utilizes a maker-taker fee model for determining trading fees for all Orders. Liquidity-making Orders are charged different fees than liquidity-taking Orders. If you place an Order that is filled immediately, this Order takes liquidity from the marketplace and, therefore, you are considered a taker and will be charged a taker fee. If you place an Order that is not filled immediately, but instead rests on the order book, your Order adds liquidity to the marketplace and, therefore, you are considered a maker and will be charged a maker fee.

Your Order could be subject to both maker and taker fees. If you place an Order that is partially filled immediately, you will be charged a taker fee on the filled portion. The remainder of your Order will rest on the order book and will be charged a maker fee when it is filled.

ActiveTrader Fee Schedule

Your fee rate for every trading pair is determined by your gross trading volume in notional USD across all of Gemini’s continuous order books over a 30-calendar-day trailing window. Your fee rate will be recalculated every day at midnight UTC (7pm EST / 8pm EDT) and applied to all Orders going forward from that time.

The following rates only apply to your Orders placed via ActiveTrader. For information on rates for orders placed via other applications and interfaces, please see the Marketplace Fee Schedules section of our User Agreement.

Fee Calculation

We calculate fees as a fraction of the notional value of each trade (i.e., price × amount). Depending on the Order type, fees will be either deducted from the gross proceeds of a trade or charged to the account at the time a trade is executed. Any fees will be applied at the time an Order is placed. For partially filled Orders, only the executed portion is subject to trading fees.

Fee Denominations

Fees are charged in quote currency, or the second currency in the pair. Example: The transaction fee for BTC/USD will be charged in USD. Additionally, the transaction fee for ETH/BTC will be charged in BTC.
