New Year, new goals, and new resolutions. Now is time to refresh my dose of Bityard and dive into the platform to see what has changed or improved since my last visit.
I will start with a short summary, which will be the framework of my experience. Bityard is the world-leading cryptocurrency derivatives exchange, based in Singapore. The company was founded in 2019, is fully regulated and compliant with international laws, with the main activity in cryptocurrency contracts with leverage and derivatives exchange.
I remember clearly how the front page impressed me with a strong message wrapped in simplicity “The World’s Leading Cryptocurrency Derivatives Exchange”. If most exchanges are available in English and Chinese, Bityard is available in nine different languages.
As any top company, Bityard is well updated on Linkedin, with a well maintained and fresh account. The Overview and People sections are well updated, and 8 employees can be researched, including their studies and skills.
Moving back to the website, I like that the system allows users to log in using either their username or mobile number. One of the many things I love at Bityard is puzzle verification, replacing the ancient captcha. Not more than a month ago, Captcha had a major issue, and users couldn’t log on to the platforms using this living fossil verification.
Contract trading is the method that of trading that aims to gain profit from market volatility. Is quicker than holding assets but the risk involved with contract trading is higher. The contract allows the user to forecast if the price will go up or down. Contract trading is different from spot trading because the trading instrument called contract allows the investor to trade on the price movement of the asset or physical commodity, at a future date or price. It involves leverage, and traders are not buying or selling the asset, only speculating the price. There are two available options, cryptocurrency contracts, and derivatives, where the Bityard trading fee is only 0.05%, lower than the industry average. The Crypto Contract layout makes it easier for traders to select crypto contracts and gain profit depending on the market.
The Derivatives Contract tab offers leveraged trading options and allows traders to select and predict the price movement for precious metals, shares, bonds, and even natural gas. On the right side of the interface, users can swap between Live and Demo, if they feel the need to practice before using real funds. The leverage for derivatives is up to 200x and users can buy or sell when the price is right.
Spot trading allows users to buy and sell cryptocurrencies directly with other traders, transactions that can be settled instantly. You can use the coins and tokens from the exchange account to buy new coins or tokens, and the order matching and trade settlement is done automatically and at high speed by the trading engine. The order must be matched by another user, which will accept the current offer. As a small inconvenience, the only available pairing is Tether (USDT).
The Bityard Copy Trade function makes trading easier, allowing users to find and follow professional traders. The Copy Trade tool allows everyone to mirror and mimic the professional traders’ strategy. When mirroring the strategy, the trader is in control of the process while the one who copies the strategy can lose or earn money as a result of the trader’s actions. Bityard constantly checks the trader history data, ensuring that the traders in the system are qualified for other users to follow their investment strategies. The page looks much better than I remember and a new trader checklist was added, in order to simplify the search of top traders. Users can select the style, the profit rate, and trading days, and the list of traders matching the criteria will show up.
The Daily Mining will help users to earn BYD, a platform token offered by Bityard. The prospector-like game mines small amounts of crypto from this mountain landscape, which then is converted in bonus USDT. The bonus will be automatically deducted when placing an order or used to deduct trading fees. BYD is my long-lasting asset, and all 15.25 are used for mining. Up to date, I mined 4 USDT as contract rewards and 2.05 USDT as contract bonus.
