BitMEX is a cryptocurrency exchange that was founded by HDR Global Trading Limited in 2014. From that point on, the company has been registered in the Seychelles operating in Hong Kong.
The full name of BitMEX basically translates to Bitcoin Mercantile Exchange – and the exchange is now one of the largest Bitcoin trading platforms with over 35,000 BTC in daily trading volume and over 540,000 accesses monthly. The trading history, on the other hand, has crossed $34 million in Bitcoin ever since its inception.
What makes BitMEX special is the fact that the exchange only accepts deposits through Bitcoin which can be later used to purchase other cryptocurrencies. BitMEX also offers margin trading and is not regulated in any jurisdiction.
