Back in 2017, as experienced professional Wall Street traders and investors, Jack Tao and other founding members of Phemex.com identified a lack of professionalism, trustworthiness, and customer support within the crypto industry. In the following two years, the number of users engaging in cryptocurrency trading increased significantly. Nevertheless, existing exchanges showed little to no improvement.
Realizing the seriousness of the problem, the team left Wall Street and founded Phemex in the summer of 2019. They then dedicated themselves to building a simple, efficient, but most importantly, a trusted cryptocurrency trading platform. Then, on November 25th, 2019, the Phemex platform officially went live.
Phemex.com (Fama) is the personification of fame and of the public’s voice in Greek mythology. While MEX stands for mercantile exchange. This name was chosen to highlight the vision and the dedication to stand as the most trustworthy trading platform.

Phemex Trading fees
As they mentioned above, in terms of Spot Trading, Phemex has adopted a zero trading fee model. Instead they just charge for monthly Premium Memberships (prices are $9.99 for 30 Days, $19.99 for 90 Days and $69.99 USDT for 365 Days). Becoming a premium member will also allow you to set conditional spot orders, you will enjoy hourly withdrawals with no limits, and will be able to gift trial premium memberships to friends.
With respect to contract trading, Phemex separates between “takers” and “makers”. Let’s describe these terms real quick. Every trade occurs between two parties: the maker, whose order exists on the order book prior to the trade, and the taker, who places the order that matches (or “takes”) the maker’s order. They call makers for “makers” as their orders make the liquidity in a market. Takers are the ones who “take” this liquidity by matching makers’ orders with their own.
At Phemex, takers are charged 0.075% per order. This is a fair fee. Sure, there are exchanges offering even lower taker fees for contract trading, but there are also many exchange charging much higher fees.
When it comes to the makers, their fee is -0.025%. This essentially means that each maker gets paid to trade. To clarify, let’s say that you are the maker in an order where you purchase a derivatives contract for USD 1,000. This means that instead of paying USD 1,000, you will only have to pay USD 997.50. This is very competitive indeed.
Phemex Withdrawal fees
To the understanding, Phemex does not charge any fees of their own when you withdraw crypto from your account at the platform. Accordingly, the only fee you have to think about when withdrawing are the network fees. The network fees are fees paid to the miners of the relevant crypto/blockchain, and not fees paid to the exchange itself. Network fees vary from day to day depending on the network pressure. There is however a minimum fee of 0.0005 BTC when you withdraw BTC from the platform.
As is customary for newer exchanges, Phemex also offers different bonuses to attract customers. As a welcome bonus, Phemex offers you up to $60 for any deposit of 0.2 BTC or more. This bonus can also be claimed by depositing other cryptocurrencies. In addition Phemex also offers you a $10 spot trading bonus for a single order worth 500 USDT and a $10 contract trading bonus for a single BTC/USD transaction worth 5000 USD. In total, you can receive up $80 dollars in bonuses. Please note that these bonuses may change at any time.
