[Bybit: Virtual currency, NFT] What is currency exchange? Differences from conversion and fees


Bybit has a currency exchange function that allows you to easily exchange your virtual currency for other brands. You can exchange your virtual currency for another virtual currency without any fees. It is a very convenient function because you can exchange it for the currency you want to trade without actually trading. I am writing an article about specifics.

What is currency exchange?

Exchange refers to the exchange of virtual currency for another virtual currency. The currency exchange function is generally done by spot trading, but Bybit has this function. Converting allows you to exchange some or all of your Virtual Currency for another Virtual Currency. However, currency exchange is a feature that is only available for derivative accounts.

What is conversion

Convert is a service that allows you to exchange virtual currency for BIT tokens while trading. I think that there is often a surplus of a small amount of virtual currency that cannot be used for trading, but it is exchanged for its own token. In the case of conversion, only BIT will be exchanged.

Exchange VS Convert

From the point of view of exchange VS conversion, there are differences in the following points.


A flat conversion fee of 2% will be charged. On the other hand, there are no fees for currency exchange. You can exchange virtual currency without commission.

What to do if you cannot exchange or convert money

There are times when you cannot exchange money with Bybit. This is because of the following reasons. Please check before exchanging money.

Exchange quantity limit

As explained above, there is a limit to the amount of virtual currency that can be exchanged. Since both the lower and upper limits are set, exchange will be refused for extremely small or extremely large quantities. In addition to this, if the amount of currency held is too small to be exchanged, it is necessary to exchange it using spot trading.

automatic cancellation

On the exchange screen, if you press the refresh button on your browser or return to the page after entering the amount, the transaction may be canceled. Therefore, it is not recommended to refresh the screen when inputting. In this case, you will have to start over again, so you will have to re-enter the information.
