Miscellaneous Info

Minimum Order Sizes

Each trading pair has a unique minimum order size denominated in the base currency. You can access the minimum order size for a specific token pair using Blocktane's API, at the following URL:

https://trade.blocktane.io/api/v2/xt/public/markets

Sample output:

{
  "id": "btcbrl",
  "displayName": "BTC/BRL",
  "base_unit": "btc",
  "quote_unit":"brl",
  "min_price":"0.01",
  "max_price":"1000000000.0",
  "min_amount":"0.0001",
  "amount_precision":8,
  "price_precision":2,
  "state":"enabled"
}

In this example, the minimum order size is 0.0001 BTC. For the most part, the smallest order size allowed is about the equivalent of \$4.

Transaction Fees

By default, trading fees are 0.15% for maker fees and 0.20% for takers on Blocktane. See the article below for more details.
