3 Trading Currency Pairs

A "Currency" or "[GBP]" refers to a specific Digital Asset or a specific Legal Tender. A "Currency Pair" is a set of two Currencies, displayed side by side, that are traded in a Digital Asset trade.

Each Currency Pair, as shown on the Site, indicates the amount of Currency displayed on the right side of the Currency Pair that is necessary to acquire one unit of the Digital Asset on the left side of the Currency Pair. For example, ETH/BTC indicates the amount of BTC necessary to purchase one ETH and BTC/JPY indicates the amount of JPY necessary to purchase one BTC.

The Currency Pairs available to you for trading are visible on the Site after you log in.

5. Slippage

Slippage refers to a situation in which there is a difference between the price specified by the user (the price displayed on screen when placing an order) and the actual execution price due to reasons such as market changes after an order is placed. In some cases, slippage may be beneficial to the user, but it may also be detrimental; however, CoinBurp bears no liability whatsoever in relation to slippage. Slippage can occur with market orders and stop-loss orders. After the order placement, the price designated by the user and the actual contract price might differ, but CoinBurp will not be liable for that difference.

5.1 Position Management Fees

Position management fees are fees that are incurred when a user takes a new open position and each day that an open position is rolled over to the next trading day. Position management fees are not affected by changes in Digital Asset prices, etc.

Payment of position management fees is made when taking a new open position and when an open position is rolled over to the next trading day.

Position management fees are set out in Article 9 "Fees" below. CoinBurp determines position management fees based on factors such as the current price and market environment surrounding Digital Assets.

6. Depositing and Withdrawing Legal Tender and Digital Assets

6.1 Depositing Legal Tender

Legal Tender deposited by users must be in Great British Pounds. Legal Tender deposits must be transferred to the bank account designated by CoinBurp. Legal Tender funding options are subject to change from time to time.

Money transferred to CoinBurp's designated bank accounts will be reflected in the user's account once payment is confirmed. Users need to be aware that it may take time for transferred amounts to be reflected in user accounts.

6.2 Withdrawing Legal Tender

Users can have all or part of the withdrawable amount in their account returned to them where "withdrawable amount" means the margin deposited in their user account minus required margin, pending order margin, and unrealized losses. However, users cannot request withdrawal if the withdrawable amount is less than the withdrawal fee.

Withdrawals will be transferred to a bank account in the user’s name. The return of deposited funds generally takes three banking days from the date of the request, except in cases where CoinBurp notifies the user otherwise.

6.3 Depositing Digital Assets to User Accounts

When depositing Digital Assets into a user account, users must transfer the Digital Asset to the Digital Asset address designated by CoinBurp. Digital Assets transferred to the Digital Asset address designated by CoinBurp will be reflected in the user's account once the transfer is confirmed during business hours. It may take time for Digital Asset transfers to be reflected in user accounts.

6.4 Withdrawing Digital Assets from User Accounts

Users can withdraw all or part of the Digital Assets deposited in their user account.

To withdraw Digital Assets, users must submit a withdrawal request through the trading screen on the Site.

The withdrawal of Digital Assets generally takes two business days from the date of the request, except in cases where CoinBurp notifies the user otherwise.

8. Prohibited Trading Activity

The following types of trading activity are prohibited. When CoinBurp determines, in its sole discretion, that a user is engaged in such activity, the user's account may be suspended or terminated and funds (both Legal Tender and Digital Assets) within the user's account may be frozen or appropriated by CoinBurp as compensation for costs, losses, expenses and any other damage suffered by CoinBurp or any of its other users.

  • Churning: Placing both buy and sell orders at the same (or similar) prices to increase the price by attracting more traders.

  • Pump and Dump: Large scale buying of any Digital Asset to create artificial sentiment around a specified asset to attract other buyers with a view to driving the asset price and volumes higher and then selling the asset at such inflated prices.

  • Ramping: Artificially raising the price of a Digital Asset to give the impression of trading volume and/or price increase, in order to make profit.

  • Wash Trading: Selling and repurchasing the same Digital Asset to generate trading activity and increase the price.

  • Quote Stuffing: Entering and withdrawing large quantities of orders in a short space of time in an attempt to affect the market, thereby gaining an advantage over slower market participants. This may include the use of high frequency trading programs. (Note: High frequency trading is not, in itself, illegal and thus any action by CoinBurp would be taken in light of the nature and pattern of such trading).

  • Market Manipulation: Any trading activity on the part of a user which attempts to interfere with a free, fair and transparent market for all CoinBurp users or which interferes with CoinBurp's normal market operations.
