4min Read

Share this article

The Phemex exchange was founded in 2019 by a group of experienced Wall Street executives who wanted to build a professional and transparent crypto trading platform with a customer-centric approach.

Phemex empowers its users to access the right set of tools in order to manage risks associated with trading crypto.

The Phemex Story

The team chose the name Phemex in order to highlight their dedication to building a trustworthy trading platform. Pheme is the Greek god of fame which represents the public voice, while MEX stands for mercantile exchange. Together, the name symbolizes the teams’ vision of facilitating a financial future that provides favorable opportunities to everyone. 

Co-founder Jack Tao and the team behind Phemex realized that unreasonable fees and backdoor dealings plague the traditional financial system. This drove them to embrace blockchain technology in pursuit of free finance. 

Phemex seeks to empower its users with limitless possibilities by eliminating privilege and exclusivity. 

Products and Services

Phemex’s offerings include:

  • Spot trading: Phemex allows its users to spot trade with zero fees by joining a premium membership program. The platform’s standard users are charged a 0.1% transaction fee as takers and makers. API traders too, are charged a 0.1% transaction fee.
  • Contract trading: Phemex lists 37 perpetual contract pairs  in which makers who add quotes to the orderbook get rebates and takers who remove liquidity pay for every trade.
  • Simulated trading: Users can learn about trading and test out strategies without risking their capital.
