Fairdesk is a crypto and derivatives exchange that aims to build a platform that would enable its users and traders to go both long and short thereby profiting from the ups and downs of the market. Users can execute critical investing, trading, and risk decisions through high-quality crypto derivatives exchanges.

The platform relies on the core values of providing secure storage options in a reliable and transparent way. Fairdesk limits the scale and frequency of the stepped liquidation process, mark price, and funding rate to protect the client’s assets.

In an interview with Jacky Choi, CEO of Fairdesk we talked about the Fairdesk platform, what makes them stand out from the rest, their referral program, and much more.

1. What was the vision behind creating the Fairdesk platform?

The vision of Fairdesk is to be the leading financial service institution in the crypto industry. Fairdesk is one of the fastest-growing trading platforms in the blockchain industry. We open the global markets for traders to invest in a simple and transparent way. 

After working in the traditional financial industry during the past decade, I became disillusioned by the numerous constraints and unfairness I encountered. Unreasonable charges and narrow vision block users’ equal opportunities. We want to create a service-focused trading platform that can be easily used by everyone,  and that is exactly what we are doing.

Fairdesk breaks these barriers and will continue to iterate. Of course, no matter what we do, we will ensure that users can conduct simple, fair, and convenient transactions with the lowest rates and provide the most professional services.

We are trying to provide high liquidity prices and the lowest transaction fees. Market changes in milliseconds, By the time the order reaches us, the price at which a user selects to trade may have changed. At Fairdesk, our business scale and the high volume of daily trading allow us to provide deep and consistent liquidity, giving traders more control over their trades.

5. What security measures are being taken to ensure that the exchange is safe from hacks?

We have many years of experience in building a secure financial system, while with Fairdesk: Crypto wallet safety is the top task for us. We take an approach to store private keys in offline storage secured by dedicated KMS hardware.

Data infrastructure has different separate zones and data authorization is kept at the minimum level. Data is backed continuously and could be recovered in minutes. Operational Risk is mitigated by internal workflow, 2FA authentications, and other best practices in the industry.

6. How does the referral program on Fairdesk work? Tell us about it?

The referral program lets users earn a bonus for each friend (“invitee”) who signs up and makes a crypto trade using the user’s personal signup link.

We are giving out two types of rewards for referees’ deposits and trading. The inviter can get a 2.5% commission of the friend’s first deposit, up to $300. The trading commission is automatically set up at 35% which is generated from the invitees’ trading cost.

Other than the trading profits, our users have the opportunity to get extra earnings through this program. There are lots of organic referees even without the program, but we insist on doing it to reward our loyal clients.

7. Community engagement is an essential part of any new platform. How are you ensuring that you grow your community and keep them engaged?

Personally, our market team is always available on Twitter and I would like to hear all voices from clients. Our service team is available 24/7 for any requests and inquiries.
