The Digitex Futures Exchange is a trading platform where traders can buy and sell futures contracts on various cryptocurrencies, commodities and financial instruments. Traders win and lose DGTX tokens. Traders must have a balance of DGTX to place trades which creates demand for DGTX. There are zero transaction fees on all trades. Zero-fee trading attracts highly active, ultra-short term traders who create highly liquid markets using strategies not viable on fee charging exchanges. Large tick sizes level the playing field between human traders and bots.
