Poloniex Revises its Payment Schedule

Popular cryptocurrency exchange Poloniex announced that starting January 8, 2020 it will be implementing a new payment schedule.

The schedule is designed to allow its users to enjoy one of the lowest service charges available in the crypto space. At least that’s how the company portrays it. Poloniex made this announcement on its official twitter handle.

The tweet reads: “We’re rolling out a new fee schedule that gives our customers the lowest fees in the market. […]Check out our new fees coming January 8th.”

Prior to this time, the exchange had been running its spot trading at zero fees with plans to end it on December 31, 2019. The exchange has, however, disclosed that it will be extending this service for one more week. So that customers can trade their “way into 2020 for free!” The zero-fee spot trading will end on January 7, 2020 at 23:59 UTC. On January 8, 2020, Poloniex will also enact its updated fee schedule.
