Registration

An important benegit of BitMEX is anonymity – you only need an email to register on the exchange.

On this page you need to specify your email and come up with a password (use a complex password, try not to reuse old passwords).

Once you enter the exchange, you will be greeted by an interface that may scare newcomers, but then again, BitMEX is an exchange for experienced traders and before you start real trading, it is better to practice on a demo account.

Another feature of BitMEX is a fully adaptive interface that you can customize “to your liking” – enable/disable windows, move and resize them.
