  • At the end of each week, participants are ranked by their weekly maker scores, and negative maker fees are awarded to participants in the top 75th percentiles of liquidity providers scored above zero.


  • Binance team will provide daily and weekly reports detailing your performance review.
  • Liquidity providers will be reviewed on a weekly basis (Monday 00:00 UTC to Sunday 23:59 UTC).

  • New participants will enjoy Tier 3 maker fees (-0.003% for USDT-margined pairs and -0.014% for BUSD-margined pairs) for the first three weeks. From the fourth week, only new participants who show qualified performance in the third week of the three-week grace period will enjoy maker fee rebates of the level in correspondence to their performance.
