Cryptocurrency exchange BitMEX causes congestion in the Bitcoin network every day


BitMEX, which processes its users’ withdrawal requests every day at 16:00 CET, creates a density in the Bitcoin network and causes transaction fees to increase.

To send users who pay an average price of Bitcoin, Turkey time with every day are forced to wait about 1 hour for the termination of operations at lunch time. After a while, the waiting time returns to normal. A researcher thinks he has found the reason for this: BitMEX.

As reported by CoinDesk, according to the claim of Bitcoin engineer nickname 0xb10c; If the crypto derivative exchange BitMEX had used more effective technologies, users would have saved roughly 1.7 Bitcoin (about $ 15,000) daily, or 7 percent of their daily transaction payments.

In his latest report on the subject, 0xb10c wrote, “Transactions have a significant impact on the Bitcoin network and user fees.”

As is known, a user charges a small fee for this in each Bitcoin transaction. These wages fluctuate depending on how much hesitation or congestion occurs in the network. The reason for this is that there is a limited space for transactions to take place. If there are too many transactions at the same time, miners prefer higher paying ones. So those who pay less will have to wait.

BitMEX brings thousands of transactions to the system at the same time every day
According to 0xb10c; As BitMEX brings thousands of transactions to the system at the same time every day, there are increases in transaction fees. Speaking about the issue, 0xb10c said, “Every day at UTC time, at 13.08 (TSI 16.08), many transactions, mostly users, withdraw money, are put into the system by BitMEX. As soon as this happens, its effects are seen by the price rates going up. ” said.
