VIP AMA- FAQ
1. What programs does Huobi Futures have to help users reduce trading cost fee? what is the advantage of one program over another? Nicole Calt@Nic1Cool
We have two main program to help users reduce trading cost:
● Upgraded VIP Sharing Program: VIPs of any exchange are considered as Huobi Futures VIP+1. Users could provide VIP level or trading volume in the last 30 days on other platforms to apply for a VIP+1 level on Huobi Futures (available for coin-margined futures and swaps). https://support.hbfile.net/hc/en-us/articles/900004736623-Huobi-Futures-Upgraded-VIP-Sharing-Program-VIPs-of-Any-Exchange-are-Considered-as-Huobi-Futures-VIP-1
● Deposit to Become a VIP Program: users with only $30,000 worth of assets could apply for a VIP on Huobi Futures. (available for coin-margined futures/swaps and USDT-margined swaps.) https://support.hbfile.net/hc/en-us/articles/900003415926-Huobi-Futures-Launches-Deposit-to-Become-a-VIP-Activity
Due to the fact that most exchanges require at least hundreds of BTC to be traded per month to reach their VIP standard, many traders have been rejected by these platforms to get a VIP when the annual increase in Bitcoin price has risen by 400%. If you become a VIP of Huobi Futures through either of the above two programs, you should never worry about the increasingly stringent evaluation standards because we use USD as trading unit to evaluate all the time.
2. Would you mind providing a bit more detail as to the role of VIP program as part of the reduce trading costs? Lee Di@pandalucu66
Yes. Please see the below chart on how your 70% trading cost is saved if you trade on Huobi Futures. Based on the data of the crypto derivatives industry, 60% of the VIP trading volume comes from taker orders, and the remaining 40% comes from maker orders, meaning that at 70% of transaction fees can be saved every month if your trade on Huobi Futures. For example, if your monthly trading volume is 25 million USD, the transaction fees on other platform are at least 7.6k and the fee you have to pay on Huobi is only 2.2k, meaning you can save at least 5.4k. And the more you trade, the more you can save. If your monthly trading volume is 1000 million USD, then you will save at least 164k on Huobi Futures.

5. I checked your announcement and found that I’ll get a VIP4–6 if I deposit 200,000 USD worth of assets into the USDT-margined swaps account, then I want to know whether I can get the same level for coin-margined swaps if my application for VIP of USDT-margined swaps is approved? Are they connected? Bourne@Bourne84207751
Good question! On Huobi Futures, the VIP level you can apply for each account is independent. If you deposit 200,000 USD worth of assets into the USDT-margined swaps account, you’ll be qualified on applying VIP4–6, however, to apply for the same level of coin-margined swaps, for example VIP 5, you’ll have to deposit 500,000 USD worth of assets into the corresponding account. For more details, please check the below chart.
