GETCA$H swap program launch

To improve the liquidity of DUK+ stakes collected by clients, the Bank launches GETCA$H swap program. This program allows holders of DUK+ stakes to get fast access to fiat money by means of the swap – a special exchange contract of Dukascoin for EUR with further buyback at a fixed price. The standard contract duration is one month. Clients may apply for prolongation of the initial swap by paying a fee. The cost of use of the received cash is based on a 7.5% annual rate. The swapped stake continues to be active but its duration is correspondingly prolonged for the term of the swap. For more details, please visit the web page dedicated to this program.

The service is available now in the web MCA application and will be also soon released in the mobile applications.

Swissqoin - the follower of Dukascoin

We would like to congratulate our colleagues from Postfinance and Swissquote for launching a new Swiss neobank Yuh and wish them great success in their new endeavour. Dukascopy Bank is delighted to welcome a new cryptocurrency Swissqoin that will certainly enrich the Swiss crypto industry and assist in making blockchain-based financial technology be widely accepted in Switzerland. Dukascopy Bank has started its digital bank and cryptocurrency two years ago and therefore is happy to greet new serious players in the market.

Unfortunately, we have noticed that some public media channels are referring to Swissqoin as the first cryptocurrency issued by a Swiss bank. It is especially sad that such misleading information was published on the website of Postfinance. We would like to emphasize that cryptocurrency Dukascoin has been launched by Dukascopy Bank in February 2019 and was successfully developing ever since. There are hundreds of thousands of on-chain and off-chain Dukascoin holders and transactions. Dukascopy Bank is welcoming competition and innovation but invites the media and the industry to reflect and respect objectivity.

Besides, it is particularly heartwarming and encouraging for Dukascopy Bank that Swissqoin bears many features and principles that lie at the heart of Dukascoin cryptocurrency. We commend the acceptance of our model and anticipate that more and more banks will realize its benefits and implement similar crypto solutions in their ecosystems.

EUR Reward Staking program threshold is lowered to 500 DUK+

Dukascopy Bank SA is pleased to inform that Staking programs with a reward in EUR have become even more affordable with the new lowered threshold of only 500 DUK+. The current reward rates remain intact at 0.1 EUR and 0.5 EUR per Dukascoin for 3-months and 1-year stakes respectively if the stakes are allocated in Blockchain and 0.09 EUR and 0.45 EUR per Dukascoin respectively for stakes allocated within the Bank’s infrastructure (MCA accounts). The difference in reward rates between the options of coins allocation in the Bank or in Blockchain is aimed to cover storage-related expenses of the Bank.

The Fat Catz qualification threshold adjustment

Dukascopy Bank announces that the qualification threshold for entering into prestigious Fat Catz reward program will be lowered from 15 000 DUK+ to 10 000 DUK+ on April 1 2021. The adjustment aims to counterbalance the DUK+ price surge that occurred at the beginning of the 2021 and thus to ease the program joining for new clients.

For more details, please check the program’s web-page.

25.03.2021

Staking programs related changes

Dukascopy Bank is applying changes for its staking reward programs to make their conditions more relevant to the coin’s price and the current stage of the project. Please see below.

Staking programs with a reward in EUR have become more affordable with a significantly lower threshold, as the Bank is decreasing the amount of coins required to participate in the EUR reward staking program from 20 000 DUK+ to only 5 000 DUK+. The current reward rates remain intact at 0.1 EUR and 0.5 EUR per Dukascoin reward rate level for 3-months and 1-year stakes respectively if the stakes are allocated in Blockchain. For the stakes placed in the Bank, the new quarterly reward rate is 0.09 EUR per Dukascoin and the yearly rate is 0.45 EUR per Dukascoin. The difference of reward rates between the options of coins allocation in the Bank or in Blockchain is to cover storage-related expenses of the Bank.

There is also a positive change for participants of the staking program with a reward in DUK+: previously, the total amount of coins allocated into the reward could not surpass 25 000 DUK+ on any given Multi-currency account. This limit has been raised to 50 000DUK+.

The changes will come in force as of the moment of the news publication.

ATTENTION! COIN REWARD RATES ARE CHANGING!

Dukascopy Bank would like to remind its current and potential participants of the Dukascoin reward programs, that starting from 1st of April, 2021 rates for the new coin reward stakes will be lowered and the stakes size structure will be changed. The new income schedule remains stake size dependent and is represented as follows:

Size of the stake (DUK+) Reward for 1 year stake
Regular / Blockchain
Reward for 3 month stake
Regular / Blockchain
50 5/15 1/3
200 10/20 2/4
500 15/25 3/5
1000 20/30 3.5/5.5
2500 30/40 5/7
5000 40/50 6.5/8.5
10000 50/60 8/10

The Bank guarantees that this change will not affect stakes allocated before 1st of April, 2021.

Please be informed that current market conditions allow to acquire significant stakes at the best ASK price as there are more than 18500 Dukascoins available at 3.51 EUR per coin. It is high-time to take advantage of the available liquidity and join the coin reward program before the change is implemented!

05.03.2021

Referrer’s remuneration logic change

Currently, any referrer receives 5 Dukascoins as a bonus for every invited friend who opens an MCA account. Dukascopy Bank is implementing changes to the referrer’s coin distribution. In particular, the referrer will get their 5 coins for introducing a client once the referred client opens an MCA account and meets the 100 USD of incoming deposit turnover limit requirement within 90 days of opening an account. If the 90 days rule is not met, the referrer loses the right to get the 5 Dukascoins.

This measure has been put in place to prevent abuse on accounts which are referred and opened with no actual intent for use. The changes will be implemented during the coming weekend.

Dukascoin 2nd anniversary: same benefits - more freedom!

28th of February, 2021: Dukascopy Bank SA is happy to celebrate the second anniversary of the Dukascoin project - the first payment crypto coin issued for public use by a licensed and regulated Swiss bank. We are very proud of the progress achieved during this second year of its journey. Today it’s time to look back and observe the way the project evolved during this period.

First of all, we gave Dukascoin holders more freedom to manage their crypto assets. They can now move their Dukascoins to their Ethereum blockchain wallets and still participate in the reward staking programs. Moreover, we offer substantial premiums for reward staking allocated in blockchain. In other good news: we made coin reward staking programs affordable for every client – clients only need 50 DUK+ to be saved to join the coin reward staking program! For those who are looking for more flexibility in managing their cryptoassets, we have introduced a 3-month term for both coin and EUR reward stakes. More details about the current conditions of the coin reward staking program.

The year has also been lucrative for those who confirmed their loyalty to the project by being a member of the exclusive Fat Catz club: more than 16 000 EUR worth of commission paid on the Dukascoin marketplace was distributed amongst club members. 

Last year demonstrated a sustainable growth of interest for the new crypto asset: the Dukascoin reached an all-time high a couple of months ago at 7 EUR per Dukascoin. The average yearly price of the Dukascoin on the internal marketplace reached 4.2 EUR per Dukascoin and currently shows stability and resilience compared to the overall crypto market volatility which has been quoting at 3.5 for a long time.

The local marketplace is not the only place where clients can exchange their Dukascoins. During the past year, Dukascopy Bank established a strategic partnership with the regulated European cryptoexchange ZBX. Now, clients of both entities can keep their fiat secure with a reliable Swiss bank and also make transactions on a regulated exchange with several of the most popular cryptocurrencies including the Dukascoin. Another Asian cryptoexchange – Bitsonic – is close to an agreement and Dukascopy Bank is going to achieve even more recognition not only in Europe but in the Asia-Pacific region.

Finally, an achievement related to niche Dukascoin products: the Silver Dukascoin and the Level 2 referral program called Big Fish. 16 clients already bought Silver Dukascoins of both the SPACE and the SKY series. The first Silver Dukascoin Set has crossed the Atlantic Ocean and has been delivered to a client in Brazil! Half a dozen  clients have caught the Big Fish and have received additional rewards for their referrals who have allocated Dukascoin stakes into reward programs. 

We congratulate all our clients and crypto enthusiasts
of the world as we celebrate the anniversary of the Dukascoin project!

Low liquidity fee and Minimum trade size change

Dukascopy Bank changes the Low liquidity fee amount from 0.5 EUR to 0.9 EUR per Dukascoin sold at 3.50 EUR or less. It will be applied to every DUK+ sell trade with no exception for a first Dukascoin sell transaction. Due to that, the minimum trade size on the Dukascoin marketplace is increased from 12.75 EUR to 17.25 EUR.

The changes come in force from the moment the Fees & Limits website page is updated.

23.02.2021

Coming coin reward stake sizes and rates change

Dukascopy Bank would like to inform the current and potential participants of the Dukascoin reward programs that starting from 1st of April, 2021 reward rates for the new coin reward stakes will be lowered and the stakes size structure will be changed. The updated income schedule remains stake size dependent and is represented as follows:

Size of the stake (DUK+) Reward for 1 year stake
Regular / Blockchain 
Reward for 3 month stake
Regular / Blockchain
50 5/15 1/3
200 10/20 2/4
500 15/25 3/5
1000 20/30 3.5/5.5
2500 30/40 5/7
5000 40/50 6.5/8.5
10000 50/60 8/10

The Regular reward scheme implies staking and custody on the Multi-currency account of the Bank, while the Blockchain scheme means external staking opportunity at higher rates (link).

This update does not concern EUR Reward rates that remain unchanged (link).

The Bank guarantees that this change will not affect stakes allocated before 1st of April, 2021. For those who are considering joining the coin reward program with current more lucrative rates, there is more than one month left to decide!

18.01.2021

Incoming turnover limit for DUK+ operations

A welcome bonus of 5 DUK+ is issued for every client who opens an MCA account. In order to be able to sell or to transfer those 5 DUK+, clients need to reach an incoming turnover of 100 USD. Any deposit or incoming transfer to a client's account is considered incoming turnover.

This new measure has been put in place to prevent abuse on accounts which are opened with no intent for actual use.

13.01.2021

Low liquidity fee update

Dukascopy Bank changes the Low liquidity fee amount from 0.2 EUR to 0.5 EUR per Dukascoin sold at 3.50 EUR or less.

The change will be applied on January 13th, 2021 and it will come in force from the moment the Fees & Limits website page is updated.

11.01.2021

New lots in Coin Reward Staking program

Following the substantial DUK+ price increase at the beginning of 2021, Dukascopy Bank introduces two new staking lots in the lower end for the convenience of users. Starting from January 11, 2021, holders of Dukascoins will obtain an additional option of 50 and 200 DUK+ lots for 1 year and 3 months staking periods with the following rewards schemes:

Size of the stake (DUK+) Reward for 1 year stake Regular / Blockchain Reward for 3 month stake Regular / Blockchain
50 5 / 15 1/ 3
200 10 / 20 2 / 4

A staking lot of 100 DUK+ will be discontinued while other lots remain unchanged (link).

Regular reward scheme implies staking and custody inside the MCA account of the Bank, while Blockchain scheme means external staking opportunity (link).

EUR Reward rates stay unchanged. Details may be found here.

06.01.2021

FIRST TRANSACTION FEE CHANGE

Please be informed that starting from today the First Dukascoin transaction fee is raised from 4.75 to 12.50 EUR. The changes are already reflected in the Fees & Limits page. Kindly check.

05.01.2021

Low liquidity fee threshold update

In order to reduce the high volatility seen in recent days, Dukascopy Bank corrects the Low liquidity fee threshold from 2.50 EUR to 3.50 EUR per coin. The fee amount remains unchanged at 0.2 EUR per Dukascoin sold.

The new liquidity fee threshold will enter into force immediately after the news announcement.

03.01.2021

The Dukascoin heads to 4.50 EUR per coin

The Dukascoin sets two new records by passing 3.50 and 4.00 EUR per coin price levels and confidently heads to its new milestone of 4.50 EUR per coin. On Sunday, January 3rd, 2021 it trades at 4.39/4.49. The coin gained 159.8% since December 1, 2020 thus outperforming BTC/USD price that rose by 74.1%.

Taking into account the recent DUK+ exchange rate appreciation, the Bank announces that the Low liquidity fee will be changed on January 4th from 1.75 to 2.50.

01.01.2021

The Dukascoin tests at 3.00 EUR per coin

Two days have passed since the Dukascoin established a foothold at 2.50 EUR per coin. On the first day of 2021 it is being traded at 3.01/3.23.

Dukascopy Bank is happy for every client and referrer who each receive a 5 coin reward for opening an MCA account because the value of this welcome bonus has tripled since the Dukascoin project was launched and is now equal to about 15 EUR.

The Bank wishes a Happy New Year to all the adherents of the Dukascoin!

30.12.2020

The Dukascoin hits 2.50 EUR per coin

Just two weeks ago, the Dukascoin reached its all-time high price of 2.00 EUR per coin. Today, Dukascopy Bank congratulates its clients and partners with a new achievement just before New Year’s Eve. At the moment, the coin trades at 2.52/2.60. This dynamic brings confidence that the coin has much potential for further price growth.

The Bank is happy for those early adherents who believed in the Dukascoin’s future and invested into it in the very first months. For example, those who had acquired their coins at their lowest price of 0.6 EUR per coin in September 2019 have already quadrupled their investments in 16 months. Taking into account the participation in the DUK+ staking programs and thus being rewarded with up to 100% of the placed coins, their return on invested funds is about double the quadrupled amount.

Even though the actual rewards for taking part in staking programs were lowered since then, it is still possible to receive up to 70% of the return for a 1-year stake, which is extremely attractive and thus drives the price upwards.

16.12.2020

Dukascoin hits new all-time high

Dukascoin’s BID price reached 2.00 DUK+/EUR level for the first time in its history at 14:29 GMT on December 16, 2020 and the coin steadily trades at 2.00/2.19.

The Bank congratulates its clients and partners with constantly increasing confidence in the Dukascoin – the first crypto currency issued by a Swiss bank.

The Dukascoin project was launched on February 28, 2019 and will soon celebrate its second year anniversary. The lowest BID price of 0.6 DUK+/EUR was recorded on September 25, 2019, since then the price has reached this crucial psychological level amidst constantly growing demand that defines its uptrend.

16.12.2020

Crypto withdrawal fee update & Exceptional offer for DUK+ reward stakes holders

Starting from today the fee applicable to withdrawals in Bitcoin and Ether has been updated to 30 USD, while the fee for the investment delivery to the blockchain is now [30 CHF + 1% x investment value]. Dukascoin withdrawals to blockchain remain free-of-charge.

Following the recent launch of the offering to store DUK+ staking programs on clients’ external wallets, Dukascopy is further expanding this possibility by applying it to DUK+ stakes with EUR reward. Identically to stakes with coin rewards, for EUR reward stakes stored on the external blockchain wallet of the client Dukascopy will pay an extra reward as high as 10% of the stake amount for a 1-year staking program and 8% of the stake amount for a 3-month staking program. See the dedicated webpage for more details.

An exceptional offer to get 100 DUK+ as a one-time reward for every transferred Coin reward and EUR reward stake to an external blockchain wallet is offered to clients only in 2020. Due to the manual processing of such requests and the upcoming Christmas period, clients should be informed that such transfers can only be executed during working days in Geneva and at the latest on the 24 December 2020. Exceptions may be made if agreed in advance.

Starting from 2021, clients will be able to select between all the possible reward types, stake terms, and storage options directly in the MCA interface.

26.11.2020

Coin reward deposits conditions and low liquidity fee threshold update.

With regards to coin staking reward program conditions, the Bank implements a previously announced update.  Starting from 1st of January, 2021 Dukascopy Bank will reduce the minimum deposit size to only 100 DUK+ to facilitate its clients an access to the Dukascoin reward program. 

In addition, starting from January 2021 the Bank will offer the possibility to stake Dukascoins on external ERC20 compatible wallets and will pay an extra 10% annual reward for 1-year stakes (or 2% quarterly reward for 3-month stakes) for deposits held on external blockchain wallets of the client.

Thus, the new coin reward schedule starting form 1st of January 2021 will be as follows:

Size of the deposit (DUK+) Reward for 1-year term (%)
with the Bank / on personal blockchain wallet
Reward for 3-month term (%)
with the Bank / on personal blockchain wallet
100 10 / 20 2 / 4
1 000 20 / 30 3.5 / 5.5
2 000 30 / 40 5 / 7
3 000 40 / 50 6.5 / 8.5
6 000 50 / 60 8 / 10
10 000 60 / 70 9.5 / 11.5


EUR Reward rate will remain the same and equal to the 0.50 EUR for every Dukascoin allocated by the staking deposit for 1 year and 0.10 EUR for every Dukascoin allocated by the staking deposit for 3-month term. The minimum staking deposit size required according to this program remains unchanged: 20 000 Dukascoins.

At the same time, Dukascopy Bank changes the threshold of Low liquidity fee application from 1.50 EUR to 1.75 EUR. The fee amount remains unchanged at 0.2 EUR per Dukascoin sold. The new liquidity fee threshold will enter into force starting from January 1st, 2021.

Special offer for clients with already placed coin reward stakes equal or exceeding 5000 DUK+:
Dukascopy Bank offers an additional possibility to earn an extra 10% annual reward for 1-year stakes (or 2% quarterly reward for 3-month stakes) on already placed coin reward stakes. The extra reward will be applied to residual term of the deposit. In addition, a client will get 100 DUK+ as one-time reward for each transferred stake, if it is transferred from the Bank to the external blockchain wallet till 31.12.2020. To get these additional rewards the client will need to transfer his Dukascoins deposited with the Bank to an external ERC20 compatible blockchain wallet belonging to him.

Dukascopy Bank meets 'Travel Rule' requirements for virtual assets

We are delighted to announce that Dukascopy Bank has signed a partnership with Taiwan-based blockchain security firm CoolBitX Ltd. to participate in the development and implementation of Sygna Bridge. A simple and secure portal for compliant data sharing, Sygna Bridge allows “Virtual Asset Service Providers” (VASPs) to comply with the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) “travel rule”.

This rule requires that "Virtual Asset Service Providers" ("VASPs") initiators involved in a VA transfer obtain and hold the required information about the originator and beneficiary (e.g., name, account number, etc.) and submit this information to the beneficiary VASPs "securely" and "immediately". The purpose of the rule is to trace the flow and identify the originator and the beneficiary in the event of possible cases of money laundering or terrorist financing ("ML/FT") in the context of a VA transfer. The rule also provides that the sharing of information on the originator and beneficiary must not be directly attached to the transfer itself.

The development of financial activities involving VA and VASP are now the subject of increased attention from regulators, and Dukascopy Bank makes decisive efforts to comply with this obligation in view of the expansion of our crypto projects. 

CoolBitX's Sygna Bridge is a member of the Joint Working Group (JWG), an international blockchain industry coalition that develops and promotes the unifying VA messaging standards – InterVASP Messaging Standards (IVMS101) for the purpose of Travel Rule compliance. IVMS 101 is the first successful crypto industry-wide effort to unify Travel Rule compliance services and make them cross-compatible. In addition, Sygna Bridge recognizes how critical messaging interoperability is to successfully combat money laundering. As a result, Sygna Bridge is diligently working toward compatibility among technical solutions and is dedicated to collaboration between industry players. As of today, the Sygna Alliance comprises more than 20 VASPs from around the globe. 

The Sygna Bridge’s solution provides a communication mechanism for the participants to share the required information between the originator and the beneficiary in a secure and immediate manner based on an Application Program Interface ("API"). Information about the originator and beneficiary is entered by the sender into the transaction user interface and the Sygna Bridge platform encrypts and transmits the information to the beneficiary VASP. This function allows the originator and beneficiary VASPs to exchange the information required during a VA transfer simultaneously with the VA transfer itself. In addition, the Sygna Bridge uses cryptographic protocols such as the Elliptic Curve Integrated Encryption System ("ECIES") and the Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm ("ECDSA") to ensure the security and protection of shared information. 

We believe that the Bank's participation in this project will help meet current and future legal and regulatory requirements while providing the necessary impetus for the successful development of services involving virtual assets. In addition, the Bank has not ceased to maintain a constant assessment and vigilance over other projects and potential solutions implemented by other players in order to optimize and select the best solution to its interests.

Dukascopy Bank partners with South Korean crypto exchange Bitsonic

Dukascopy Bank has signed a new partner for its Open Banking ecosystem. This is already the third crypto exchange partnership after SCX  and ZBX within the same framework of the relationship. The partnership principle is based on the simple concept – every private person may open a standard MCA account at Dukascopy Bank and separately an account at the Exchange. Further, the client links both accounts together so that the MCA account becomes the safe custody of fiat funds for the operations with crypto at the partner Exchange. The Bank processes the fiat part of transactions between the client and the Exchange, while the Exchange is in charge of crypto part of transactions. Thanks to API integration between the parties, crypto-fiat parts of transactions are instant and aligned. The Bank and the Exchange independently apply the strictest AML/KYC control for the shared client and client’s transactions.

The partnership with the Bank will permit Bitsonic Exchange (South Korea) to add a broad range of high-quality banking services for its clients in South Korea and elsewhere. Simultaneously, the clients of Dukascopy Bank will get the opportunity to buy and sell tens of cryptocurrencies using the advanced platform of Bitsonic while keeping their fiat funds under the secure custody of the Multi-Currency Account (MCA) at the Bank.    

Bitsonic is one of the largest crypto exchanges in South Korea operated by Skoopmedia Inc. Skoopmedia is anIT Company registered in the Republic of Korea.

Skoopmedia has provided Development and Service Integration services to Multi-National Companies (MNC) such as Samsung SDS, Hyundai Department, Naver,SM entertainment etc since 2011. Skoopmedia started running a cryptocurrency exchange, Bitsonic, from 2018 and they made a great start since the first year of the operation. Bitsonic was named top 3 cryptocurrency exchange in South Korea with 25 million USD daily trading volumes and highest number of trading pairs on their markets by providing trading bridges through Binance and Cointiger. Skoopmedia has partnered with crypto compliance solution providers such as Dow Jones, Elliptic, CoolBitX to ensure that their crypto trading services are in line with coming crypto regulation in South Korea.

The parties also agreed to list Dukascoin – the first cryptocurrency issued by a Swiss Bank – on the platform of Bitsonic. This step should bring additional interest and liquidity to the Bank’s own cryptocurrency from the rapidly developing Asian markets. 

Dr. Andre Duka, CEO-CTO of Dukascopy Bank states: "We are glad to see that our cutting-edge Open Banking ecosystem is growing as new recognized international players are joining forces with us to develop the novel model of cross-industry cooperation. We trust in the bright future of crypto but the one that is regulated and transparent. In contrast to the belligerent appeals from both camps, we are consistently holding to our belief that traditional financial industry and crypto industry can and should naturally complement one another. We are ready to cooperate with the established businesses that share our views. Of course, respecting all the regulatory requirements."

Dukascopy Bank introduces 3-months staking deposits in Dukascoin

After more than one year into the Dukascoin staking program, Dukascopy Bank is appraising the results as a very good start. 325 staking deposits for the total value of 855,120 Dukascoins (0.72 deposits per day since the launch of the project) demonstrate that the first cryptocurrency by a Swiss bank has received careful attention from the clients. Moreover, many users have already renewed their stakings for the second year.

However, the project does not stand still. The Bank has prepared a number of great surprises for this year. The first of them is to be announced right now! Starting from June 1, the staking program will be extended to add 3-month staking deposits. New terms will work for both types of rewards – coin and fiat. The Bank believes that the shorter-term staking proposal will be particularly attractive for traders willing to have their free capital work while preserving the comfortable level of liquidity.

The Bank will pay as much as EUR 0.10 per coin as a reward for fiat staking deposits, which yields 7.3% return per quarter at the current DUK+ price of EUR 1.37. Coin reward for the coming quarter for a 3-month staking deposit of 10,000 DUK+ will be as high as 12.5%, or 1,250 DUK+.

Besides, new term deposits will also qualify for Big Fish - Referral Program Level 2.

ATTENTION! COIN REWARD RATES REDUCTION IS COMING!

Dukascopy Bank would like to remind current and potential participants of the Dukascoin reward programs that starting from 1st of June, 2020 reward rates for new coin reward staking deposits will be reduced by 10% from current levels. The new income schedule will remain deposit size dependent and be represented as follows:

Commission for active traders update

On October 31st, 2019 Dukascopy Bank decided to reward the most active clients by assigning to each trader 1% commission per Dukascoin sold, that is if their trading turnover exceeded 50 000 Dukascoins (both bought and sold).

Starting today, the Bank has significantly lowered the existing threshold from 50 000 to 20 000 Dukascoins and introduced an additional criterion: 1% commission assignment starting from 20 000 EUR or the equivalent in traded Dukascoins. Thus, the commission is now assigned once the trader reaches either 20 000 DUK+ or 20 000 EUR equivalent to the DUK+ traded volume.

Example 1: a client bought 20 000 DUK+ at 0.75 EUR per DUK+. The EUR equivalent of obtained coins is 15 000 EUR (20 000*0.75) which is less than 20 000 EUR. Therefore, 1% flat rate commission is assigned since the DUK+ threshold is reached.

Example 2: a client bought 7 000 DUK+ at 1 EUR per DUK+ and sold them all later at 2 EUR per DUK+. As a result, the traded volume constitutes 14 000 DUK+ (7 000 + 7 000) which is less 20 000 DUK+, while the EUR equivalent of bought and sold coins is 21 000 EUR (7 000*1 + 7 000*2). Therefore, the 1% flat rate commission is assigned since the EUR equivalent of DUK+ traded volume threshold has been reached.

The changes are already implemented and reflected on the Fees & Limits page.

Chaque client peut recevoir 5 Dukascoins en ouvrant un compte MCA. Ensuite, il sera possible de les vendre ou en acheter sur le marché.
