How much does the coin / token listing cost?
Binapex charges service fee for listing coin/token. The service fee is $150. To submit a listing application, user must have at least $ 150 on his Binapex USD balance. The service fee is deducted from Applicant’s balance the moment he applies for listing. If, following the consideration of listing application, Binapex refuses to include coin/token in the listing, the service fee will be released and fully refunded to the Applicant. In case of a positive decision, the service fee will be charged from your balance in favor of Binapex to pay for the technical works of the Binapex staff on connecting your coin / token to the Binapex public listing.

In case if your application is declined – the service fee will be fully refunded to you, less possible transaction fees.
What to do after the coin/token is listed on Binapex?
After your coin / token appeared on Binapex, at first you will basically perform the functions of a marketmaker for this coin / token. This is especially important for coins/tokens that are just entering the market or still on ICO stage. What does this actually mean?
- You must support the market for your coin / token, ensuring constant availability of open buy and sell orders for your coins / tokens. Create multiple buy and sell orders with different prices. Users visiting your coin / token market should see that there is indeed a demand and supply for your coin/token.
- At least sometimes, make deals on sale and purchase of small amounts of your coin / token, even from yourself. On the one hand, this fixes the rate of your coin / token in the Binapex trading system. On the other hand, those who visited your coin / token market will see constant activity.
- If your coin/token is at the ICO stage, you can:
- transfer all or part of the volume of your coins/tokens to be sold during the ICO to the balance of your Binapex account;
- depending on the ICO stage, change the buy and sell price of your coin / token stepwise. In fact, you will conduct an ICO fundraising by selling coins / tokens on Binapex market;
- additional advantage of conducting an ICO on Binapex market is an opportunity for users who have already bought your ICO coins / tokens at initial stages of ICO to sell them at a higher price at subsequent ICO stages. Thus, the quality of your ICO will increase due to the fact that your investors can fix their profits before the ICO ends!
- Make sure that your coin / token has real transactions during the calendar month and the total turnover of your coin / token on Binapex does not fall below $ 100 per month. Coins/tokens with total turnover below $100 per month may be excluded from the listing.
If your coin/token is listed, you will have the obligation to submit important notices.
You should notify Binapex of the following:
- At least 2 weeks' notice of any significant code or protocol changes for your coin/token, especially hard forks.
- Major issues with your coin/token, including hacks or network problems, as soon as you become aware of them.
- Any issues with deposits or withdrawals of your coin/token from Binapex.
Binapex reserves the right to remove any coin/token listed on its markets for violations of listing terms. This is solely at our discretion.
Is your coin ethical or legal?
We review every coin/token submitted for listing to check if it meets our legal and ethical requirements. We look at who is in the core team and ensure they have a good reputation with no history of unethical dealings. A coin / token concept should have a Web presence and be backed by a community of people, with a clear business model. The terms and conditions of the coin/token should be clearly expressed and transparent, especially for utility tokens supporting ICO ecosystems.
Be aware of our delisting policy and your ongoing obligations.
Before you list, be aware of your obligations to us to help maintain your listing.
Reasons a coin/token may be eligible for delisting include, but are not limited to:
- Any network issues or vulnerabilities of coin/token that could be exploited. Examples include:
- Low hash-rate;
- Out of date code base or wallet stability issues;
- Frequent issues with deposits or withdrawals (outside Binapex control).
- Insufficient nodes to keep the wallet synced and network propagating transactions.
- Coins, which violate our terms and conditions, policies, or an applicable law.
- For already listed coins/tokens – long-term absence of significant trade operations with a coin / token. Under this definition fall coins/tokens with total turnover less than $100 per one calendar month.
- Coins/tokens without a working, reliable block explorer.
- Coins/tokens that fail to provide notification of mandatory updates.
At our discretion, Binapex may issue a warning for breaches of our listing terms and conditions and provide the coin/token team an opportunity to rectify any issue(s). Binapex is uninterested in delisting of best-selling coins / tokens. Delisting is an extreme measure when there is no other way to rectify the violation of Binapex listing caused by coin/token.
In case of token/coin delisting, Binapex:
- Posts 30-days public notice on Binapex about upcoming coin/token delisting.
- 30 days prior to delisting posts user notification on the coin/token market to be delisted.
- Sends email notifications about the upcoming delisting to all affected Binapex users.
- Will not refund the service fee.
Coins issued with a delist notice will have their markets closed and there will be a 30-day notice and withdrawal period before the listing is removed. This information will be published on our coin/token info, delisting, and market pages and we will endeavor to email all affected Binapex users.
