Hong Kong-based Coinex, of which mining giant Bitmain is an investor, is a relatively young exchange, offering a range of crypto assets to be traded against the likes of BCH, bitcoin core (BTC), ether (ETH), and tether (USDT). It has a native token, CET, which can be traded against the others as well. Market makers are not charged a fee, while market takers pay a somewhat low 0.10% on trades. Coinex also processes over-the-counter trades and offers referral rewards. They employ a transparent method of token distribution, as all transaction fees collected and how they are distributed are displayed on the site in real-time.

Monthly Allocation

As of the beginning of this month, “Coinex will release ‘Lock & Mine CET’ and execute [the] ‘Long-term dividend allocation plan,’” the company explained. Holding a minimum 10,000 CET is required to receive BCH dividends, and none of the tokens may be acquired through mining – only ‘released’ CET qualify toward the offer. “Coinex will take a snapshot at 0:00 (UTC) everyday and allocate rewards of the previous day according to the snapshot results.” China-Based Crypto Exchange Coinex Pays Interest in BCH

“To guarantee the sustainable development of CET and interests of CET holders,” Coinex continued, “we decided to release a long-term dividend allocation plan by which CET holders will continue to receive dividends after ‘Trade-driven mining’ ends.” Allocation of BCH will occur monthly, and within seven business days of a new month. As always, that date might vary still depending on exactly when final settlement occurs.

“80% of Coinex’s total revenue will be allocated to CET holders and the remaining 20% is kept for Coinex development and daily operations,” the execution plan detailed. The exchange will also use a significant portion of its revenue to “repurchase CET from the secondary market and allocate to the qualified CET holders proportionately,” and holders can determine their personal ratio by dividing held CET by the total CET in circulation.
