Reasons for Uncredited Deposits

1. Insufficient number of block confirmations for a normal deposit

Under normal circumstances, each crypto requires a certain number of block confirmations before the transfer amount can be deposited into your account. To check the required number of block confirmations, please go to the deposit page of the corresponding crypto.

2. Making a deposit of an unlisted crypto

Please ensure that the cryptocurrency you intend to deposit on the platform matches the supported cryptocurrencies. Verify the full name of the crypto or its contract address to prevent any discrepancies. If inconsistencies are detected, the deposit may not be credited to your account. In such cases, submit a Wrong Deposit Recovery Application for assistance from the technical team in processing the return.

3. Depositing through an unsupported smart contract method

At present, some cryptocurrencies cannot be deposited on the platform using the smart contract method. Deposits made through smart contracts will not reflect in your account. As certain smart contract transfers necessitate manual processing, please promptly reach out to online customer service to submit your request for assistance.

4. Depositing to an incorrect crypto address or selecting the wrong deposit network

Ensure that you have accurately entered the deposit address and selected the correct deposit network before initiating the deposit. Failure to do so may result in the assets not being credited.


What is the Stop-Limit Function and How to use it

What is a stop-limit order?

A stop-limit order is a limit order that has a limit price and a stop price. When the stop price is reached, the limit order will be placed on the order book. Once the limit price is reached, the limit order will be executed.

  • Stop price: When the asset’s price reaches the stop price, the stop-limit order is executed to buy or sell the asset at the limit price or better.
  • Limit price: The selected (or potentially better) price at which the stop-limit order is executed.

You can set the stop price and limit price at the same price. However, it’s recommended that the stop price for sell orders should be slightly higher than the limit price. This price difference will allow for a safety gap in price between the time the order is triggered and when it is fulfilled. You can set the stop price slightly lower than the limit price for buy orders. This will also reduce the risk of your order not being fulfilled.

Please note that after the market price reaches your limit price, your order will be executed as a limit order. If you set the stop-loss limit too high or the take-profit limit too low, your order may never be filled because the market price cannot reach the limit price you set.

How to create a stop-limit order

How does a stop-limit order work?

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) in

The current price is 2,400 (A). You can set the stop price above the current price, such as 3,000 (B), or below the current price, such as 1,500 (C). Once the price goes up to 3,000 (B) or drops to 1,500 (C), the stop-limit order will be triggered, and the limit order will be automatically placed on the order book.


Limit price can be set above or below the stop price for both buy and sell orders. For example, stop price B can be placed along with a lower limit price B1 or a higher limit price B2.

A limit order is invalid before the stop price is triggered, including when the limit price is reached ahead of the stop price.

When the stop price is reached, it only indicates that a limit order is activated and will be submitted to the order book, rather than the limit order being filled immediately. The limit order will be executed according to its own rules.

What is Limit Order

A limit order is an instruction to buy or sell an asset at a specified limit price, and it is not executed immediately like a market order. Instead, the limit order is activated only if the market price reaches or exceeds the designated limit price favorably. This allows traders to target specific buying or selling prices different from the current market rate.

For example:

  • If you set a buy limit order for 1 BTC at $60,000 while the current market price is $50,000, your order will be filled at the prevailing market rate of $50,000. This is because it is a more favorable price than your specified limit of $60,000.

  • Similarly, if you place a sell limit order for 1 BTC at $40,000 when the current market price is $50,000, your order will be executed at $50,000, as it is a more advantageous price compared to your designated limit of $40,000.

In summary, limit orders provide traders with a strategic means to control the price at which they buy or sell an asset, ensuring execution at the specified limit or a better price in the market.Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) in

What is Market Order

A market order is a trading order executed promptly at the current market price. It is fulfilled as quickly as possible and can be used for both buying and selling financial assets.

When placing a market order, you can specify either the quantity of the asset you want to buy or sell (denoted as [Amount]) or the total amount of funds you wish to spend or receive from the transaction (denoted as [Total]).

For example:

  • If you want to purchase a specific quantity of MX, you can directly enter the amount.
  • If you aim to acquire a certain amount of MX with a specified sum of funds, such as 10,000 USDT, you can use the [Total] option to place the buy order. This flexibility allows traders to execute transactions based on either a predetermined quantity or a desired monetary value.

  • If the blockchain explorer shows that the transaction is unconfirmed, please wait for the process to be completed.
  • If the blockchain explorer shows that the transaction is already confirmed, it means that your funds have been sent out successfully from, and we are unable to provide any further assistance on this matter.
