Features of the 'Holding' and 'Owning' functionality of WBT Coin on WhiteBIT

Since the launch of WBT, WhiteBIT has been providing its extensive integrations with exchange products. Each WBT holder has the opportunity to store coins on their Main balance or transfer them to Holding, which allows them to receive additional benefits.

What is Owning and Holding, and how does it work?

Users of the WhiteBIT exchange have two ways to take advantage of all the benefits of a WBT Coin ownership:

  • by owning WBT coins on the Main Balance (Owning);
  • by blocking WBT coins (Holding).


Advantages of WBT in Owning:


WBT Holding provides the following benefits to the WhiteBIT users:

  • Referral rate increase. Users who transfer WBT to Holding receive a larger share of referral fees;
  • Coin holders can enjoy a 100% discount on maker fees. The discount will be valid if there is a sufficient amount of WBT in Holding;
  • Cancellation of blockchain fee payments. Depending on the number of coins in Holding, holders can receive a certain number of daily free withdrawals of ERC-20 and ETH coins.
  • Free AML checks.  Holders can conduct a certain number of free AML checks every day.
  • Distribution of rewards. Each WBT owner has the opportunity to receive a share of all network fees, depending on the Hold level of his Soul;
  • Additional bonus for Tether US (USDT) Crypto Lending plans.


Benefits for transferring coins to Holding:

Advantages of Holding for crypto deposits

By blocking WBT coins in Holding, user has an additional bonus that increases income from investing in Cryptocurrency Lending plans for Tether US (USDT).


The conditions for receiving the bonus are as follows:

  • The bonus applies only to those plans that were opened at the time when the bonus program was already in effect;
  • The bonus is available only if the user’s Holding level has not decreased during the entire period of the Crypto Lending plan. However, increasing the Holding level will not affect it. Any downgrade of Holding will result in the loss of the bonus;
  • The bonus for already active plans will not increase, if the Holding level increases. It means that the bonus coefficient will be fixed depending on the Holding level at the time of opening a Crypto Lending plan;
  • The limit on the total amount of Crypto Lending plans to receive a bonus is 600,000 USDT. This means that the bonus can be applied to those Crypto Lending plans which total size do not exceed 600,000 USDT. All plans that exceed this amount will not be eligible for the bonus.


Please note: if Crypto Lending plans are opened repeatedly or simultaneously with different expiration dates and their total amount does not exceed 600,000 USDT, in this case the bonus will be active.


It's also worth noting that the Holding level bonus doesn't apply to SoulDrop activity.
