Also, any prohibited persons or persons residing in restricted jurisdictions cannot be invited.

Please refer to our Bitfinex Terms of Service and Affiliate Terms of Service.

What are my expected earnings as a Bitfinex affiliate

Bitfinex affiliates can earn up to three degrees of connection within their network through trading and margin funding activities. This means that you will not only benefit from the activities of the people that you invite to Bitfinex, but you will also receive commissions from the people that they invite!

The fees reward follows the calculation below:

1st Degree (direct) member connections — 18%  2nd Degree member connections — 6% 3rd Degree member connections — 2%

Commission multipliers are an additional way to get more earnings on your affiliate earnings. You and your members need only meet certain criteria to enjoy the relevant benefits, have a look below for details.


1. Verify your account

If your account is KYC verified to Basic Plus level or higher, you will get a 1.2x multiplier; If one of your members is KYC verified to Basic Plus level or higher, you will get a 1.2x multiplier that applies to the fees generated by that specific account.

2. Hold UNUS SED LEO tokens

If one of your members has an average holding of UNUS SED LEO tokens greater than 500 USDt LEO equivalent over the past 30 days, you will be eligible for an additional multiplier on his activities as follows:

500+ USDt LEO equivalent - a 1.1x multiplier  5,000+ USDt LEO equivalent - a 1.2x multiplier  50,000+ USDt LEO equivalent - a 1.5x multiplier

3. Be active on social media

You can get an additional multiplier if you or your network members share or like Bitfinex official social media posts. 

The multiplier is valid for 36 hours after the last social media interaction (such as a like or a share) and is only applicable to recent Bitfinex activities (past seven days): 

1.1x if you have more than 1,000 followers 1.2x if you have more than 10,000 followers

If members of your network also interact on social media, you can get an additional 1.1x or 1.2x (depending on their followers in the formula mentioned above) on revenues generated by their activities.

link your Bitfinex account with your social media account in order to benefit from social media activities. You can do this by logging in to your Bitfinex account and going to Account > Account Info > Connect Social Media.


Bitfinex supports social channels, including Twitter, with supported activities such as liking and sharing/retweeting.

The Developers' Reward

If you integrate Bitfinex’s APIs in your products or trading libraries, you will get a 5% rebate for each trade made through the APIs. The 5% developers’ reward is fixed and not subject to monthly reductions over time.

To benefit from the rebate, developers will need to integrate a referral code (generated from their Affiliate Dashboard) into their product or code. When a user of the respective API platform or tool sends an order through the API, the developer will receive a 5% rebate on the trade fees for that order.

To integrate your APIs with Bitfinex, please refer to our API documentation: 

When using v2 endpoints, add your affiliate code as a meta information: 

meta: { 'aff_code': 'youraffiliatecode' }

When developing instead with v1 endpoints, the affiliate code can be added directly into the main object: 

{aff_code: 'youraffiliatecode' }

The fees reward is calculated as below:

A fixed 5% rebate (it does not reduce over time);  The eligible rebate fees apply to trading activities and derivatives (at 1bps) referred to as Eligible API Fees (EAF) and exclude margin funding.

Note: The developers’ reward will run on top of the Affiliate Program, meaning if you have an active affiliation network and it’s using your trading tool, you will be rewarded with both the affiliate’s (starting at 18% for immediate connections) and the developers’ reward (5% rebate)!
