Your Bitfinex account has three wallets - one for each of our core features. Exchange trading uses funds from your Exchange wallet, Margin Trading uses funds from your Margin wallet, and Margin Funding uses funds from your Funding wallet.
Each of the three wallets is linked to one of the 3 specific functions on Bitfinex:
- Exchange wallet is used for exchanging funds between our supported currencies.
- Margin wallet is used for trading leveraged short and long positions.
- Funding wallet is used for providing margin funding/financing to other traders.
You can instantly transfer funds from one wallet to another for free on the Transfer page. To place an offer or an order, make sure you have funds in the correct wallet.
