There are a few ways your Margin Funding can be closed:
- The duration you specified for your funding expires and your funding is returned to you by the system,
- The funding taker (borrower) manually closes a trade position and returns your funds,
- The trade the funding taker is in becomes liquidated and your funds are returned by the system, or
- The funding taker decides to return your funding without using it.*
*In an effort to dissuade manipulative funding behaviour and ensure fair platform use for all, Bitfinex will charge a minimum of one full hour's interest to the borrower on any funding that is borrowed and manually returned. A user that has provided the funding will receive the full hour earnings too, minus a 15% fee.
