— Can I take back my provided funding offer early?
No, once funding has been taken, it can only be closed by the funding taker (borrower) or the system when the funding expires.
Important: Funding providers cannot take back provided funding themselves.
— Can funding be returned before the funding period expires?
The borrower that has taken your provided funding can return your funds at any time before the maximum lending period ends.
When you provide margin funding, you specify the maximum lending period (2-120 days) for the margin funding to be available to the borrower. The funding borrower can choose to return your funding before the expiration date, or the funding will be automatically returned by the system when it expires.
For example, if you specify a period of 120 days, the margin funding will only be closed after 120 days have passed or if the borrower chooses to return your funds early.
Important: To dissuade manipulative funding behaviour and ensure fair platform use for all, Bitfinex will charge a minimum of one hour of interest to the borrower on any borrowed and manually returned funding. After one hour, interest will be accumulated in one-second increments. For details, please view the Fees page.
