For institutional asset managers: Edge pays rebates on exchange fees.

Edge pays exchange fee rebates to users on trading volume, enabling you to reduce exchange fees and achieve improved execution. See current exchange rebates

For designated market makers: Edge provides better DMM incentives.

Edge offers the same DMM programs and requirements as leading exchanges. We may be able to offer better incentives on top of those provided by the exchange. Speak to our team to learn more.

Capital Efficient

Up to 5X leverage and cross-venue portfolio margin.
Edge scales strategies with leverage and increases capital efficiency through risk-netting.

Edge provides clients with the ability to utilize credit from FalconX for exchange trading. These facilities provide leverage and mitigate exchange risk. We are also building systems to enable clients to net risk across venues and positions.


Zero integration work required.
If you have already integrated with a major exchange, FalconX Edge requires no integration work. Our API accepts all supported exchanges' API calls. Replace your API keys with ones that we issue and you immediately start getting paid for order flow and utilize credit from FalconX.

Who is it for?

Institutional asset managers actively trading on spot markets. In the future, we plan to expand into supporting derivatives trading as well for clients in approved and compliant jurisdictions.

Whether you are trading $10M notional or $1BN as a designated market maker, FalconX Edge cuts costs and scales capital efficiency.

What are the rebates offered?
