The Digitex token, gives privileges to traders on the Digitex Futures Exchange. All Digitex holders, can participate, in commission-free, non-custodial markets.

The first, was an ICO, started on January 15, 2018, and sold out in 17 minutes, raising over 5 million USD. The second phase, will last until the end of 2021. The third phase will start in 2022.

Dynamic Trading Rights
Dynamic trading rights, is a token, that can fund all transactions, on any listed pair, or on any new pair that will be listed in the future. The amount of DTR tokens needed for transaction fees, is based on the DTR market data, at the time of the transaction. The calculation will be done, with the best ask price of the DTR token. This favors buying DTR in advance. Every trade on the platform, burns DTR tokens, so the daily volume will match the amount of tokens burnt each day. DTR holders, can also vote for new pairs to be traded, in the platform.
