Although Revolut Bank has been open to cryptocurrencies for several years. However, he wants to go further and launch his own exchange dedicated to “experienced (expert) traders.”

At the moment, this platform is still in beta testing and will offer tools similar to those we can find from competitors, such as limit orders. As for the fees mentioned, they are expected to range from 0 to 0.09%.

So, Revolut is talking about an exchange aimed at “sophisticated traders” that offers execution of market orders (known as a “taker”) and limit orders (known as a “maker”). An interesting point is that limit orders will not charge a fee, and limit orders will cost a maximum of 0.09%.

This is a strong point because... Binance, the most competitive and largest platform at the moment, charges 0.10% per order. (With a good discount if you have BNB tokens). FYI, Revolut currently has over 30 million users, including some who may be experienced traders and have access to the new exchange.

Finally, Revolut Bank's desire to expand its services is not new. And for good reason, this idea has been in the works since at least November 2021, when a job offer was posted to hire someone to lead the team responsible for “designing and building a cryptocurrency exchange.”
