Note:

  1. For Deposits, LakeBanker fees will be deducted from the face amount/actual received amount. Please avoid overpayment. Withdrawal/payment LakeBanker fees will be deducted from your remaining balance first, then from the withdrawal amount if necessary.

  2. In a deposit/withdrawal transaction, all bank fees (or third-party payment processor fees) are the responsibilities of the User instead of the LakeBanker. If neither is a LakeBanker, the sender and receiver usually need to take care of their own bank fees.

  3. Don't like to pay LakeBanker fees for deposits/withdrawals? Become a LakeBanker yourself to earn some money instead of paying fees when making deposits and withdrawals! LakeBanker Activation Fee is 0.01 BTC. Click LakeBanker in the menu more details.

  4. Trading fees are doubled for dark pool orders.

  5. Trading fees displayed above are for each leg of cross trades with multiple legs. The match engine automatically finds the best price for your order, and may result in cross trades. This feature is to your best interest and cannot be turned off.

  6. Email customer support and apply for fee discounts if your volumes qualify.

  7. Account histories of the most recent 90 days are available on our website and via API. It's recommended that you download and save the records you need when they are available. History data over 90 days old are permanently destroyed and unrecoverable.

  8. If you need to restore your deleted LakeBTC account, please contact customer support and the Account Restoration Fee is 0.1 BTC.

  9. All LakeBanker fees for deposits/withdrawals are dynamic and they are based on a matrix of factors. They vary from user to user, currency to currency, payment method to payment method. They can even be negative (aka incentives) in some cases. It's difficult to provide an estimate. When you submit your request, your will see the actual fee for your particular request before continuing.

  10. Our match engine and accounting book keeping algorithms have been very reliable and accurate since 2013. If for whatever reason you still believe your balances are off, contact customer support and pay the Account Research Fee of 0.01 BTC. Our staff can manually prepare all the raw book entries of your account for the past 30 days.

  11. All fees are subject to change. LakeBTC reserves the right to modify the terms in our sole discretion at any time.
