2. How can I use Point Cards?
(1) Deduct trading fees
Fees incurred when placing a trading order can be deducted Point Cards. The fee will be deducted by the points you have (1 pts = 1 USDT fee). A standard 0.2% fixed spot trading fee rate will apply for users who have enabled points deduction. A standard 0.2% fixed spot trading fee rate will apply for users who have enabled points deduction.
When you place a trading order and the fee is paid in USDT, the fee will be deducted by the points from your Point Card.
For example, if you choose XRP/USDT pair, and you sell 20 XRP, you need to pay 0.10232 USDT fee. If you have a Point Card, your Point Card will automatically pay 0.10232 points（pts） as fee.
If your fee is paid in other coins, the fee will be estimated into USDT according to the exchange rate. Your Point Card will pay USDT for it.
For example, if the current market price is XRP/USDT=0.7227, you need to pay 0.02 XRP as fee when you buy 10 XRP with USDT. According to the current market price, you need to pay 0.014454 USDT (0.02 XRP * 0.7227 = 0.014454 USDT). If you have a Point Card, your Point Card will automatically pay the 0.014454 points (pts) fee.
When there is insufficient balance in your Point Card, the Point Card will pay part of fees with points first, then the rest of fees will be paid by your account Balances.
(2) Deduct margin interest
When Point Card holders make a loan, priority is given to deduct the margin interest from points in the Point Cards. However, when you return the loans in advance, you will not be able to use Point Cards to deduct the interest. 1 PTS = 1 USDT fee.
When you pay interest on a loan, when you pay with USDT, the corresponding points are deducted directly from the Card as the interest to be repaid.
A standard 0.098% margin loan interest rate will apply for users who have enabled points deduction.
Taking BTC/USDT as an example. If you borrow 17,000 USDTs for 3 days at an interest rate of 0.1%, you have to pay 51 USDT fees. If you own a Point Card, the corresponding 51 points will be deducted as a fee directly from the Point Card.
