2. Benefits for New HTX Market Makers

2.1 Evaluation Exemption

Newly-registered market makers are exempted from evaluation for the first two months of their registration. If they get downgraded after an evaluation, they will still maintain the benefits associated with their current levels. If they were upgraded, they would move to the next level as per the rules.

Evaluation Exemption Period:

1) New market makers who join us on and before the 15th day of the month will be exempted from performance evaluation for the current month and will be assessed starting the following month.

2) Those who join us after the 15th day of the month will be exempted from performance evaluation for the current and following month. They will only be formally assessed beginning from the third month.

After the evaluation exemption period: makers will be assessed according to the evaluation rules; takers will be assessed based on their last 30-day trading volume/balances in compliance with the Prime membership system.

2.2 Rules of level maintenance and advancement

New market makers stand to enjoy the benefits of level maintenance and advancement once by default.

1) Level maintenance benefit: Once every calendar year by default. Level maintenance rights can be asserted should evaluations lead to a level downgrade or elimination result.

2) Level advancement benefit: Once every calendar year by default. Level advancement rights can asserted at any time to determine the highest membership level a market maker can reach in a year.

3) The evaluation exemption period is subject to the market maker's UID and corresponding spot or futures trading business unit.

4) Benefits of level maintenance and advancement apply only to the Maker levels, not Taker. The Taker's fee rate and levels are subject to the Prime program.

5) New level maintenance and advancement benefits (one-time use) will be given to market makers on January 1 every year. Unused benefits from last year will be deemed invalid.
