What is YDX?

YDX is a semi-automated escrow service that enables the trading of supported cryptocurrencies through a dedicated Slack team: ydx.slack.com.

For details on how to get an invitation, please click here.

YDX has successfully escrowed over 3100 BTC. This new service will enable quicker and easier trades with no limits on the escrowed amount and no documentation required.

Supported Tokens

The following tokens can be traded to and from BTC:


To deposit Bitcoin, type DEPOSIT followed by the amount of microBTC you wish to deposit.
This step must be complete in the channel: #iota_btc

For example, to deposit 1 BTC:
   DEPOSIT 1000000

The bookkeeper will then provide further instructions - make sure you send the exact amount requested by the bot.

Upon 1 confirmation, your balance will be automatically updated.

1 BTC = 1,000,000 microBTC.

To deposit other currencies, send a direct message to @ydx saying exactly how much you would like to deposit. He will then provide you with a deposit address.

How to Withdraw

To request a withdrawal please send a direct message to @ydx with the following information. It is essential you provide all of the information, otherwise your withdraw will not be processed and your request ignored.

1) Amount AND currency type
2) Withdrawal address


1) 1'000'000 microBTC
2) 1AJBHPhYJMs8Qq3SoYwr2VNecv8EQJ39UJ

Username Policy

All members must *not* change their username as this prevents the bot from correctly issuing commands related to your account.


YDX does not censor people unless they are being personally insulting or have extremist views. This means that you need to take everything that is said with a grain of salt - people may try to manipulate you into buying/selling coins for their own advantage.

How it Works

  1. To send BTC to YDX type DEPOSIT followed by the amount of microBTC you wish to deposit in #iota_btc
  2. Your BTC will be credited automatically when it has 1 confirmation
  3. You buy/sell tokens as many times as you like.
  4. You send @ydx an address to withdraw the earned BTC/tokens
  5. @ydx adjusts your balance and sends real tokens to your address
  6. Trades are taxed with 0% fee.
  7. Deposits/withdrawals are charged with 1% fee (rounded up).
  8. Min amount of a deposit/withdrawal is 20'000 microBTC/100 tokens.
  9. For instructions on how to trade once you have your tokens credited, type "HELP" in the #iota_btc channel.
  10. Provide @ydx with a BTC and IOTA address so you can receive your funds in case the slack cannot be reached.
  11. For each deposit, a new address is generated. This is required so @bookkeeper can keep track of balances.
  12. Tokens and microBTC for fees are always rounded up. (1 unit for 2-100 units, 2 units for 101-200 units etc.)

Buying IOTA Example

  -Alice types 'DEPOSIT 50000000' in #iota_btc (without the ' ')
  -She sends the exact BTC amount specified by @bookkeeper to the address provided
  - Once the BTC are confirmed, her BTC are credited automatically minus the fee
  -Alice's balance is increased to 49,500,000 microBTC
  -To see the current BIDs and ASKs, Alice types the following command in #iota_btc: ORDERS
  -She checks the orderbook and decides she would like to buy at 45 Miota per MicroBTC
  -Alice works out how many Miota she can buy with the following math: 49,500,000 / 45
  -The result is that Alice can buy 1,100,000 Miota
  -Alice types the following command in #iota_btc: BID 1100000 45
  -The trade goes through and Alice's balance now has 1,100,000 Miota

Deposit/Withdrawal Examples

  -Alice types 'DEPOSIT 50000000' in #iota_btc (without the ' ')
  -She sends the exact BTC amount specified by @bookkeeper to the address provided
  - Once BTC are confirmed, @ydx types "GIVE 49.5 BTC TO @Alice (1% fee included)
  -Alice contacts @ydx and says "I want to withdraw 200 Miota"
  -@ydx executes "TAKE 200 Miota FROM @Alice"
  -@ydx sends 198 Miota to Alice (1% fee included)
