A lot is the minimum amount of cryptocurrency available for buying or selling. Without setting such a limit, valuing and trading options would be unnecessarily laborious and time-consuming.
For each market, HitBTC has an established lot amount. For example, for BTC the lot amount is 0.01 BTC.
The most common issue is when your digital asset holding is smaller than the lot amount. Although you cannot sell your holdings, you have two options of how to deal with this situation:
- You can withdraw your assets or keep them in your account until later; or
- You can buy the amount of cryptocurrency that you are short of to make up a lot.
