Lot is the minimal amount of currency, available for buying or selling. Without such standardisation, valuing and trading options would be needlessly cumbersome and time consuming.
For each market there's an established lot amount on HitBTC. For example, the BTC lot amount equals 0.01 BTC.
The most common issue is when you have a certain amount of assets, which doesn't exceed the lot amount. This amount couldn't be sold. There are two options to handle it:
- You can withdraw these assets, or just store them on your account.
- You can buy some other asset, specifying the exact needed price.
