What preceded it? In 2019, the BitMEX exchange stopped supporting new digital assets, focusing on trading derivatives. In February, BitMEX issued its own BMEX token and held an airdrop. A total of 450 million tokens were issued, with holders of the asset receiving discounts on exchange fees and a number of other benefits.
