Scheduled Temporary Downtime for 1 April (Testnet) and 8 April (Mainnet) for Upgrades to System Architecture

We’re continuously enhancing our trading engine to maintain the BitMEX platform’s excellent performance. As part of our latest initiative to facilitate a major upgrade to our system architecture, we will temporarily halt trading in our Testnet environment on Thursday, 1 April at 02:15 UTC, and our production (Mainnet) environment on Thursday, 8 April at 02:15 UTC. 

From this time in each instance, any order actions will be rejected. Deposits made will be queued for processing.

In both instances, the system will be online again in cancel-only mode from approximately 02:35 UTC. Order cancel requests and deposits will be processed normally. Continuous trading will recommence from approximately 02:45 UTC.

From the halt of trading until continuous trading resumes, there will be no Mark Price updates and hence no liquidations.

Please see the below table for a summary:
