Digital asset exchange Bitfinex has added a new feature that allows users to maintain their exposure to an asset while adding liquidity to their portfolio.
The “Increase Position” feature complements the existing Position Claim which permits users to settle a leveraged position using funds in their margin wallet.
“Increase Position is the perfect feature for sophisticated traders that want to maximise their portfolio management strategies,” said Paolo Ardoino, CTO at Bitfinex. “Increase Position enables users to enter or extend margin positions and obtain access to a variety of borrowing options.”
The new feature is also an underlying feature used by Bitfinex Borrow, a peer-to-peer lending platform that launched in September.

It is also essentially a transfer between wallets / positions, which means it reduces the chance of operational errors and the accumulation of trading fees.
Commenting on the market conditions on Tuesday, Ardoino added: “As volumes on Bitfinex exceed $1 billion, the rally in cryptocurrencies appears poised to continue. Bitcoin’s path towards acceptance as an established asset class is gathering momentum.”
