When trading on BitMEX one can lose the feeling for the USD values fast. Therefore it might be smart to change the currency from XBT to USD and make BitMEX display these fiat values.
BitMEX does not offer this with their site (for good reasons), so we have to install external scripts. Please know these can come with risks and you should ask a coder to validate the code that it doesn’t contains malicious/fraudulent functions.
- Install Tampermonkey (Chrome) or Greasemonkey (Firefox)
- Copy the shown script here
- Open BitMEX and click the Tampermonkey Icon right hand from the address bar.
- Choose “Create New Script” from the menu, paste the script and save it.
- Now reload BitMEX in a new tab and give it around 30 secs to run the script in the background.
- Enjoy more sanity in your gamble. Cautious as it can be depressing 🙂
