The eosfinex UI displays your funds across 2 balances — your Mainnet Balance and your eosfinex Exchange Balance.
- Mainnet Balance: Your EOS mainnet balances are the funds which can moved and used on the EOS mainnet.
- Exchange Balance: When you engage the eosfinex smart contracts to prepare your account to trade you allocate funds which can be used to open orders. This is your tradable balance. Funds held in the eosfinex custody smart contract are capable of interacting with the eosfinex matching engine. Only you, through the use of your EOS wallet and keys are able to remove funds from the trading contract and initiate and cancel orders.
Your Exchange balance is further differentiated between your Total balance and your available balance.
- Total Balance: The total amount of funds which you have allocated to your eosfinex trading account.
- Available Balance: The portion of your total balance which is not currently tied up in open orders or transfers.
