BitMEX is a fully Bitcoin denominated trading platform. Most of you traders know that this exchange only accepts Bitcoin deposits. It pays all your profits in XBT and it only shows your released / unreleased PnL in XBT / BTC. Wouldn’t it be nice if Bitmex displayed USD denomination to your PnL along with the BTC values?

The popular XBTUSD, ETHUSD, XRPUSD perpetual swap contracts are all inverse. It means that they are valued in USD. However all your PNL (Profit and Loss) is calculated in Bitcoin. It can be quite hard to understand at first as it is not as straightforward as calculating your PnL on spot market. So it is smart to change the currency from XBT to USD to make things easier. Especially this is great for users who are tracking their PnL in USD.

The following guide explains how to add USD denomination to your Bitmex.com PNL column.

How to display BitMEX PnL in USD values

Bybit derivatives trading platform displays PNL in both USD and BTC.

USD denomination in BitMEX PnL

While Bitmex does not offer this feature by default, we can still use a browser plug-in to have PnL marked in USD.

To implement this we’ll need two things: 1. Third party browser extension and 2. An open source JavaScript code.

Installing Tampermonkey browser extension

Tampermonkey is a popular user script manager. This extension is available for Chrome, Firefox, Brave browser, Microsoft Edge, Safari and Opera.

Chrome and Brave browser: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/search/tampermonkey

Tampermonkey Brave browser

For Firefox you can either use Tampermonkey or Greasemonkey. Both the extensions works. Anyways in this guide we’ll be using Tampermonkey.

Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tampermonkey/

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/greasemonkey/

Or just head to https://www.tampermonkey.net and add the extension to whichever relevant browser you are operating on.

Once you’ve added the extension to your browser you should see the Tampermonkey icon at the top right corner.

Installing BitMEX USD converter script

Click on the Tampermonkey icon from the top right corner and choose “Create a new script” from menu.

Now delete everything from the editor and paste the following script.

Once done click on File >> Save.

Then make sure both Tampermonkey and BitMEX USD converter tool is enabled. You can disable the script anytime you wish.

Now refresh Bitmex.com trading page and wait for few moments for the script to load. Once loaded it should show USD values in your PNL column. It displays both USD and BTC values rather than just USD. Also the USD conversion happens in real time.

Plug-in not working?

This method works with all major web browsers. In order for this plug-in to work properly make sure to set your BitMEX currency display to XBT (Bitcoin). It won’t work with other currencies such as Satoshi, micro-Bitcoin and milli-Bitcoin. Also initially it takes a while to load USD values so give it some time.

We hope from now on you don’t have to do any basic conversion from BTC to Fiat currency or Satoshi to USD to value how much the profit is in USD. The script does the job for you.
