Are time-based rate limits working?

A while back you posted this changelog entry:


  • New request limit for some margin endpoints
    • Changes on these endpoints:
    • POST /sapi/v1/margin/transfer
    • POST /sapi/v1/margin/loan
    • POST /sapi/v1/margin/repay
    • Limit to 1 every 2 seconds。
    • Request beyond the limit will receive HTTP status code 429

I have been testing with POST /sapi/v1/margin/transfer and i’m not seeing that these rate limits are in place.

I have been able to call this endpoint more than once every 2000 milliseconds without ever getting a 429. Below is the result of transferring coins in and out of the margin account 10 times (2 calls each iteration).

[2166, 992, 967, 1062, 3009, 1676, 1486, 1463, 1492, 1684]

As you can see, I am calling this endpoint much faster than once every 2000 milliseconds and yet I am not getting a 429 error.

Is this a bug or is the feature not live currently?


Any word on the above?

sorry still investigating.


Just bumping this thread to make sure it doesn’t get lost.



Is this still being investigated?


yes, we are working it, but no ETA yet, thank you for your patience.
