    Why I received a different amount of funds from the amount that I purchased?

    1.The total asset on the platform is for reference only and is not based on the actual price when purchasing.

    2.Fiat Trading prices fluctuate based on the market. Actual payment = amount of crypto * price of purchasing. Therefore, although the total asset value is different from the actual value, the quantity of the crypto is the same, not less.

    3.If you exchanged other cryptos or digital assets after the fiat trading, the total asset value would fluctuate based on the market.
