Launch of SnapEx World Trading Championship (WTC) 2020

SnapEx World Trading Championship (WTC) 2020

The first series of SnapEx World Trading Championship (WTC) will begin at 15:00 on March 17, 15:00 and end on March 31, 15:00 (UTC + 8). This competition will be based on Real account trading and winners will be based on their Return-on-Equity (ROE). WTC will host 2 contests:

  • Daily ROE- Top 5 traders with the highest daily ROE (for the past 24 hours)
  • Overall ROE- Overall ROE ranking (of up to 400 winners) for the duration of the competition

Unlike regular trading contests, our new trading competition format for WTC will feature a tiered competition reward system. The more users who participate in WTC, the more that the total prize pool for the competition will increase. The total limit for the prize pool can reach as high as 120,000 USDT, while the maximum number of winners can be as many as 400.

Competition Time

The competition will run for 14 days, beginning on Tuesday 17th March 2020 (GMT +8) and ending on Tuesday 31st March 2020 (GMT +8).

Start: 15:00, 17th March 2020 (GMT + 8)

End: 15:00, 31st of March 2020 (GMT +8)

Participation Rules

  1. To be eligible to participate in the competition, users need to:
  • Sign up
  • Complete KYC
  • Deposit (minimum of 50 USDT)
  • Complete at least 1 trade
  1. To be eligible for the competition rewards, users need to have a minimum of 50 USDT (in their Real account) at the start of the competition.
  2. Users may only use one account to participate. If a user is found to participate through more than one account, the user will be removed from the competition.
  3. An account with less than 50 USDT will start with negative ROE. For example:

At the start of the competition, your account balance is 30 USDT. After placing a Real account trade, your account balance becomes 40 USDT. At this time, your return in this competition is (40-50) / 50 x 100% = -20%

A user can deposit additional funds into their account during the competition in order to get their account balance equal to or above 50 USDT. That way you will be able to compete in WCT without a disadvantage.

Competition Reward Mechanics

  1. The prize pool for the competition will be determined on a floating basis. The larger the number of participants, the higher the total bonus (of up to 120,000 USDT).
