The Exchange Plus Leaderboard Returns with a $40,000 USDT Prize Pool

, January 2, 2024

With festivities winding down for the 2023 Exchange Plus Leaderboard USDT Trading Competition, the final celebration is ushering in other, more creeping feelings. Like wrapping up a beloved TV series after hours of viewing time, it can be daunting to know what will fill the void. Rather than floating around in existential dread, we decided to launch another promotion that could prove even greater than the last.

For starters, the USDT prize pool for the Exchange Plus Leaderboard 2024 challenge is a whooping $40,000, nearly doubling potential participant rewards vs. 2023. Top traders in weekly, monthly, and yearly positions will share in the bounty, much like the previous competition. In fact, aside from adjusting the prize distribution totals, all other contest conditions should be familiar to past contestants. USDT rewards are allocated in descending order, but remember, only one trader can receive the title of “Our Legend” in the end. Unlike hefty prize pools, bragging rights are a little harder to share.

To help keep the competition fresh and fair, here’s a quick recap of how the Exchange Plus Leaderboard competition works:

  • Choose a nickname: Log into your CEX.IO account, and create a nickname on Exchange Plus. If you don’t have an account, create one and get verified in just 10 minutes or less.
  • Opt in for the Leaderboard promo: Enter your chosen nickname into the promo page to confirm eligibility.
  • Trade on Exchange Plus: Explore a variety of order types and hundreds of vetted asset pairings, to earn points toward potential rewards.

Traders of the Week, Month, and Year will have the opportunity to receive tiered rewards for the top 10 participants. Each reward period has a hard cutoff time, at which point the next period begins for fresh competition. Eligible CEX.IO users who can access Exchange Plus in their region can test their trading skills, as well as market endurance throughout 2024. 

To align with our company values of simplicity and increased access, we wanted to keep this opportunity within reach for both crypto curious and crypto serious participants. And that means working within established regulations and guidelines across regions to ensure a secure and compliant crypto experience. Unfortunately, that means that at this time, access to Exchange Plus is not permitted for U.S.-based users. To learn more about the availability of our products in your region, please refer to our Terms of Use.

Whether you’re a newcomer, or a crypto veteran looking for a fresh challenge, we hope the Exchange Plus Leaderboard continues to be a source of adventure and discovery in the coming year. Before opting in for the competition, users at every stage of their digital asset journey should read the rules carefully, and acknowledge the risks of transacting in the digital economy. With prices in perpetual flux, it’s important to track current and long-term valuations before placing any orders. After all, it’s best to proceed with measured understanding in crypto, especially when glory and prizes are on the line. 

Best of luck, and may the markets trend in your favor.
