More details are in our Rules section below. 👇

You’ll be able to watch the leaderboard on our social media channels and the Contest page. If being on top is your thing, seeing how you fare against your rivals will give you that stimulation to keep going.

Also, take time to come up with the sexiest nickname because if you win  – you will become the legend of CEX.IO! 😎

You’ll need to register with it on the promo page. Without it, we won’t be able to give you prizes 🤷‍♂️.

  2. Trade with $1,000+ trading volume during the competition period
  3. Win up to $2,000

🏎 💨 We’ve got only 2 weeks from April 21 to May 5 so buckle up and prepare for the ride! 

How to win?

The key phrase to remember is this – trading volume 🧐.

What is this? Simple. The overall amount of money that you trade during the contest is what we’ll count as winning criteria for the 1st, 2nd, and 3d prizes. The rest (30 prizes of $50 each) will be given randomly.

❗️ One important thing before you let your competitive spirit out and dive into the contest: log in at the Contest page.

We absolutely need your nickname to track your trades and then give you prizes. Those who don’t follow this rule — won’t be counted as participants.

In this way, you register at our Contest page, and we’ll count your trades! 

👉 The minimal trading volume for the entire time of the contest is $1,000.

👉 You need to perform at least 5 trades. If you make $1,000 turnover in less than 5 ordersit won’t count.

👉 You need to trade at least 3 days (not necessarily in a row).

👉 Trade either one or a few or all of these pairs: BTC/USD, ADA/USD, ZIL/USD, DOT/USD, HOT/USD.

And remember, the better the trading strategy you have, the more money you’ll get by the end of this contest. Because not only you will gain on the price movements of the hottest 🌶 markets, but also you will win additional capital. Then trade it again and gain even more money!
