  • 15,000 participants – $1,875,000
  • 18,000+ participants – $2,000,000

What is the Phemex Trader’s Arena?

This Phemex Trader’s Arena is a crypto trading competition organized for both teams and individuals. To participate, traders only need to have an account with a BTC Trading Account Net Value of at least 0.005 BTC.

Once registered, all you have to do is continue trading as usual to advance the rankings. You can participate as an individual, join a team of your choice, and even form your own team and become team captain.

When it comes to teams, for a team to be considered eligible, it must have at least 10 participants. If a team doesn’t meet this criterion, it will be automatically disbanded when the competition begins, and its members will be assigned to other eligible teams.

The trading competition will occur between March 24th and April 7th, and the prizes will be distributed starting with April 13th.

What is the prize distribution system?

The total prize will be distributed for teams and individuals, with teams receiving 78% of the total prize and individuals receiving 22%.

Team awards breakdown

  • The 1st place team will receive 25% of the total prize pool.
  • The 2nd place team will receive 15% of the total prize pool.
  • The 3rd place team will receive 8% of the total prize pool.
  • The teams that rank 4th to 10th will receive 30% of the total prize pool, which will be equally distributed among all the teams, amounting to around 4.28% of the total prize pool for each team.

But since not all traders are equal, each team’s award will be further broken down as follows:

  • 40% will go to the team captain.
  • 30% will be equally distributed between the top 10 traders of the team.
  • 30% will be equally distributed between the rest of the traders.
  • If a team has less than 20 members, the team captain will still receive 40% of the prize while the remaining members will split 60% of the award equally.

Individual awards breakdown

  • The 1st place individual will receive 8% of the total prize pool.
  • The 2nd place individual will receive 5% of the total prize pool.
  • The 3rd place individual will receive 2% of the total prize pool.
  • The individuals placed between 4 and 10 will receive 7% of the total prize pool, which will be equally distributed, amounting to 1% of the total prize for each trader.

The rankings will be determined using various formulae, including ROI and PnL.

For team awards, Phemex will take the average ROI for the top 10 team members and will also calculate the individual Return on Investment:
Individual PNL / (BTC Trading Account initial net balance + incoming transfers during the event + commission income during the event + bonuses received during the event).

In terms of individual awards, Phemex will only use the individual Profit and Loss (PnL):
BTC Trading Account current net value (balance + unrealized PnL) – BTC Trading Account initial net value (balance + unrealized PnL) + outgoing transfers during the event – incoming transfers during the event – commission income during the event – bonuses received during the event.

So what are the rules?

To make the competition as fair as possible, Phemex put together a set of rules that all participants and teams need to follow. The following actions will result in immediate disqualification:

  • Batch account registrations
  • Profits from market manipulation
  • Reverse transactions between team members

API trading is strictly prohibited, and sub-accounts will not count as individual participants in the Phemex Trader’s Arena.
