FAQs

Is there a cost to enter?

No, entrance to the competition is free.

When does the competition start and end?

The competition runs for 1 week from 9th March 9AM AEDT to 16th of March 9AM AEDT.

How much funding will I get in my account?

Each account will be funded with 0.001 Bitcoin.  You will have a maximum of x10 leverage thereby giving you a maximum position size of 0.01 Bitcoin.

What is leverage and can I use it?

Leverage is a multiplier that allows you to increase your position size based on a fixed funding amount. For example, if your account was funded with 0.001BTC and you used x10 leverage, all gains and losses are multiplied by 10.  So a 1% movement in price will result in a profit or loss of 10% on your account. On the other extreme if you used 100x leverage, a 1% price swing against your position would result in your account being wiped out.

We recommend using a minimum of x2.5 leverage on every order as orders below a value of 0.0025XBT are regarded as Spam by the BitMex system and don’t appear in the order book.  https://blog.bitmex.com/notice-regarding-spam-orders/
