Kraken will reclaim the $10 from non-trading (idle) participants at the end of the competition. You can add more trading funds from your own capital during the competition.
Participants can trade more than 95 different perpetual futures contracts on Kraken Pro during the 30 day futures competition. Traders can deposit their own capital and still be eligible to win. Winners will be decided by the leaderboard rankings when the futures competition ends.
Winners are gauged by overall trading performance, not dollar returns.
- PnL% = Profit / (futures account balance at the start of the period + transfers into futures during the period)
- Profit = (futures account balance at the end of the competition period + futures UPL end of competition period) - (futures account balance at start of the competition period + futures UPL start of competition period) + transfers out of futures wallet during the period - transfers into futures wallet during the period
- PnL% will be calculated using USD rates for all futures balances
