It’s time: Thales’ first trading competition

Let the games begin!

As we announced in our previous post, today we are giving the green light to our first trading competition and we couldn’t be more excited about it.

With a total prize pool equivalent to over 50,000 thousand dollars (scroll down for a prize pool breakdown) we are eager to see the strategies our participants will develop in their journey to the top!

Bring those strategies into the arena!

This trading competition will be held on Ethereum mainnet and will last from October 11th, 10:00AM UTC until November 1st, 10:00AM UTC, when all the qualifying markets expire.

If you still haven’t registered follow this link. You’ll need a Twitter account for the verification process (to avoid spam registrations) and can register at any time before the competition ends.

So… are you ready to know some of the ground rules?

No punches below the belt 👊

First things first. We are organizing this trading competition so more people can try out Thales platform and get used to its order book based trading model, while we continue to direct our efforts into Layer 2 expansion.

We are doing this to the best of our intentions and we hope everyone who joins does so with a sportsmanship spirit.

But… just in case we detect malicious behavior during this competition we reserve the right to disqualify entrants.

Cheaters, you have been warned!

Two ways to win

For this competition the total prize pool it’s going to be split into two categories, net profit and gain (%). The idea behind this is that people on a small bankroll but with interesting strategies will also have the chance to win on the gain (%) category and those willing to bring the guns can fight over in the net profit category.

Qualifying markets

While this competition lasts Thales dapp will continue to have its regular markets but only 14 of those will count towards the competition score in both categories (net profit and gain).
