Thank you to all the traders who participated in the first BitMEX Trading Challenge. There were over 350 participants but there can only be one winner.
A trader with the username JMG decidedly won the first challenge. His account balance was an impressive 553.3853 XBT, for a return on equity of over 1,000%. BitMEX has sent 5 XBT to JMG’s personal Bitcoin address. BitMEX will also donate 5 XBT to The Water Project. The Water Project helps provide clean, safe water in developing countries.
The second 0.5 XBT prize was given to a trader with the username EZK27. He finished in the top 10, and was chosen at random to receive the prize.
The BitMEX Trading Challenge II is now live. All traders have been given a fresh start with 50 fake XBT. The real launch of BitMEX is weeks away. Keep learning and trading so you can start making real Bitcoin by the end of this month.
Below are the final results of the top 50 traders:
