Create the most profitable DCA bot to win a prize!

Contest period

12:00 PM UTC 16th November — 12:00 PM UTC 14th December

Winners to be announced 16th December 2020

How do I participate?

  1. Create DCA bots;
  2. To register to take part in the contest complete this Google form, you’ll need to record your details and Bot IDs;
  3. Launch the bots when the contest begins at 12:00 PM UTC, 16th November.

If you decide to participate in the contest after the 16th November start date, you’ll still need to register as above: create DCA bots, register via a Google form, launch the bots.

When the contest ends at 12:00 PM UTC on the 14th December, the profits will be calculated, taking both realized and unrealized profits into account.

Which exchanges are supported by the contest?

You can trade ONLY on Spot exchange markets (no Margin or Futures). The following exchanges are supported for the contest: Binance, Binance US, Coinbase, Bittrex, FTX, and Paper account.

How will the winner be determined?

The winner will be determined by the percentage of profit from the maximum amount of funds used by the bot.

Profit — the ratio of realized and unrealized profit to the maximum amount of funds used by bot.

Example: A bot has 20 safety orders, but only 10 of them were executed in the process. All 20 safety orders will be taken into account when calculating the profit.

TL;DR: All orders placed are used when calculating profits, if the price has not reached the price of the safety order, this order will still be taken into account.

Conservative Gordon Bot will represent 3Commas.

What are the rewards?

1 place — PRO subscription for 6 months + merch + airdrop + NFT

2–3 place — PRO subscription for 4 months + merch + airdrop + NFT

4–5 place — PRO subscription for 2 months + merch + airdrop + NFT
