Phemex Trader’s Arena IV, the 4th installment of one of the most popular crypto trading competitions, is coming up. During this fierce trading competition, several teams participate and battle for the ultimate prize pool worth up to $750,000.

By the end of this exciting event, there will be a prize distribution held for teams as well as individual traders. In the past, PT Arena competitions only counted inverse BTCUSD contract trades, but not this time. During PT Arena IV, all contracts available on the Phemex platform can be traded and counted.

Since all contracts are considered, traders may earn ROI on both their BTC and USD trading accounts. Any team’s final ROI is going to be calculated based on whichever is found to be the higher of the two (either BTC or USD). Whereas individual rewards are to be calculated through aggregate PnL across both USD and BTC trading accounts.

The prize pool and its structure will remain the same as previous PT arena competitions but there is an added bonus reward for those who deposit funds into their contract trading account while the registration period is still ongoing.

The Competition Format

Anyone can become a Team Captain by recruiting enough individual traders. Any trader who qualifies for the competition is free to choose to join any team and follow any team captain.

Teams must have at least 10 members. Any team that does not have enough members will be disbanded before the competition starts. Members then get assigned randomly to other teams.

The ranking of each team depends on the ROI of their top 10 traders. Other team members also get the chance to be ranked and receive individual rewards. However, individual rewards depend on profit and losses instead of the ROI.
