BitMEX, the bitcoin and cryptocurrency derivatives exchange announced for this upcoming week, they will launch a new $100K giveaway involving its BitMEX Neo (NEOG18) futures contract. The trader with the largest cumulative volume on the NEO contract by the end of the competition will win the top prize of $50,000 USD.
The start date will be Wednesday, February 7th, 2018 at 00:00 UTC and will end on Saturday, February 17th, 2018 at 00:00 UTC. BitMEX will take snapshots of the order book at frequent intervals throughout the competition. A trader will add to their quoted volume in each snapshot by taking the minimum of their quoted bids and quoted asks within 0.25% either side of the midpoint. BitMEX will then sum that volume in each snapshot.
- Grand Prize of $50K USD: The trader who continuously quotes the largest two-sided volume within a 0.5% spread gets the grand prize.
- Second Prize of $25K USD: The trader who continuously quotes the second largest two-sided volume within a 0.5% spread gets the second prize.*
