1. RISK DISCLAIMER
YOU SHOULD BE AWARE COPY TRADING IS RISKY. BEFORE COPYING A TRADE, IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THE SPECIFIC AND UNIQUE RISKS OF COPY TRADING. COPY TRADING DOES NOT GUARANTEE ANY SPECIFIC TRADING RESULTS. YOU SHOULD EXAMINE YOUR INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES, FINANCIAL RESOURCES AND RISK TOLERANCE TO DETERMINE WHETHER FOLLOWING A PARICULAR TRADER OR COPYING A PARTICULAR TRADE WILL GENERATE YOUR DESIRED TRADING RESULTS. THE TRADERS YOU ARE FOLLOWING ARE NOT PROFESSIONAL TRADERS OR INVESTMENT ADVISORS. USING COPY TRADING SERVICES, TRADES ARE EXECUTED AUTOMATICALLY WITHOUT MANUAL INTERVENTION, WHICH MAY ULTIMATELY CAUSE YOU TO LOSE CONTROL OVER YOUR ACCOUNT AND YOUR FUNDS. IN SUCH AN EVENT, YOU MAY EXPERIENCE UNEXPECTED LOSSES EXCEEDING THE AMOUNT USED TO COPY A TRADE.
ANY PAST PERFORMANCE OF OUR USERS, RETURN ON INVESTMENT (“ROI”), PROFIT AND LOSS (P&L), WIN RATE, ASSET UNDER MANAGEMENT (“AUM”), AND ANY OTHER STATISTICS AND INFORMATION WITH RESPECT TO USERS APPEARING AS FEATURED MASTER TRADERS (AS DEFINED BELOW) ARE NOT INDICATIVE OF FUTURE PERFORMANCE OF SUCH TRADERS AND SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AS HYPOTHETICAL. THE ACTUAL PERCENTAGE GAINS/LOSSES EXPERIENCED BY INVESTORS WILL VARY DEPENDING ON MANY FACTORS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO: STARTING ACCOUNT BALANCES (DEPOSITS AND WITHDRAWALS), MARKET BEHAVIOR, THE INVESTOR’S ACCOUNT SETTINGS AND THE ACTUAL PERFORMANCE OF THE COPIED USER. IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT ROI, P&L, WIN RATE, AUM, OTHER STATISTICAL INFORMATION AND HISTORICAL PERFORMANCE ARE NOT A GUARANTEE OF FUTURE PERFORMANCE OF ANY TRADER. NO REPRESENTATION OR GUARANTEE IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. WHEN REVIEWING THE CONTENT, PORTFOLIO, FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE INFORMATION, OPINIONS OR ADVICE OF ANOTHER TRADER, YOU SHOULD NOT ASSUME THAT THE TRADER IS UNBIASED, INDEPENDENT OR QUALIFIED TO PROVIDE FINANCIAL INFORMATION OR OPINIONS. CRYPTO MARKET IS VOLATILE AND THE MARKET PRICE MAY CHANGE EVERY SECOND. ACCORDINGLY, REGARDLESS OF THE ENTRY OR CLOSING DESIGNATION, BITMART DOES NOT GUARANTEE THAT YOUR TRADE WILL BE FILLED AT A PARTICULAR ORDER PRICE/STOP LOSS PERCENTAGE AND YOU MAY LOSE MORE THAN THE ORIGINAL AMOUNT USED TO COPY ANOTHER TRADER.

- COPY TRADING ACCOUNT
- BitMart Copy Trading Service is a service that allows the users at BitMart Futures market (each, a “Copier”) to copy trades carried out by one or some of the other users in the Futures market (each, a “Master” or “Master Trader”). The Copy Trading Service is only available to users at the BitMart Futures market.

- A User wishing to use Copy Trading Service is required to open and maintain a separate Copy Trading Account either as a Copier or Master. Any reference of an Account in this Agreement shall mean a Copy Trading Account. A user cannot maintain a Copier Account and Master Account at same time. User may apply to upgrade a Copier Account to Master Account or downgrade a Master Account to Copier Account, subject to BitMart’s discretion.
- Copy trading involves automated trading execution whereby trades are opened and closed in your account without your manual intervention and further instructions. You may, however, manually modify or close an order generated through Copy Trading Services functionality and achieve a materially different result than the Master that you are copying.
- There is no minimum balance requirement for user to open and maintain a Copy Trading Account. However, copied trades are subject to the same minimum trading requirement applicable to other trades in Futures market. A copied trade in amounts lower than the minimum trade (as specified on our platform) will not be opened.
- If you are copying all trades which are currently open in relation to a Master you choose to copy, we may open your position at the best available price at the time the trade is copied and not at the price at which the trade being copied was originally opened; Unless you set the maximum slippage per order, your position may be opened automatically at a price different from the original trade being copied, and your trade may generate different result than the original trade being copied.
- You may choose to copy all future trades of a specific Master or only copy trades in certain trading pair in the Master’s Account. You cannot copy any trades in the Master's Account which were already entered into before this point. You should decide a fixed margin for each particular trade which, with the amount of the fixed margin for all trading pairs in your Account combined, is no more than the total balance available in your Account. By placing a copy trade instruction, you are authorizing and instructing us to execute trades for your Account that automatically mirror the Account of the Master to the maximum extent possible subject to your own fixed margin and limitations in the service or the copy trading functionality which may be disclosed in the market from time to time, without any prior consultation, consent or approval.
- A Copier may be unable to copy trades in exactly the same manner as the Master for the following reasons, but not limited to: such trade may be unavailable to you or your Account as a result of applicable law or otherwise; You have set a max slippage that stops the trades in event of price movement; your Master is temporarily or permanently disqualified or hidden at the point; the balance in your Account is lower than your fixed margin for the trade; the Master has removed you from the Master’s Copier list.
- A Master Trader may be temporarily or permanently disqualified or hidden by BitMart due to following reasons, but not limited to: as a result of applicable law or otherwise; the Master Trader violates this Agreement or the General Market Rules; the Master’s use of the Copy Trading Services involves fraudulent, illegal, or suspicious trading that subject the Master to BitMart’s risk control restriction; or other reasons in BitMart’s sole discretion. A disqualified or hidden Master Trader will nonetheless receive the Profit Sharing (as defined below in Section 2.3.1) for copy orders entered prior to such Master Trader being disqualified or hidden.
- As a Copier, you may set various order restrictions for copy trading, including the fixed margin that can be used towards a particular trading pair. As a Master, you are subject to restriction on the maximum number of Copiers that may copy your trades according to the asset balance in your own Account. The full restrictions are listed on our website and may be amended from time to time at our sole discretion. Open trades that are in breach of these order restrictions will be closed out at our discretion.
- Before entering into a copy trade, you will need to make sure there are sufficient balances of funds in your account to be put towards a copy trade. You will be able to transfer the funds from your Futures trading account to your Copy Trading Account. When there are no available funds in your Account to copy a trade, no copy trade orders will be placed.

The Profit Sharing payable to each Master is determined by the Master and may vary (“Profit Sharing Ratio”). You should carefully review the Profit Sharing Ratio in each Master’s profile page before choosing to copy a Master.
