The next Star Beta Intervarsity Trading Competition will be held from 4th to 11th March 2019. The Individual winners will receive $1,000 for 1st place, $300 for 2nd place and $100 for 3rd place, plus the winning University will receive $1,000. Please contact the participating Society at your University to enter!

Yes you will be trading Bitcoin with a real live account on Bitmex.

Every account will be funded with a small amount of Bitcoin. You will be restricted to trading the Bitcoin Perpetual Swap product with a maximum position size of 0.01 Bitcoin.

The Bitcoin Perpetual Swap on Bitmex is the most liquid Bitcoin product in the world so we see it as the best product to trade in this competition.

The competition runs for 1 week from 4th March and finishes on 11th March 2019.

The winning trader will be the trader who has the highest account balance at the end of the competition and has completed at least 20 trades.

The winning University will be the one whose traders collectively make the most money. Each trader who completes more than 20 trades and makes a profit will have that profit added to the total profit of their University.

A leaderboard showing the position of each University and the top 3 traders will be updated at 6pm from Monday to Friday on this web page.

We give 100 accounts to each of the participating Universities. Please contact the relevant society which we have organised to manage the competition at your University to receive an account. The list is below:
