As our Poloniex Futures: Beta Trading Competition comes to a close, we hope you’ve been able to test out your Futures trading strategy and get familiar with trading on Poloniex Futures. We’ve heard such great feedback on our beta and we’re excited to fully launch Poloniex Futures on August 4th! As we get closer to our full launch, we’re also getting closer to our first trading competition with a fully functional Poloniex Futures exchange.
From August 6, 2020 at 13:00 UTC to August 27, 2020 at 12:59 UTC, our customers can trade on Poloniex Futures and earn daily and overall prizes from a total pool of 80,000 USDT!
Before we launch out of beta and start the competition, we’ll clear out any existing demo money and Futures trading history from customers’ Poloniex Futures wallets. To clear our existing demo money and prepare for our full launch, we’ll temporarily suspend trading on Poloniex Futures following our second trading competition on August 4th at 12:00 UTC for about 24 hours.
