Calling all traders,
Did you know that Phemex was launched on this day exactly two years ago? To commemorate our 2nd anniversary, we’re launching the 4th edition of our highly popular trading competition – Phemex Trader’s Arena! Come celebrate with us by choosing your reality and gunning for the top prize. Team up and battle it out for a prize pool totaling up to $750,000!
Teams of traders will compete against each other, and in the end prizes will be distributed to teams as well as individual traders. Previous PT Arena competitions only counted inverse BTCUSD contract trades, but this time almost all contracts available on Phemex (excluding inverse ETHUSD contract) will count!
The main prize pool and structure remains the same, but this time we’re adding an additional reward opportunity for participants who deposit funds into their contract trading account during the registration period.
Since nearly all contracts are available, each participant will end up with ROI on both their USD and BTC trading accounts. Whichever ROI is higher (in either USD or BTC trading account) will count towards the calculation for a team’s final ROI. For the individual rewards, results will be calculated using aggregate PnL across both USD and BTC trading accounts.
The stakes are enormous, so start exercising your trading muscles today!

Traders with enough influence to attract a large team can apply to become Team Captains here. All qualified traders can join the teams or captains of their choice.
A valid team must have at least 10 members. Any teams that do not meet this requirement by the time the competition begins will be disbanded. Members will then be randomly assigned to other qualified teams.
Team rankings will be based on the average Return on Investment (ROI) of each team’s top 10 traders. All participants will also be ranked and rewarded at an individual level. Unlike team rankings, individual scores will be based on Profits and Losses (PnL).
Information about how we will calculate the formulas for individual ROI and team ROI can be found on the competition page.
The final prize pool will be divided into two award categories: Team Awards and Individual Awards.
Team Awards amount to 78% of the final prize pool. The breakdown goes like this:
- The 1st Place Team receives 25% of the total prize pool
- The 2nd Place Team receives 15% of the total prize pool
- The 3rd Place Team receives 8% of the total prize pool
- The 4th-10th Place Teams receive an equal share of 30% of the total prize pool
- Captains of a winning team will receive 40% of their respective team’s award
- The top 10 team members of each winning team will share 30% of their team’s award equally. All other team members will share the remaining 30%
- If a winning team has less than 20 members, the captain will receive 40% of the team’s award, while the other 60% will be divided equally among the rest of the team members. Accounts with transaction volumes below 500 USD during the competition period will not be eligible to receive any awards
Individual Awards amount to 22% of the final prize pool. The breakdown goes like this:
- The 1st Place Individual receives 8% of the total prize pool
- The 2nd Place Individual receives 5% of the total prize pool
- The 3rd Place Individual receives 2% of the total prize pool
- The 4th-10th Place Individual receive an equal share of 7% of the total prize pool

A reminder to watch out for case sensitivity when providing your email address (it is case sensitive).
All perpetual contracts are available for this competition excluding the ETH-margined, inverse ETHUSD contract. All calculations will be based on the BTC trading account and USD trading account.
Once the competition begins, if a user’s BTC trading account net value is below 0.005 BTC or USD trading account net value is below 200 USD, the initial net value will still be calculated as .005 BTC or 200 USD respectively.
