Professional tournaments

Professional tournaments
form the backbone of the Stockus game. The main
task of professional tournaments is to create an alternative
platform for the exchange market. Tournaments
vary by:
• Duration (day, week, other)
• Type of prize fund
(guaranteed (GPP), unlimited, mixed etc.)
• Number of participants
• Ways of distribution of the prize fund
• Set of trading instruments.
Players participating in professional tournaments
pay an entry fee (buy-in) for participating in the
tournament. In different tournaments, buy-in has
different uses. The buy-in varies from a few dollars
to a few hundred dollars.
Currently, Stockus platform operates two professional
tournaments: DFT (Daily Fantasy Trading)
and WFT (Weekly Fantasy Trading).

The main trading instruments available to players on the Stockus platform: shares, futures, currency pairs, options, indices, etc. At the same time, players can display up to five instruments on their screen and monitor them. Players can analyse the data. Furthermore, players can choose different time frames ranging from 1 minute to 1 month. In addition, the platform provides players with historical data about instruments.

After the end of the tournament, the positions of all players participating in the tournament are forcibly closed. Top players are updated. The better the player’s achievements in the tournament, the higher the place is achieved at the TOP. The results of the tournament look like this:

The prize fund of the tournament is distributed among the players depending on the place they take, the way the prizes are distributed and the amount of the prize fund. On the tournament page, the data with the nickname of the player and the amount to be paid are published. This amount is transferred to player’s Token Account.

In DFT and WFT tournaments, the classical matrix is used to distribute prizes. Here is an example of the classic prize distribution matrix used in one of the professional Stockus tournaments:

What’s next?
