Updated this week

The COV Token

PrimeXBT has partnered with a software development company Copy Trading to offer its users Copy-trading module accounts. COV token offers a user-centric model that provides unique incentive schemes for all the members of the Copy Trading ecosystem.

COV Staking on PrimeXBT offers major benefits for users of CopyTrading module: Followers of Copy Trading Strategies and Strategy managers. Activating a membership plan by depositing and staking COV tokens will unlock various levels of utility benefits, based on the amount of personal tokens staked.

COV tokens can also be used on PrimeXBT as collateral for leveraged trading on a Margin account or a copy-trading Strategy account denominated in COV.

Available Utility Options

Staking activates all of the following 4 utilities of the COV token. The offered level of benefits provided by each utility will depend on the obtained membership – Advanced, Premium or Elite:

1. Reduce or Remove Entry Fee for Followings

This utility allows Followers to receive a 50% or a 100% discount on entry fees for all Followings.

Any Followings that are started while Premium or Elite COV membership is active will not be charged an entry fee. Followings that are started while Advanced COV membership is active will be charged a 0.5% entry fee instead of 1%.

2. Increase Followings' Profit Share

This utility increases all Followings' profit share (by 5%, 10%, or 15%) in favor of the Follower by decreasing the platform's profit distribution share.

3. Extend or Lift Individual Following Limit

This utility increases a Follower's maximum Following limit (x2, x3, or unlimited) per each separate Strategy.

4. Reduce Trade Fees for Strategy Managers

This utility reduces trade fees for all trades within a Strategy (provides a discount of 10%, 20%, or 30%).

To deactivate a membership plan and unlock COV tokens a Follower must first close all active Followings.

Additionally COV Staking allows you to reduce trade fees on COV-denominated Margin accounts.

This utility automatically provides an unconditional 25% discount on trade fees on COV-denominated Margin trading accounts, and does not require activation of COV Membership.

COV Staking

Staking COVon PrimeXBT allows users of Copy Trading module - Copy-trading, to gain access to exclusive benefits and utilities within the Copy Trading ecosystem by locking (staking) a set amount of COV tokens.

Based on the membership plan chosen – Advanced, Premium or Elite – a set amount of tokens are locked in the Wallet and the corresponding utilities are unlocked:

A membership plan and the associated utilities will remain active until the membership is deactivated by the Copy Trading user.

How to Upgrade a staking membership plan
