Recap of Matrixswap’s 1st Trading Competition — Statistics, Winners, and What’s Next

Matrixswap’s first Trading Competition is in the books! A huge thank you to all of the traders that have signed up and participated for their chance at the prize pool. Over the span of two weeks, we’ve got a lot of tremendous feedback from everyone regarding our Perpetual DEX and we ensure we are refining everything we can before you start trading with real money.

Over the past week, our team has been reviewing all of the participants to ensure fair competition for those who joined our trading competition. Unfortunately, there were quite a few participants who have decided to trade unfairly. We have eliminated all of those participants from the winner's list.

Trading Competition Statistics

  • BTC AMM Volume — $152,492,016 USD
  • ETH AMM Volume — $47,087,447 USD
  • Total # of Traders — 526

~$200 Million in Trading Volume

During the two-week event, we’ve seen almost a total of $200m USDC in total trading volume for just two pairs — ETH/USDC & BTC/USDC! While our initial pair offering was ETH/USDC, most of the volume generated from traders was from BTC/USDC.

In terms of daily trading volume, we saw most of the volume being traded towards the last week of the competition and most during the last few days. While this trading competition was held during the holidays, we can only imagine that traders wanted to test their trading skills to stay ahead of the curve for 2022.


The total prize pool of this competition was 100,000 $MATRIX. After carefully reviewing the leaderboard here are the top 20 winners of the trading competition.
