Leaderboard Calculations

The calculations for Equity as well as Individual PnL% are as follows:

Equity = Balance + Unrealized Profit and Loss

Individual PnL% = [Final equity - (initial equity + deposit during the competition) ] / (initial equity + deposit during the competition)

  • Note: Trading fees and funding fees are NOT included in the Individual PnL calculations

Any conversion from USDC/axlUSDC/BUSD to USD, spot trading, withdrawal of liquidity, deposits or transfers of USD resulting in an increase in your USD available balance will affect your initial equity. We therefore encourage a separate account for participation in this competition. Example for calculating initial equity:

  • User deposits 500 USD -> Initial Equity = 500 USD

  • User removes liquidity of 300 USD from a liquidity pool -> Initial Equity = 800 USD (500+300)

  • User receives internal transfer of 200 USD -> Initial Equity = 1000 USD (800+200)

  • User withdraws 250 USD -> Initial Equity = 1000 USD (Negative outflow does not affect the initial equity)

Hence, all positive inflow of USD will affect your initial equity, while negative outflow will not. Initial Equity is calculated at the start time of the trade.
