IDAP Master Account

Buy 1.25 million IDAP tokens and avail our Master Account

We are introducing yet another feature never seen before in the crypto trading landscape: the Master Account. Through the master account, a user can generate various sub-accounts that are restricted only for trading. Withdrawals and deposits will only be enabled for the master account, users of the sub-accounts will be able to trade but not withdraw or deposit any funds.

This will be beneficial to Proprietary Trading Firms that have hundreds of traders working for them. More so, the Master Account holder will be able to charge trading fees from their sub-account holders, encouraging establishment of crypto-centric trading firms.

As an added advantage, users holding 1.25 million IDAP tokens will not have to pay any trading charges for using a 'Master Account'. We are also partnering with many Proprietary Trading Firms to help them break into crypto trading through our Master Account functionality.
