Crypto traders, listen up! The summer games of crypto trade are back. Bybit is set to bring the 2021 edition of its World Series of Trading (WSOT) on August 18, 2021. The annual competition promises to be the world’s largest crypto trading tournament yet.
To live up to the hype of being the largest crypto trading tournament, the WSOT 2021 prize pool is up to a whopping 7.5 million USDT. Added to this, a bonus track of WSOT NFT collectibles and additional USDT are also up for grabs.
According to Ben Zhou, co-founder, and CEO of Bybit, “WSOT is returning bigger and better as promised.” He added more on the significance of the event:
We want to celebrate excellence and the spirit of competition, as well as shine a light on the positive influences of crypto on our daily lives — improving financial literacy, getting people interested in tech, and putting on top of mind ways we can be a force for change and give back to the wider society.
Last year, the flagship event attracted over 12,000 participants. This year, amidst the crypto boom and popularity, the event really has the potential to become the biggest ever.
