The sub-account feature allows anyone to create several accounts within one main account to better keep track of investments or to follow different trading strategies independently.
Businesses can use sub-accounts to set up multiple accounts within a single organization providing their employees with controlled access and limited control. Sub-accounts can serve to separate funds for cryptocurrency trading and funds can easily be transferred from master to sub-accounts and vice versa.
The master account is simply a regular user account that has been assigned a list of several sub-accounts.
The sub-account feature includes:
- Creation of up to 500 sub-accounts
- Overview of trading activity across all sub-accounts
- Free transfer of funds between sub-accounts
- Full control of sub-accounts: separate 2-FA for each account, removal of API keys, orders, and passwords, ability to freeze specific sub-accounts, and more
- Verification level and withdrawal fees will automatically be inherited by sub-account when the master account is updated.
What’s required to create a sub-account?
- The sub-account should be registered to a new email
- Every sub-account has to be set up with a proprietary 2-FA
- Before trading, sub-accounts will have to transfer funds from the main account to the trading account.
