Alphachain Academy’s Funded Trader Offer

Alphachain Academy’s Funded Trader Offer



In 2020, we here at Alphachain Academy funded over 500 traders across 60 countries. As if that wasn’t enough, we issued $4.7 million in funded trading accounts to brand new traders who joined our programmes.

And now we want to do the same with our funded trader programme. Our funded trader programme is open to those with prior trading experience, and if approved, we offer a guaranteed $15,000 trading account in exchange with a 50% profit share. If that’s not enough of an incentive, you can double your capital each time you hit a target until you eventually reach a $1 million traded account. 

No kidding.

An overview of our Funded Trader Programme

Alphachain aims to provide talented traders with complete financial backing through funded trading accounts, as well as access to a global community of traders to help traders grow their professional networks.

Candidates accepted onto our Funded Trader Programme receive access to a $15,000 funded proprietary trading account to begin their trading career with us. We’re completely transparent with our targets, capital allocation and incentives. And talking of incentives, once you hit the first 10% target we’ll double your capital, and then we’ll double it again, and again, until you could reach $1m.

You don’t need to be based in London either: All of our traders are independent contractors with complete freedom over where they work.

Assets We Trade

Under the funded trader programme, traders are able to trade a diverse range of assets. Choose from:

There are over 50 tradable assets with institutional spreads and commissions.

Technology We Use

All of our traders receive access to our bespoke Metatrader (MT4) trading platform. We provide a market leading institutional leverage of 1:100, and our traders don’t trade through brokers. Instead we go direct to major liquidity providers which ensures optimal trading conditions and fees for our traders.

Our trading accounts can all be linked with so that traders can analyse, evaluate and visualise their trading progress in real time.
