Frequently Asked Questions
Can only businesses becomes affiliates?
We welcome both business and non-business affiliates.
If you're an individual, you can enter your individual details under the "Company Information" section.
If you're just referring friends and family, you can select "Offline" or "Other" for "Partner" Type. However, you will still need to link to at least one of your social media accounts or websites.
Note: Any referrals, even if done via "word of mouth", still need to use your referral link in order for us to be able to track it.

Once you submit the application form, it will be reviewed by our affiliate team. Applications are typically processed and approved within 1 to 3 business days.

Can I get custom terms?
The terms we offer are the same for all of our affiliates, whether big or small. We found this was the best solution while beta testing the program.
Our terms are very competitive in the industry. We noticed that competitors offer unfavourable terms such as:
✘ Discounts on trade fees instead of cash.
✘ Lower payout percentages.
✘ Payout percentages that decrease with time.
✘ Payout periods that expire within a few months.
✘ Regular performance evaluations (if you don't consistently refer a certain number of users, you get cut out of the program).
✘ Payouts to an exchange account instead of directly to your bank account.
✘ Payouts in altcoins or tokens that you may not want.
In contrast, we keep our terms simple and hassle-free.
