Using and becoming a copyCAT

What is copyCAT?

copyCAT allows traders to follow other people's trades with zero effort, or earn from others following your trades.

When you follow a copyCAT, you make all the trades that the copyCAT leader does.

Trades will be made on your account, but it's important to note that the leader has no remote control over your funds - they cannot withdraw from your account. This permission to make trades on your account is revoked as soon as you stop following the copyCAT.

How to follow a copyCAT

Navigate to the BYBIT COPYCATS tab in the main tab bar.

To follow a copyCAT, click in the Following column.

You will be shown all copyCATs that are available for following. These can be sorted by any of the showing fields:

  • Leader name

    • If you are searching for a specific leader, you can use the drop-down box to find them

copyCATs with little trading history and a high leverage can be considered high risk. We recommend that you have your own risk limits in place if you select one of these.
