*Notes: Bitget copy trading updates: Bitget elite trader tiers

*The maximum profit share ratio in the table above refers to the maximum profit share ratio that elite traders can set (not in private mode). Elite traders can go to the Personal Settings on the personal elite trading page to modify profit share ratio after the upgrade of the profit share rules.

*To incentivize elite traders to provide higher-quality and more professional copy trading services, the new profit share rules are changing the benchmark for the profit share ratio and significantly increasing the maximum profit share ratio of the tiers. For example, elite traders of the highest tier (Legend) can enjoy a profit share ratio as high as 20%. The maximum profit share ratio is limited to 10% and subject to the BGB lock-up in the old rules.
