by | Sep 14, 2020 | Crypto Trading, Exchange, News, Reviews | 0 comments

PrimeXBT Covesting is a new addition to PrimeXBT products. It is designed to help Traders and Investors increase their earning potential.

Professional traders already making profit can share trades for others to copy and earn a percentage of the profit he makes for others.

Newcomers/Investors can copy (follow) Pro traders automatically and earn consistent profit without doing the trades themselves.

In this post, I am going to show you how it all works and how you can increase your income on PrimeXBT today.

Let’s get to it at once.

Happy reading!

Who is PrimeXBT?

Prime XBT is a Bitcoin-based trading platform that offers leveraged trading of several digital assets.

Since its inception in 2018, it has grown exponentially with an average daily volume of up to $545,000,000.

On this exchange, you can trade Cryptocurrencies, Stock Indexes, Commodities, and Forex.

You can also boost your profits with the power of 100X leverage trading.

Its services include PrimeXBT trade, Turbo trade, different order types, and the latest one – covesting module.

For this latest service, PrimeXBT partnered with a reputable company, Covesting to launch it.

Covesting is a fully licensed distributed ledger technology services provider. It develops innovative trading tools to serve both retail and institutional customers.

I will not be delving deep into PrimeXBT and what it does as I discussed that exhaustively in the PrimeXBT complete review.

Let’s go on now to learn more about what PrimeXBT’s Covesting is all about.

What is PrimeXBT Covesting Module?

The Covesting Module is the latest service that PrimeXBT, a renowned exchange provides.

It is all about copy trading which involves following the trade moves of another trader.

Its beta version was launched in April 2020 through which the exchange got valuable feedback.

After fine-tuning and putting finishing touches on the module, it was fully launched on the 17th of August 2020.

Covesting allows experienced traders to set up and manage a Strategy (a pool of their own assets).

This strategy is made visible to the public and can be followed by others(new investors, other traders, etc).

This provides an excellent opportunity for both experienced successful traders and followers to greatly boost each other’s profit potential.

The person who creates a Strategy is known as a Strategy Manager, while those that follow a Strategy are called Followers.

I explained in detail how these 2 sets of persons earn in the subheadings below.

Let’s go see that.

How Does a Strategy Manager Make More Money Using Covesting?

A Strategy Manager is an experienced trader who. having recorded much success with trades, shares the strategy that brought about such success.

Creating a Strategy allows you to receive 20% of the profits made by your Followers.

Once created, a Strategy becomes visible to the public and available for following.

The Strategy Manager controls the trading activity of the Strategy they are managing.

I will explain further with this illustration:

Tega is a renowned trader who makes at least 10% profit from most of his trades.

After trading for some time, Tega decides to share his trading strategy.

He goes on to the PrimeXBT Covesting module and creates one that he called T-Smart Strategy.

In a week’s time, Tega has about 5 persons following his strategy.

Each of his followers has an initial amount of 0.5 BTC.

At a 10% profit rate, each follower is getting an extra 0.05BTC from each successful trade.

Since Tega gets 20% of this profit, he gets 0.01 BTC from each of his followers.

This means he will be getting a total of 0.05 BTC from all his followers for each successful trade.

Now you remember he still trades with his own funds. Let’s say his own initial capital is 0.8 BTC and he makes a 10% gain which is 0.08 BTC.

So Tega’s total earning after each successful trade is 0.08 BTC(personal profit) + 0.05 BTC(from Followers).

That is a total of 0.13 BTC per trade!

The more persons that follow Tega’s strategy, the more money he makes.

Let’s see how it works out for a follower.

How Does a Follower Make More Money Using Covesting?

A Follower is one who follows the strategy created by a trader.

Now a Follower may be someone who does not have time or even know how to trade.

PrimeXBT is saying that you don’t need to worry your pretty head anymore.

Just sign up and visit the Covesting module.

There, you will find a range of traders who have created strategies that you can choose from.

Go through the strategies checking out these details:

  • total profit
  • today’s profit
  • active days
  • performance
  • followers equity

When you come across one that tickles your fancy, you will go ahead and follow it.

Once you have done that, your account follows whatever trade the strategy is executing.

This way, you don’t even need to be present for the trade to go on.

You also have the right to stop following a strategy .

But you know the best part?

PrimeXBT allows you to follow as many strategies as possible!

This way, you get returns from the various strategies that you follow.

The profit from each trade is shared among you, the platform, and the Strategy Manager. Don’t worry, you are getting the lion share.

Note also that profit is distributed based on the size of a Follower’s initial amount.

The table below has the sharing formula.

PrimeXBT's Covesting

Let me further explain what I mean with this illustration.

Baridy, a busy bee, wants to get into crypto trading. So he signs up with PrimeXBT and goes to the Covesting module.

From the list of available strategies, he selects a strategy(let’s say he picked Tega’s T-Smart strategy).

He makes his initial deposit( say 0.4 BTC) and follows it.

So while Baridy is at the office working, Tega places a trade and of course, Baridy’s Covesting account follows suit.

The trade was executed and a 10% profit was made i.e 0.04 BTC.

So in this 0.04 BTC, Baridy is will do the following(based on what is stated in the offer table according to his initial amount):

  • pays Tega 20% i.e 0.008 BTC
  • pays PrimeXBT 15% i.e 0.006 BTC
  • and keeps the rest(65%) for himself i.e 0.026 BTC

Now apart from Tega’s T-Smart, Baridy is following 2 other strategies:

  • SureTrade that makes 20% profit per trade and
  • EXT-Prime that makes 5% profit per trade

Baridy’s initial deposits for following these other traders is still 0.4 BTC each.

So with SureTrade, Baridy makes 0.08 BTC in profit. He pays SureTrade 20% of it i.e 0.016 BTC, pays the platform 15% i.e 0.012 BTC, and keeps the rest(0.052 BTC).

For EXT-Prime, he makes 0.02 BTC in profit, pays EXT-Prime 20% i.e 0.004 BTC, pays PrimeXBT 15% i.e 0.003 BTC, and keeps the rest (0.013 BTC).

Assuming all these trades happen within a day, this will be Baridy’s take home for the day:

0.026 BTC(T-Smart) + 0.052 BTC(SureTrade) + 0.013 BTC(EXT-Prime)

= 0.091 BTC

So the deal here is: the more strategies you follow, the more money you earn.

Your money just works for you and you don’t get to do a thing!

Can I have multiple followings?

Yes, of course!
You can have multiple followings in multiple strategies.

If a follower cancels their Following, will my Strategy’s margin be affected?

Your Strategy’s margin cannot be affected by the Followings you have.

Can I add more funds into my active Following(s)?

For example, you started following BTC Monkey Strategy with 0.002 BTC as your initial amount. Now you want to add another 0.005 to it. PrimeXBT is saying you cannot do that.
Rather, you will have to start up another Following with the 0.005 BTC as your initial capital separately.

I dropped some tips on how to covest safely below.

You can check them out below.

Tips on How to Covest Profitably on PrimeXBT

  • Before you begin, check out the active days of each Strategy: If it is high, you can infer that the trader has not lost so much as to give up on trading.
  • Follow more than one trader: This way, even if one loses, you can still gain from the others.
  • Check that the Strategy you are following is a top-performing one and not some lucky chap’s Strategy.
  • Following the most successful does not always translate to success.
  • Reinvest your profits.
  • Never hesitate to close a trade

Above all, always do your own research to be sure you are picking the right Strategy.

Follow me now to this last section to round up this review.


Note that risk and possible liquidation are natural and common outcomes of trading with leverage. Anyone that is considering doing this should fully be aware of the associated risks and how to manage them properly.

To further minimize the risks that come with leverage/margin trading, PrimeXBT has lowered the minimum amount of leverage available to Strategy Managers to 1:50 on all assets offered on the platform.


This is the last part of this review. During the course of it, I took you through how PrimeXBT Covesting works.

I also gave a bunch of tips on how you can covest safely and profitably.
