Cool if you look at it that way.. However, I support many that have already posted what I think on this.
It is a move that goes against everything they have preached about solving the peanuts problem by making it harder for good traders that are still trading peanuts to stop trading peanuts. Today, the lower limit for "serious equity" is 5000-10000. What about tomorrow? Could be 50,000.. Because some investors can still see 10,000 as peanuts.
Of course for a good trader on 1k who wins Darwinia and gets 30k allocation, it is still big money but imagine how stronger that trader would have been with the usual 300k allocation in 6 months.
We have been here long enough to know that the equity of a trader has nothing to do with their ability to generate quality returns.
If they wanted to punish people fighting for Drawinia winning with multiple small accounts, there are better ways to go about it such as limiting number of participating Darwins from one trader.
Anyways all of this, and all the noise that Darwinia generates normally, won't happen if the competition wasn't one of the top attractions for traders here.
Which is because investor money is extremely hard to come by even with solid results.. As the investor pool and their skill set to find (and stay!!) in quality Darwins improves, fewer traders will care about Darwinia.
Until then, shaking the one major attraction to Darwinex will always be like shaking the hornet's nest.
