What is “Demonetization”

The term “Demonetization” might seem intimidating or alarming to some users, but in the context of the Alpha Impact platform, it simply implies that the chosen profile can no longer generate subscription revenue.

This action does not indicate any guideline violation, nor does it result in a ban or removal from the Alpha Impact Platform.

 

Why do some traders “demonetize” their profiles?

Alpha Impact platform has been built to give traders the flexibility they need and some traders may choose to demonetize their crypto profiles for various reasons, including

  1. Build a good reputation first: It is advisable to establish a solid reputation before monetizing your profile. As the saying goes, “Quality is not an act, it is a habit.” New traders who aim to generate a substantial subscriber base may encounter challenges in attracting potential subscribers who seek proof of their trading and technical analysis expertise before subscribing. To showcase their abilities, traders may opt to temporarily demonetize their profile, demonstrate their skills, and re-monetize their profile once they have established a solid reputation.
  2. Become an Auto-copier: Monetized traders are ineligible to auto-copy other Alpha Impact traders. However, some traders may desire to learn from and auto-copy another top trader who outperforms them. To accomplish this, they will need to demonetize their profiles since Alpha Impact believes it is inappropriate for monetized traders to ride on other traders’ expertise to achieve popularity or increase their subscribers.
  3. Portfolio Management: Managing one’s portfolio in the crypto market can be challenging due to the high volatility and unpredictability of the market. Some traders may decide to divest their holdings to decrease their portfolio percentage and avoid a negative perception. This is particularly relevant when a trader holds a substantial amount of a specific cryptocurrency that has undergone a significant drop in value, causing a negative percentage loss, which can adversely affect their profile’s ranking on the leaderboard.
