Discover: What it is and what’s on the Discover Page?
What is “Discover”
Alpha Impact aims to make discovering top traders easy and user-friendly for all users. By toggling between “Traders” and “All users”, you will be able to choose to see traders in different categories or all our users on the Alpha Impact platform.
To deliver a good user experience, the Discover page “All Users” segment presents all users’ profiles but as you can see there are some profiles that you will not be able to follow/subscribe to.
This is to filter out content that’s not desired or that might create noise for our users. For example, some new users who do not connect to any public portfolio might show misleading information or recommend tokens that they are not holding, or even content without any context.
Alpha Impact believes that “Transparency is the key”. Many traders proclaim they are good traders by “showing” the screenshots of their “successful” trades only. It’s more than that. It’s about consistency in trading and most importantly, transparency in their portfolio.
So if you would like followers to follow you on the Alpha Impact platform, you would have to connect to exchange and publicize your portfolio first.
To learn how to publicize your portfolio on the Alpha Impact platform, you first have to select which exchange you would like to use first. Alpha Impact supports the following exchanges, Binance, FTX, FTX.US, and Kucoin.

Risk Adjusted Returns
Risk adjusted returns is defined as the ROI / Risk. Where risk is calculated as the changeability (volatility) of ROI. This is officially known as the Sharpe Ratio.
Understanding how the Sharpe ratio works
Under 1.0 is considered bad.
1.0 is considered acceptable or good.
2.0 or higher is rated as very good.
3.0 or higher is considered excellent.
When you compare the performance of a trader besides checking on the returns of their portfolio, you should also consider the returns generated by the amount of risk taken to earn these returns. “Risk-adjusted returns” categories are useful for comparing these factors.
Under “All Traders” category are all our traders on Alpha Impact. You can look for all traders here.
*Traders are users who connect their exchanges but choose to publicize or private their accounts*
