We are excited to announce our Mad Lads Melee where Drift is giving away a Mad Lad NFT to a lucky trader on the exchange!

  1. Create a Drift account
  2. Trade a minimum notional amount of $2,000 USDC (combined volume across all trades and markets) during the competition period!
  3. If Drift crosses $15m in volume traded over the week, the top 5 traders based on volume will go into a draw to win the Mad Lad.

Grand Prize

A random draw will take place between the top 5 traders based on volume at the end of the competition period where one winner will be randomly selected during a live drawing in our Discord. The time for the  drawing will be announced in Discord on June 5th.
