How to get started with the Funded Traded Program?
Getting started is easy. First you choose your desired challenge be it standard or rapid challenge. Once you select. Fill out your details and desired payment method. You can also pay by cyrptocurrencies (also you will get discount with it). Their cyrpto payment method is powered by coinbase.
Then after you tick TFT’s terms and conditions, refund and dispute policy, you click to proceed to coinbase which will take you to the next payment page.
When paying with cyrptocurrency you will have 1 hour to finish the transaction as shown on the image top right hand corner. Just click on the where it says pay with coinbase with your desired payment currency. In this case I choose USDC stable coin.
Now you will be given an USDC address to send the payment. Just scan from mobile phone. I used Binance here.
After scanning the barcode, for some reason the address is populated with extra length.
Just delete the other and make sure the address is correct before you send. Double or even triple check. Also don’t forget to consider the fee. Also I chose ERC20 as a network. Coinbase use ERC20 network. So hence the extra $10 network fee.
Once you are happy to proceed press confirm.
Click on confirm.
Finish the 2 factor authentication.
Wait for the withdrawal to be processed.
After a few minutes a new page will load. You can click on view payment or continue.
And voila that’s it. Challenge purchase done.
Once the payment has been received by TFT. You will get your account login credentials. In my case, I received account in 1 minute. That’s the fastest compare to any other funded trading accounts.
This is is the inside of TFT trading dashboard. It’s pretty self explantory.
