The Sub-accounts feature allows the Crypto.com Exchange users to set up multiple Sub-accounts under their existing primary account (“Master Account”). It enables users to better manage their trading risks by implementing different strategies in each Sub-account.

Each Sub-account shows its own balances, margin, and positions, and users can use each Sub-account for transactions they wish to group together under that Sub-Account. Profit and loss are shown separately within each Sub-account.

At this moment, you can only access underlying Sub-accounts through your Master Account, and the associated Master Account password and login. The following table summarizes the key specifications of the Sub-accounts feature.

Segregation of Liabilities

The Master Account and all Sub-Accounts are still part of the same account you have with us. This means that provisions of our Agreement relating to liability and set-off apply across the Master Account and all Sub-Accounts. For example, if a margin top-up obligation in respect of a Sub-Account is not met, then we may have rights against any other assets, even if they are allocated to a different Sub-Account.
