A Master Account has access to the full features of the Crypto.com Exchange and is subject to the terms and jurisdiction requirements of each feature. For the underlying Sub-accounts, features may be more limited. This section describes the key functionalities and settings associated with Sub-accounts.

If any of the following events occur, then there is an immediate change to all associated Sub-accounts linked to that Master Account:

  • Master Account KYC level is downgraded

  • Master Account is ineligible for certain features

  • Master Account is closed down permanently

For example, if a Master Account is ineligible for Margin Trading, then its underlying Sub-accounts will not be able to access that feature.

Refer to the tables below for more information regarding functionality a Sub-account could do.
