How are the winners calculated?
The winners are calculated using our proprietary artificial intelligence (AI)-MMR ranking algorithm, which takes into consideration not only profitability but also risk management, long term stability, risk-adjusted returns, draw-down levels and longevity to match contenders with comparable skill levels and stacks them against each other. We allocate dynamic weighting to key metrics such as total return, winning percentage, sum profit VS sum loss, maximum drawdown, sharpe ratio, calmar ratio and of course standard deviation.
