Are the algorithms regularly improved?
Yes. Our algorithms are constantly evolving as a result of our team working on them almost daily to improve not only their performance, but also to minimise risks and enhance security. We constantly rebalance the distribution of the wallets every month, in order to work efficiently in each new cycle.
What is CFT's investment strategy ?
CFT currently works only with the two top cryptocurrencies in the market – BTC and ETH. We also trade to a certain extent with LTC only on Spot Trading and not on Futures where we trade BTC & ETH for the moment. Our principle is pretty simple here – work with cryptocurrencies that have the best market cap and sufficient liquidity in the order books of platforms like Binance & FTX and offer us a seamless opportunity to carry out our trades. We have a much better control of our risk-reward ratio (RRR), which is at least 1:3 on these two cryptos and the “slippage” usually does not exceed 0.3%, when placing orders simultaneously for all our client accounts. The leaders in terms of daily liquidity/volume on the major exchanges are BTC and ETH, and therefore, in order to limit the “slippage” we need sufficient daily liquidity for optimal control of our trading management and risk reward ratio (RRR) and to deliver outstanding results for all our clients in the long term.
We also advise our clients against getting too excited with the sharp movements of many alt coins and stay focussed on the bigger picture with crypto assets with strong fundamentals. We always create strategies around assets that have a future perspective and are not just “hyped” by clever guerilla marketing or by random tweets by a celebrity. And although we are often asked by our clients (and many of our well-wishers) as to why we do not add alt coins to our trading strategies, we have respectfully declined to be drawn in and continue to maintain our fundamental principles. To understand why we stay true to our trading with BTC and ETH, please understand this.
Apart from the fact that they have great volumes and liquidity and make our jobs essentially easy, these cryptos are market leaders for a reason. Ethereum already owns almost all the cryptos in the sense that they are all hosted on its blockchain. This mere fact gives it an envious position in the crypto market as a leader, a title that is difficult to be removed anytime soon. It has a strong PoS which is characterized by its “ethical” behavior. Bitcoin, on the other hand, is an outlier. Although it currently does not have much use case, it is the torch bearer of the crypto movement. It was the first crypto asset to be launched and still holds a special place in the market and in the hearts and minds of every crypto enthusiast. It is also taken notice of by the non-crypto community and the first interest in the crypto markets are because of Bitcoin. Bitcoin remains the leader because of its speculative aspect and Ethereum has a certain future.
Are the crypto assets used going to change over time?
For the moment, the liquidity on the exchanges confirms that we should stay on with BTC and ETH. We are, however, open to future opportunities, if any, where we may consider other altcoins and integrate them within our trading strategy.
What is the money management?
As far as the investment strategy sharing is concerned, we make an allocation between the SPOT wallet and FUTURES wallets. Each month we decide on the allocation of clients’ funds between the different wallets.
What are PERPETUAL future contracts?
A perpetual contract is a special type of futures contract, but unlike the traditional form of futures, it doesn’t have an expiry date. So one can hold a position for as long as they like. Other than that, the trading of perpetual contracts is based on an underlying Index Price. The Index Price consists of the average price of an asset, according to major spot markets and their relative trading volume.
Thus, unlike conventional futures, perpetual contracts are often traded at a price that is equal or very similar to spot markets. However, during extreme market conditions, the mark price may deviate from the spot market price. Still, the biggest difference between the traditional futures and perpetual contracts is the ‘settlement date’ of the former.
CFT bets on price movements of BTC and ETH and trades in perpetual futures contracts. This enables us to realize profits not only when the markets are on the rise but also when the markets are going down. Our algorithms have been designed to help squeeze the maximum profits out of futures contracts and this is the reason behind our success against benchmarks.
What do I need to start trading with CFT?
Why become an agent?
An agent is just a client who would like to be more involved with the promotion of our stellar service. Our clients have found themselves recommending CFT to their friends and relatives. If you are our agent, you have the choice to decide the level of involvement you wish to have as one and an arrangement according to your needs can be made.
Can we speak to at least 3 of your current clients?
We would love to be as transparent as possible and it would be a great idea for you to speak with our existing customers. However, you will need to sign a Non-disclosure Agreement (NDA) before you do so. Moreover, to comply with European privacy laws we need our customer’s approval before we share their name and contact details. Once that is taken care of, you can personally contact any of our clients who give their consent to be contacted.
Are you open to partnerships?
Yes, of course! We are always looking to forge new, mutually beneficial partnerships. We wish to partner with individuals who would like to work with us as our esteemed agents. For more information on how to become an agent, please see this (page). We are also open to working with institutions who wish to benefit from our services as clients.
What is the durability of CFT?
Are my funds secured?
Absolutely. CFT is committed to the security of your funds and we ensure it through a non-custodial agreement with you wherein we are only allowed trading privileges of your cryptocurrencies which is enabled by an API that you set up from your existing exchange account (Binance / FTX). As a result, we have no control over your funds and we cannot move your funds without your approval.
What is the level of cybersecurity at CFT ?
We operate on our own platform and when installing the APIs of our customers, they are first encrypted and so the keys are no longer visible in case of a hacking attack.
Is CFT registered in the ORIAS file or equivalent?
Bulgaria is not a member of FATF. Our AML Policy has to be in accordance only with the Bulgarian law and the European directives. The simple fact that CFT does not have access to clients’ funds (CFT is not a custodian) but only sends trading signals on Binance / FTX to our clients’ accounts via APIs of our clients, exempts us, for the time being, from any license. If the regulation changes CFT will use its company in the Bahamas.
What happens if CFT gets hacked?
What is the minimum investment for DAM (digital asset management)?
CFT Group is currently accepting DAM investment clients with portfolios over $100,000 in value. We recommend Binance & FTX .

Only you can do that. CFT is working through API key – that means we have access only to watch and trade according to your API restrictions.
Our clients have 100% control over their accounts and can decide to withdraw their assets or part of their assets at any given moment.
Who can withdraw from my Binance or FTX account?
It is important for the PM (Portfolio Manager) to be able to manage the Cryptocurrency Portfolio independently in order to achieve the best possible results. Thus, during the term of this Agreement, clients do not have the right to carry out independently and without the approval of the PM any transactions and/or to withdraw assets or liquidity from their Cryptocurrency Portfolio. At any time after execution of the Agreement, either party may terminate the Agreement by giving not less than 30 (thirty) calendar days’ prior written notice to the other party.
Can we have access to the monthly profit of the amount invested?
As a client, you can monitor your P&L, balance and all other data via your exchange (Binance, FTX). You will also receive a monthly report by email with all details about the account. You can chat/call us at any time for any questions related to the management of the account. Other than that, you must contact the support of your exchange (Binance, FTX) as we do not have any access to client accounts.

The process for requesting withdrawals and for deposits
For withdrawals, we request you to notify us through an email before the monthly closing of your statement. The withdrawal date must be after the fifth day of the following month.
For deposits, we request you to notify us one week prior to the date you wish to deposit the funds to your account.
In both cases, CFT needs to know the precise amount that will be withdrawn or deposited (crypto or Fiat) and the day of execution. Finally, we request you to confirm that the withdrawal or deposit has been made via an email communication, so that all transactions can be verified.
We ask that you kindly follow these requests as it will help us in streamlining our methodologies so that we can service your portfolios without any issues.

What are API keys?
API stands for Application Programming Interface. An API is what allows us to access third-party services (such as exchanges). Your API keys authenticate you with these providers. We use APIs offered by exchanges to gather data and place trades. However, to check your balances and place trades we must input your API keys to authenticate requests.
How do I create my APIs?
A “Help” section will be available on each exchange to assist you.
- To obtain your API keys, log in to your exchange account. The API Settings will generally be available on the main menu.
- You’ll then have to set the permissions – the level of operability that the API key will have. The “Trade” permission will allow CFT to transact through your exchange.
- You can then click “Create API Key”. Copy and paste the API Key and API Secret Key and give them to CFT.
