Participants can register for the competition from now until May 20, at 2 am UTC, while the actual competition will take place from May 20, 2 am UTC, to June 10, 2 am UTC.

Since registration for KCGI 2022 has officially started, a record number of close to 500 registrants was recorded, representing a positive response from the community for the long-awaited return of this trading competition. Following the momentum of last year’s popularity, the prize pool for KCGI 2022 has been doubled to 200 Bitcoin (BTC). Apart from financial prizes, a variety of gifts are also up for grabs, including Bose speakers, folding bikes, premium gaming chairs, LG StanByMe display screens and more.
