To get started with the CF Stonks Market, follow the following instructions to register your account and start trading!
- Temporarily change your first name to "StonksCF-verify" in your CodeForces social tab at https://codeforces.com/settings/social
- Register your CF Stonks account at our Register tab
- Login your account at our Login tab
- Good luck, Have fun, and start trading!
- You are initially given 200 stocks of your own CodeForces account with $10,000 starting cash.
- Each person's stock is based on their current CodeForces rating, and automatically updated after each rated contest. However, note that promoting into a new division greatly increases the stock price (20% boost), so a Expert 1899 stock is much cheaper than a Candidate Master 1900 stock. The exact formula is
price = 1.2^rank * rating / 100where rank is the number of ranks above Newbie.
- You cannot buy a stock from an account that has taken less than 6 contests because it has not converged yet according to the CF rating system.
- Sell your stocks! Don't just hog all of your own stocks. The point of the game is to have fun :D, and there's no fun in only having your own stock.
