What should traders know about the sub-account feature?
What is a sub-account?
A sub-account is a lower-level account that’s placed under your existing account (also known as Parent Account). All sub-accounts created will be managed by its respective parent account.
How to create a sub-account? *Please note: A sub-account can only be created and managed on AscendEX’s official website via a PC.
1. Log in to your AscendEX parent account. Click on the profile icon in the upper right corner of the
Home page and click on [Sub-accounts]. (Please note, sub-accounts can only be created under the
parent account with KYC level 2 verified and Google 2FA authenticated.)
2. Click on [Create Sub-account] in [Sub-account] page. Please note, each parent account may have up to
10 sub-accounts. If you need more than 10 sub-accounts, please initiate the request on this page (at
the very bottom right) or send an email to email@example.com.
3. Set a username and trading permission for your sub-account to be created. Click on “Confirm” to finish
the sub-account creation. (Please note, once you click “Confirm”, you will no longer be able to change the
username of the sub-account.)
4. You can check all sub-accounts created on the [Sub-account] page.
How to manage your sub-accounts within a parent account?
- Bind an email/phone and enable Google 2FA authentication for a sub-account. After that, you can log in to the sub-account and receive notifications via the email/phone bound to the sub-account.
- Phone/Email bound to a parent account cannot be used for binding to sub-accounts and vice versa;
- You can only log in to a sub-account or receive notifications via the phone/email bound to the parent account, if you don’t bind an email/phone to the sub-account. And in this scenario, the parent account mentioned above should have been verified by both binding an email/phone and enabling Google 2FA authentication.
2. You can complete the following operations for sub-accounts via their parent account.
- Freeze Accounts – Use “Freeze Account” or “Unfreeze Account” features to discontinue or resume a sub-account; (Closing an existing sub-account is temporarily not supported on AscendEX.)
- Password Modification – Modify the password for sub-accounts.
- Create API’s – Apply for an API key for a sub-account.
