Becoming a leader in the Shrimpy social program is free and easy. After you have connected an exchange account, you are only a few clicks away from becoming a leader. Once you are a leader, you can start earning money for every follower you maintain. In the following images, the important areas will be highlighted with a red box.
First, visit the social tab, then click on the "Become a Leader" button on the top right of the tab.
This is the social profile page where you enter your Leader information, add tip jar addresses, add or change your profile photo and select the type of fee you wish to charge, if any. Before saving, you must select a name that has not been picked before by any other user. We also encourage you to provide a detailed description of your portfolio, strategy, or any personal philosophies you will be using to manage your assets.
After choosing your Leader name, adding a description for your profile and adding tip jar addresses if you have any, choose "Save and Continue".
Note: You cannot have the same name on multiple exchanges. If you have linked multiple exchange accounts and want to become a leader on multiple accounts, you must select a different name for each exchange account.
You will be required to select a profile picture in order to continue. You're able to either drag and drop a file directly onto the upload area or you can select a file from your device using the highlighted link in the screenshot above.
After selecting a profile picture, select "Save and Continue" once again.
By default, portfolios you create are private. This means that a portfolio will not be visible on the social page unless you explicitly make the portfolio public.
The next step is to select at least one portfolio that will be displayed publicly on the Social page by clicking "Add a Portfolio". Shrimpy users that are interested in using your service as a Leader will be able to choose from the portfolios that you have designated as public.
Once you have selected at least one portfolio to be listed publicly, you have the opportunity to name your public portfolio, provide a description of your trading strategy, set a recommended balance for followers, and set your desired fee structure. After doing all of this, select "Save and Continue".
At this point, your portfolio settings will be displayed for your confirmation. If you are satisfied with your settings, select "Save and Continue".
At this point you have confirmed the settings applied to your public portfolio. You now have the opportunity to set up additional public portfolios if needed, otherwise select "Save and Continue" for the final time to complete the process of becoming a Leader.
Congratulations, you are now a leader! You will be provided with a link to your Leader Profile which you can give to followers in order to provide direct access to your Leader Profile as well as buttons for easy social media posting to help you get followers quickly.
This page is your current allocations, stats, history and additional information that your followers will see when they look at your profile. You can also see your chat by clicking on the "Chat" icon in the very top header where you can also see your notifications. In the top right corner, you are able to stop being a Leader, share your profile, and view your profile as a follower.
Don't forget to communicate with your followers and keep them updated via your Journal, also accessed within your Leader profile. Get feedback from them, keep them up to date on any changes to your portfolio, and build trust by keeping an open line of contact.
