Limitations to sub accounts
In order to make sure that the assets in the main account are safe, sub accounts can therefore transfer funds to and receive funds from the main account only. The following are banned for sub accounts: C2C fiat currency trading, fiat currency loan, withdrawal from digital asset to wallet, using gatecode, points transfer, red pockets (in chat rooms and live streaming). Sub accounts cannot log in on Gate.io mobile app.
1. Handling fee discount
Sub account inherits the main accounts VIP tier and therefore enjoys the same amount of handling fee discount.
VIP tier of the sub account follows the main account. The transaction volume of the sub account adds to the transaction volume of the main account.
