How to open a sub-account on the Bybit exchange

How-to-Create-A-Sub-Account-on-ByBitWhen trading on the ByBit cryptocurrency exchange, it is very often necessary to separate accounts in order to be able to install different robots on different accounts so that they do not overlap and each has its own trading balance. There is also a need, for example, to trade manually on one account, to put a robot on another, etc.

But in order not to register another account and meet the verification problem for another person, it’s easier inside your account on the exchange ByBit open several Subaccounts.
