What is the difference between a permanent and a temporary trading account?

When you create an account, you are allotted a temporary trading account address. This account can be made permanent by adding either ETH or ERC20 tokens to your account balance within 6 hours

In the case where you are unable to transfer funds to this account within 6 hours, your trading account expires.

Once you are ready to transfer funds to your new temporary trading account, just click ‘create new’ account and you would be allotted another temporary account instantly.

Note: Each trading account is smart contract and their creation requires significant gas (high fees). Our goal is optimize gas usage in order to make sure we can continue paying for the fees and provide these accounts to our users for free.
