Sports trading is also born in Italy, a tool to combat gambling addiction


Sports Trading

The figures are impressive in the Sports trading: sport in Italy has a turnover of around 96 billion euros every year and the betting sector, linked precisely to sporting events, represents 0.35% of the gross domestic product (years 2020 and 2021). Money that for the most part ends up in the coffers of bookmaker owners and in the coffers of the state and, almost never, in those of unsuspecting “players” dazzled by the possibility of a high payout, with little change. 

The techniques used by traditional betting shops and bookmakers are in fact linked to the provision of bonuses or to the increase in odds in a manner directly proportional to the number of events covered by the bet slip, without however specifying that the increase in events corresponds, in statistical terms, a lower chance of success of the bet.

Filippo Accorinti and Imtrader

“Sports trading -explains Filippo Accorinti, founder of Imtrader was born out  of the need to counter the social phenomenon of gambling addiction in sports betting and the hundreds of jackals who earn on the losses of their followers, Samaritan tipsterswho deliver free predictions to their communities on social channels, provided they register in one of the many betting platforms through their registration code which will give players an advantageous condition for the first few bets (refund on losses, increased odds, bonus ). 

What the player doesn’t know is that, thanks to this affiliate code, the tipster receives a percentage that is around 30/35% on the losses generated by the player registered under that code. 

Let’s take an example: if the magician guesses‘shares’ or ‘recommends’ a €10 bet to his followers – let’s imagine there are a million between instagram and telegram – and if that advice, which turns out to be incorrect, is accepted by around 50% of the followers, the bookmaker collects 5 million, but the tipster 1.5 million. 

That’s why the prerogative of those who give these ‘tips’ is to share a few indications that are successful. These tips have the same function as the hook”.

Sports Trading concepts

Sports trading, therefore, changes the paradigm by using concepts used in the financial markets (Forex, Commodities, Crypto) and completely revolutionizing the way of seeing and using sports markets. It operates not on a traditional bookmaker but on an Exchange (as happens for the stock exchange). 

A platform, 100% legal, with all the permits and licenses from the State Monopolies, which allows the exchange of operations between private individuals: “In this case – Accorinti explains again – the bookmaker merely acts as an intermediary between the exchange of operations decided by users, taking 5% on successful operations (winnings). 

This is the reason why this innovative form (although it has been around for almost 20 years) is neither adopted nor advertised by bookmakers. It’s easy to understand why: as an Exchange, 5% is collected on each successful operation, as a traditional bookmaker, on the other hand, 100% of losses. 

Furthermore, this system offers another important advantage to users: the possibility of exiting before the end of a sporting event, accepting a profit or loss, which will be dictated by the difference between the value of the entry fee and the exit fee. 

Fundamental in Starting Sports Trading

Obviously the mental part is fundamental in starting and continuing in this activity because you need to change the bettor’s vision and start seeing sport as a financial market and this is not easy for those who, throughout their lives, have done and continue to do betting”.

This is why the need arises for a guide and a scientific method to help users in this transition, with continuous support that can allow anyone to approach sports trading: “We have seen -continues Accorinti- the points in common with on the financial markets, but it must be said that there are some aspects that make sports trading even more advantageous than financial trading. 

For example, the tax aspect: the profits generated with the sports trading activity are taxed at source, i.e. it is the Exchange platform that pays taxes to the state on the percentage it collects from the exchange of operations, which means that what it arrives in the user’s pocket is net and without further burdens. 

Profits generated by financial trading activities instead have a taxation ranging from 12 to 26% with the obligation of declaration. But that’s not all: to start a financial trading business it is essential to know the financial markets, have strong knowledge of national and international economics and possess large capitals, things that are not needed for sports trading. 

Imtrader training sport trading

The only thing necessary is training, as happens in any entrepreneurial and investment activity”.

I’m trader is in this sense a never seen in Italy. Suffice it to say that in the football season that has just ended, Filippo Accorinti’s advanced path, called Club del Lupo , achieved a positive result of +209.19% from September 2021 to May 2022. ( www.imtrader.it/clubdellupo ). 

All this thanks to the strategies and tools (such as the Mymind analysis software) developed by Accorinti himself. The company’s goal is to make as many people as possible aware of this activity as an alternative or as a way out of traditional bets and, why not, also of online gambling addiction. 

Imtrader it also makes available to interested parties a free information consultation with a member of the team in which to dispel all doubts and curiosities about this little-known but very profitable world.
