The Last Broker didn't have any problems to send a cash equivalent to US Based Contestants, the reason this one won't send a cash equivalent is because,
-besides the fact that the rules state the prize is a funded account and therefore a 'US Citizen' is not eligible to open the ACCOUNT (NOT from RECEIVING A PRIZE!)-
the dirty little secret is, the broker does not want you to have the chance to KEEP the money because by giving you a funded account, they are betting that you will lose it all. so far a WIN WIN for the broker sponsoring this contest, and LOSE LOSE for myfxbook and the contestants.
Yes although I am sure nobody cares about the specifics because after all it is the BIGGEST PRIZE EVER, it's just too bad that probably nobody will get to keep it.
go with the flow; just be on the right end of the wave
