On the one hand, original portfolios are created from scratch and display a specifically chosen strategy.
On the other, copied portfolios are copies of originals that enable people who do not know much about cryptocurrencies to look for successful originals and copy them in order to benefit from the strategies at play.
Now, if a given portfolio turns out successful with record high profits, it might attract other users who – unable to come up with a successful strategy of their own – may decide to copy that original portfolio.
The portfolio created from scratch is the original portfolio.
The portfolio that is copied by a user is the copied portfolio
To be clear:
The creator of the original portfolio owns that portfolio – unless he decides to sell/send it.
The user who copies that portfolio owns the copy, NOT the original.
That original portfolio was created from scratch SO:
It is indeed the creator of that portfolio who will benefit from all the royalties generated at each copy – NOT the user who copied the original portfolio.
