You can also paper trade through Interactive Brokers (IB).
You can set up a paper trading account at IB, then use the same path Vladmir shows, but in the last step link to the paper trading IB account instead of Quantopian.

Also look at the Frequently Asked Questions - Live Trading - "How do I create an IB demo account to paper trade?"
