Replicating Paper Trades on Real Money Accounts?

With the end of live trading, I know several people on this forum have moved to attempting to replicate paper trades on their own real money accounts manually. Was just wondering if I could get some feedback on how the process has been going and whether or not it is worth my time as I would like to also start figuring out the best alternative for me.

Personally, replicating paper trades is easy as I use long term buy and hold ETF strategies. Quantopian is still invaluable to me for my specific need.

Do you think it would be viable for daily sell/buy orders?

I don't think so. Daily trading would magnify slippage, and your backtest and real trade would diverge very quickly.

Edit: Though I suppose it won't be an issue if you stick with limit orders and highly liquid stocks.
