The year 2018 was a busy time for us. The company and its products underwent a number of developments on both corporate and technical levels, resulting in continuous growth and, most importantly, recognition of our efforts among traders, brokers and the public.
A number of cTrader updates were carried out with an aim to improve the usability of the platform and enhance the overall trading experience by adding new features and tools requested by traders and brokers. The platform underwent also the major changes in terms of look and feel by upgrading the side menu and adding the ASP panel thus improving the navigation inside the platform and becoming more symbol centric. In addition to that, it also introduced the all in one experience by adding algorithmic and copy trading services to the platform, cTrader Automate (cAlgo) and cTrader Copy respectively. The cTrader Mobile was also upgraded with several updates of the new app that was developed from scratch last year.
The launch of cTrader Copy was a major highlight of the year, as this is a truly innovative platform that combines the benefits of both copy trading and PAMM, thus becoming a versatile investment platform for anyone willing to become an Investor or a Strategy Provider.
It is also worth to mention the launch of the new cTrader ID site. This was done in conjunction with the shift to cTIDs authentication only. Now users can enjoy a number of benefits of a single login, as well as exclusive features and tools.
On the corporate side, there was a major change in the leadership team with an appointment of Alexander Shulman as CEO of Spotware and Andrey Pavlov becoming the President of the company.
What’s more, in 2018, we received two prestigious awards. cTrader was recognized as the Best FX Trading Platform at the London Summit 2018 Awards. It also received an award for the outstanding implementation of ISO 27001:2013 related to the Information Security Management System it employs.
New Product Launch
The year 2018 was also notable because we added a new flagship product, cXchange, in our portfolio. Our expertise in capital markets space helped us to enter the cryptocurrency market with a premium digital asset exchange solution that allows businesses to launch their own exchanges. cXchange has received a number of positive reviews including the article by a reputable cryptocurrency source, Cointelegraph.
Soon after the launch, Alexander Geralis took the position of the Chief Product Officer of cXchange. In addition to overseeing the product development and helping businesses launching their own exchanges, Alexander also attends cryptocurrency and blockchain events, such as the Blockchain Innovation & Investment Summit in Dubai and the United Conference of Internet Money in Singapore, as well as runs regular series on BloxLive TV.
Last but not least, cXchange was integrated with BitGo, the leading custodial solutions provider for blockchain-based currencies, thus adding additional levels of security and more coins available to trade. This was followed by onboarding our first client, Bokka exchange, which used the cXchange solution to build its cryptocurrency exchange.
We hope the year 2019 will be as exciting as the previous year and will bring even more benefits for our clients and users!
