Ring the bell…The Currensee trader network is open for all Forex traders to join!

Today, we announced that our Currensee trader network – the first-ever Forex trading social network – is open to the public. For those of you who have been following our journey, you know that we spent eight months in our invitation-only private beta stage. Here in startup land, eight months seems to fly by more like eight weeks, especially when you are building the types of technology and collaboration features that take mere mortals years to build.

As I thought back to where we started, it seems like forever-ago that we invited 25 brave beta testers to try out our new idea for a trader social network. Our founders, Asaf and Avi, had a strong vision – they wanted to build a place where Forex traders could collaborate based on real trades and real data – but it’s hard to cook up a social network with only 25 people.  So we started inviting more, a few hand-picked Forex traders at a time.  And we started adding features and tuning our performance and analytics. We were lucky to have loyal and vocal members who spoke up when things weren’t working they way they expected or when they had a feature idea or suggestion they wanted to share. The product became more and more robust and more and more traders starting requesting invitations.

The Currensee team kept cranking out new features, programs, promotions, controversial videos and other Forex trader goodies. And, in just eight months, things are very different than they were on that chilly day back in February.  We have almost a thousand people trading together. We have an innovative product that combines the fun of a social network with the unique insights of strategies, performance and sentiment data…all based on the trader network. We started with members from two countries and supporting two brokers. In just eight short months, we have members from over 64 countries and support close to 40 brokers.

On behalf of the Currensee team, I want to thank all of our private beta members that joined before there was even a real product. We could not have come this far so quickly without your help and dedication to making Currensee a special place for Forex traders.

Today we leave the invitation-only private beta behind us and throw the doors open to the world.  We invite you to join our unique trader network and see for yourself what makes Currensee the place to trade together.

When my friends ask me about what makes Currensee so great, I always talk about the open collaboration we bring to the world of Forex. That we’re changing the game by giving all types of Forex traders the ability to connect with one another, see live trades and positions and share strategies, ideas, victories and their losses. We call it transparency and Trading Together is how we make it happen.
