Here’s more about these milestones in the official press release:
Boston, MA – May 14, 2010 – Currensee Inc., the first Forex trading social network that connects traders from around the world based on real-time trades, today announced that it has reached the one million trade milestone, just over six month after the site launched in October of 2009. The one millionth trade was executed on Thursday, May 13, 2010 at 1:32 PM EDT by a Currensee member from Romania who went short EUR/USD.
“We’re quickly approaching 5,000 registered members and already welcoming traders from over 80 countries and supporting over 100 brokers,” said Currensee CEO Dave Lemont. “Along with achieving our millionth trade milestone, we’ve also reached over $30 Billion in trading volume, which is a tremendous accomplishment in such a short period of time. Every one of our members must have a live Forex trading account to join and our members tend to be active Forex traders who trade often and have come to rely on the daily collaboration with the other members of our social network. The explosive growth in trading volume, membership and trader activity puts us on an exciting path to significant scale this year.”
Currensee brings trust and transparency to Forex trading by enabling members of its trader network to see each other’s actual trades and positions, trading strategies and performance to make more informed trade decisions. In addition to announcing Series B funding, full MT4 support and the innovative new Tweet My Tradesâ„¢ feature, Currensee recently debuted the Forex industry’s first Trader Leaderboard. The Currensee Trader Leaderboardâ„¢ ranks top Forex traders based on both historical and real-time performance, along with a proprietary performance authority and risk index. The Trader Leaderboard ranking system is a key element of the Currensee Trade Leadersâ„¢ investment program, which will launch later this year, enabling experienced Forex traders to be compensated for successful trading and allowing retail Forex traders to follow their trades.
In April, Currensee added new investor Vernon & Park Capital LP, which in addition to investments from North Bridge Venture Partners and Egan-Managed Capital, brings the Currensee total funding to $12.8 Million.
