U.S. users can now automatically copy trades made by eToro’s top investors
Hoboken, NJ – October 29, 2019 — eToro, the global trading platform, announced the launch of its CopyTrader™ in the U.S., which allows traders to set their account to automatically copy all the trades of top-performing crypto asset investors on the eToro platform.
eToro users can access the Copy Traders tab in the app to select from a suite of Popular Investors available for copying. The pool of eligible traders includes crypto influencers like Nicholas Merten, the host of the DataDash YouTube channel, and #11 Ranked Welterweight UFC fighter Ben Askren. With over 1 million combined followers, these partners were specifically chosen to be copied by the eToro community for their role in growing and promoting the crypto ecosystem.
CopyTrader democratizes investment portfolio management for investors of all kinds. Trades are executed at the same price in real-time and in proportional amounts, enabling any eToro user to execute the same trading strategies of proven crypto investors. Users retain full control of their account and can stop copying a trader altogether at any time.
This new tool for retail investors is accompanied by a star-studded marketing campaign. To announce the launch of CopyTrader in the U.S., eToro partnered with Alec Baldwin on a series of ad spots to promote the feature. This intersection between crypto and Hollywood is a notable continuation of mainstream adoption of crypto.
Yoni Assia, Co-founder & CEO of eToro, said: “CopyTrader empowers the eToro community to collaborate in improving the experience of investing for traders of all levels of experience. Our traders are able to comment, share, and engage with each other in a way that’s unique across all asset classes. We built CopyTrader to bring the tremendous value of network effects inherent to social platforms into the world of investment advice.”
Crypto traders who are accepted into the Popular Investor program can earn compensation for being copied by the eToro community. eToro is dedicated to attracting top crypto traders from across America, offering advanced charting tools and social network scalability to help them further monetize their trading activities.
Guy Hirsch, US Managing Director of eToro, said: “CopyTrader can help anyone to build their wealth in a simple and transparent way. Users who want to leverage the crypto asset class can now simply look for an investor with a proven track record and just hit copy to execute the same trades automatically. CopyTrader allows users with less time or expertise to connect with users who have demonstrated capabilities in the trading space, all on one platform.

Bitcoin of 2020: On the Rise, Better Established, and Much More Stable
Why Bitcoin is Continuing to Climb, from More Solid Ground Than Ever
Last night saw Bitcoin once again soaring up the market, with a 6% increase over the course of three hours. This continues a fantastic start to the year for the world’s largest decentralized currency, which is up 30% since January 1st, and pulling along with it several other primary cryptocurrencies, including Ether, Litecoin, Ripple, and Dash.
A Significant Moment for Bitcoin
January 2020 is certainly proving highly significant for Bitcoin. The sharp increases and painful falls of the past pale into comparison with now, as the current increase seems to come from a far better-established position with much more stability. Furthermore, the activity around Bitcoin is expanding in exchanges, banks, and other financial institutions, together with its legitimacy and relevancy.
World Economic Forum
Last week, at the World Economic Forum annual summit at Davos, Switzerland, Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, and blockchain technology were honored guests. Many of the billionaires, bankers and treasury ministers who gathered in Davos are still fairly skeptical about the decentralized economy, but despite this, they also realize that they cannot stop it.
The World Descends into Chaos, And Bitcoin is on the Rise
It seems that the more agitated the world agenda, the more Bitcoin’s popularity grows, and strengthens its status as a…
World’s Richest 22 Men Are Worth The Same As All 325 Million Women In Africa — New Oxfam Report Reveals
The 162 richest people on the planet boast the same wealth as the poorest 50 percent — 3.85 billion — in the world.
From Tuesday, January 21, close to 3,000 delegates — including 53 heads of state — from 117 countries, will participate in the WEF summit in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland. According to the website blurb, the WEF Annual Meeting is “the foremost creative force for engaging the world’s top leaders in collaborative activities to shape global, regional and industry agendas at the beginning of each year”.
This year’s topic, for the great and the good of the business world and politics, is “stakeholders for a cohesive and sustainable world”. While the hellish fires raging in Australia fan the flames for climate change, the perverse irony that most of the 774 public speakers will have been flown into the summit will not be lost on the people who are truly concerned about the heating of the world.
Similarly, that many of the wealthiest people in the world will gather to no doubt use the WEF platform to further boost their richest, through additional business deals and contacts, while…
Cryptocurrency Prices Rally Towards Double-Digit Gains in 2020
The cryptocurrency market has started 2020 with a huge bang, expanding by an impressive 23% within the first two weeks of the year. The overall market capitalization of the cryptocurrency market – a measure of the size of the market – has grown from $192 billion at the start of the year, to well over $240 billion by the middle of January.
Leading the pack is Bitcoin (BTC), which constitutes more than 65% of the overall market size. Going from just under $7,200 at the end of 2019 to a high of $8,800, Bitcoin recorded double-digit gains within two weeks. January 14 saw a spike of more than 11% in Bitcoin’s price, fuelling speculation that the two-year-long cryptocurrency recession could finally be over.
Among the many factors that contributed to Bitcoin’s price increase was the geopolitical upheaval emanating from increasing tensions between the USA and Iran, which led to a flight of safety capital by investors, to safe-haven assets such as gold. Already established as a manifestation of digital gold, it seems hardly coincidental that the prices of both gold and Bitcoin went up.
Another catalyst for the increase was the official…
