Global platform allows U.S. customers from 32 states and U.S. territories to trade 13 cryptoassets with multi-asset trading to arrive in Q1 2020

New York, NY — March 7, 2019— eToro, a global multi-asset trading platform with over 10 million registered users, announced the launch of its platform and cryptoasset wallet in the United States. With the launch, U.S. customers with diverse levels of expertise can leverage eToro to collaborate with one another to find the best cryptoasset trading strategies in an environment rich with unconventional educational tools.

At eToro, you can share your real track record, portfolio, and trades with the community, allowing users to engage with each other on trading ideas that are executed using real dollars. For those new to crypto trading, the community and educational resources introduce users to this new asset class and the risk profiles involved in it.

Yoni Assia, Co-founder & CEO of eToro, said: “For the first time, Americans can collaborate with other crypto traders when making buying and selling decisions. Users can adjust their trading strategies by watching and learning from others on the platform. When I founded eToro, I envisioned a community where people could trade, invest and share their knowledge in a simple and transparent way. eToro also acts as a bridge between the old world of investing and a blockchain-powered future, helping our users navigate and benefit from the transition to cryptoassets for wealth building. People create the eToro experience and now Americans will play a major role in shaping our community and future. ”

Santo Politi, General Partner at Spark Capital said, “Since Spark Capital’s initial investment in 2012, we believed that eToro would lead the charge in disrupting the financial services market. We have watched the growth and success of eToro for the past seven years and, through Yoni’s leadership, the organization continues to innovate and thrive amongst the competition. eToro’s launch into the U.S. market marks a significant milestone for the company as it builds a leadership position in the online trading space.”

The platform’s CopyTrader feature allows users to allocate funds to automatically trade proportionally to the portfolio of another user. This allows users to easily gain exposure to a crypto trading strategy executed by someone who has a proven track record. Additionally, eToro’s CopyPortfolios feature bundles together assets under one selected trading strategy, curated by eToro’s own analysts. Within the U.S., three cryptoasset CopyPortfolios will be available to traders at launch. As eToro adds new asset classes to the platform later this year, additional CopyPortfolios will be offered. Any eToro customer with an established track record who meets certain eligibility requirements may be copied and compensated for their performance, subject to risk analysis and supplemental evaluation.

The highly-secure, multi-signature eToro wallet provides multi-coin support and a simple user interface, making it easy to send and receive supported coins. At launch, the eToro wallet will support BTC, ETH, LTC, BCH, XRP, and XLM, with more cryptoassets available in the near future. Users can log into the wallet with their existing eToro accounts and transfer coins from their trading accounts to hold them securely in their wallets. Within the wallet, users can convert between different coins with a click of a button. They can also easily and securely send and receive crypto through a QR code or by sharing their wallet address.

eToro U.S. Managing Director Guy Hirsch said, “eToro will play a lead role in transforming the financial services industry. We’re doing that successfully on a global scale and we are thrilled to finally be able to bring our offering to the U.S. audience.”

For more than a decade, eToro has been a leader in the global fintech revolution and a disruptor in the blockchain industry. eToro believes that in the future, all assets will be tokenized which will have a huge impact on global finance and, therefore, a major focus for the firm. To that end, eToro will be launching its own cryptoassets exchange, eToroX, on a global basis later this year. Blockchain has the potential to revolutionize finance and eToro believes that the greatest transfer of wealth ever will happen onto the blockchain.

Enmanuel (@big-profits) from the Dominican Republic has been in finance for all of his adult life. After reviewing several online trading platforms, he decided to focus on eToro, because of the platform’s ease of use and transparency. We asked him a few questions about his trading habits and strategies:

66% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with this provider. You should consider whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

  1. Tell us a little bit about yourself

I am Enmanuel Bautista from the Dominican Republic, owner of a leading online Latin loan company. I dedicate myself to the business of finance (personal loans) and trading. Since I was a child, one of my goals has been to be independent, and eToro has helped me achieve this goal. I have never been an employee and I have been in the financial business since I was 17.

  1. Did you have previous experience with financial investments before joining eToro?

Yes, I used to make investments in local banks and local exchanges. In 2010, I began buying my local currency pairs EUR/DOP and USD/DOP without leverage. After that, in 2012, I tested some online brokers (3 including eToro) with binary options and trading with leverage. Following a large loss with high risk trading…

Basic Income Earth Network welcomes GoodDollar into community as first blockchain-based project at UBI-Nordic

GoodDollar reached a key milestone in early April by becoming the first blockchain-based project to present at an international Basic Income Earth Network(BIEN) event. The general reaction at UBI-Nordic 2019, held in Oslo between April 5 and 7 and hosted by BIEN Norway, was encouraging, according to Dr. Sarath Davala, Vice Chairman of BIEN.

“I believe it was the first time anyone from outside our regular basic income community made a presentation about blockchain and universal basic income (UBI),” he said of GoodDollar’s appearance at the three-day summit, a key event in the UBI calendar.

Strong starting point: Dr. Sarath Davala, Vice President of BIEN, said that GoodDollar’s presentation at UBI-Nordic was encouraging

BIEN was established in London in 1986 by Belgian political economist Philippe Van Parijs, and for over three decades its group of progressive-minded academics has promoted the idea of UBI.

That GoodDollar was invited to speak at UBI-Nordic and introduce itself to the basic income community, was a landmark moment for the not-for-profit research hub, which explores how decentralized cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology may enable models based on UBI.

Like most members and affiliate projects within the basic income community, GoodDollar’s driving aim is to reduce wealth inequality – yet using a global-first approach. Dr Davala, the coordinator for India Network for…
