• SUPERALGOS
    An open source project implementing a framework to disrupt the reigning active investments model.

  • THE STATUS QUO
    No one shares their know-how, putting a cap to evolution and entry barriers to trading technology.

  • OUR APPROACH
    Challenge the silos with a global collaboration evolving a collective trading intelligence.

We started out as a group of friends.

We'd had enough of making millions for banks and corporations, and saw the opportunity to join forces to create technology that would benefit us instead.

The core idea was to automate our crypto trading to increase our own crypto assets.

Then people started joining us, and we quickly realized we needed to broaden our focus...

Our current mindset is to allow everyone to benefit, particularly those willing to participate in pooling the group's collective knowledge, teaching each other, and building—together—the tools that would produce the most performant collective trading intelligence.

—Luis Molina, Founder

The Superalgos Project

Our Quest in Five Bullets
  • We are an open collaboration of traders, developers, entrepreneurs and experts in various fields.

  • Our long-term vision is a global collective trading intelligence at the service of all people.

  • Our network shall be decentralized, permissionless, open source and trustless.

  • Our short-term focus is building tools for everyday traders, which shall be free to use.

  • As the project grows, these tools shall evolve into a professional-grade asset management suite.

Superalgos Trading League

Why We Compete

A glimpse into the existing model and the Superalgos alternative

The Status Quo

Investment companies keep trading technology in absolute secrecy. The assumption is made that this gives them an edge over other market participants. It is also assumed that AlgorithmsRefers to trading algorithms; pieces of software automating trading strategies. lose performance when used too broadly. Even within a company, specialists work alone or in small groups. Evolution of trading intelligence is therefore capped by the intelligence of small groups.

Our Open Evolutionary Approach

A global collective creates Algorithms and puts them to compete for prize money, reputation and for fun! After each CompetitionRefers to trading competitions; events in which Algorithms and human traders compete to determine the top performers under certain rules.

Roadmap

The Path to Reorganizing Trading Intelligence

The Superalgos ProjectAn open community together with its body of work, implementing a framework to enable a superior trading intelligence evolving within an open global collaboration of humans and machines, at the service of all people. stated with founder Luis Fernando Molina, a visionary entrepreneur, systems architect, with a track record in fintech developing mission-critical systems for banks. Together with his brother Julian, they set up a Core Team that helped deliver an MVP by October 2018.

The story of the inception of the project was documented by the brothers in a series of two articles published in Hacker Noon: Superalgos & The Trading Singularity, and Superalgos: Building a Trading Supermind.

The MVP was delivered in pre-alpha stage in October 2018, consisting of a platform enabling running bots in the cloud and on the browser, in live trading, competition and backtesting modes. It included running basic competitions, handling users, teams and API exchange keys.

It also included several bots, with a sensor connected to Poloniex, several indicators and a trader. The platform featured a visualization engine rendering bots' actions and datasets over a graphic timeline. Debugging of code and strategies over the timeline was done directly in the browser.

Strategizer: Demo version coming soon!

We are very close to launching an alpha-stage demo version of the Strategizer, a tool that enables traders with little programming skills to define and automate complex strategies.

The tool offers pre-programmed strategies configurable via a GUI. Users may see the results in (almost) real time through a built-in simulation engine with historical and head-of-the-market data.

We expect the user experience to evolve until no coding skills whatsoever are required.

In addition, the Strategizer supports plugging in any number of strategies that programmers may develop, and enable the GUI-based configuration of those strategies too.

In the long term, the Strategizer will evolve into a complete suite of configurable strategies working under the coordination of a Central Command Algorithm. Strategies in the suite will cover all sorts of market conditions, and will implement risk management and capital allocation criterion to automate the management of assets.

The Superalgos Node is a standalone version of the Superalgos PlatformThe collection of software and tech-infrastructure that enables the hosting of Competitions and the Marketplace, developed by the Superalgos Project which runs distributed on independent instances referred to as Superalgos Nodes in the Superalgos Network. carrying the StrategizerA tool built into the Superalgos Platform offering pre-programmed strategies, configurable via a GUI. Users may see the results of configuration in (almost) real time through a built-in simulation engine, with historical and head-of-the-market data., which will be made available for download to be deployed on self-hosted servers, removing the requirement to trust us with your Exchange API Keys.

Within the Superalgos Node, users may live-trade with the strategies tuned through the GUI in a fully automated fashion—autopilot—or in an assisted mode.

Also to be released with the node, a mobile app acting as the users' cockpit will be connected to the AlgorithmRefers to trading algorithms; pieces of software automating trading strategies. placing the orders, allowing traders to confirm or decline signals before execution, or even place manual orders.

In future iterations this app will be used as a tool for the trader to teach the bot new conditions or refine the existing strategies at runtime.

The Superalgos ProjectAn open community together with its body of work, implementing a framework to enable a superior trading intelligence evolving within an open global collaboration of humans and machines, at the service of all people. aims to issue ALGO Tokens making them available to the public by means of rolling Micro Exchange Offerings (MEO), through a network of partner ExchangesWhile Competitions, Algorithms and the Marketplace run on the Superalgos Network, the actual trading occurs directly at Digital Assets / Crypto Exchanges..

The main purpose of the Superalgos Network is to remove trust requirements by allowing all stakeholders to run their own instances of the Superalgos Platform.

Anyone may download the Superalgos Node and deploy it in their own server, becoming a Node Operator.

Node Operators may run the software for their own use or offer a hosted solution for users who chose to trust the operator (with their Algorithms' code and / or Exchange API Keys).

Superalgos Nodes work mostly on a stand-alone, independent basis in terms of their core activities, but may speak with each other to consume data and services from other nodes, and to relay relevant network information.

The data and services offered among nodes may be black-boxed (offered on an input / output basis, without revealing how the output is obtained) and sold for micro fees, payable in ALGO TokensThe ALGO Token is the medium of exchange within the ALGO Ecosystem by which stakeholders transfer value in exchange for products or services.

in between Algorithms. The transactions may include indicator data, signals or any form of trading intelligence that lives distributed across the network.

Exchanges shall give back discounts on transaction fees charged on the network's bundled trading volume, constituting a significant incentive to run Algorithms within the network instead of running them otherwise.


 

The Superalgos ProjectAn open community together with its body of work, implementing a framework to enable a superior trading intelligence evolving within an open global collaboration of humans and machines, at the service of all people. is developing the system to run an elaborate multi-league tournament designed to promote evolution towards trading increasingly larger value in assets.
