• Driving Evolution Towards Trading Increasingly Important Value

Trading League Structure

Alpha version ETA: Q4, 2019

The following description corresponds to an envisioned league structure that is not yet implemented. Current Alpha-stage Competitions are structured similar to the 10th Division in the below table.

CompetitionsRefers to trading competitions; events in which Algorithms and human traders compete to determine the top performers under a given set of rules.

are structured in a multi-layer league system designed to drive evolution towards trading increasingly important value in assets and / or capital.

The Superalgos Trading League is split in two: Minor League and Major League. Each league is subdivided in divisions.

Each division runs longer Competitions with increasing capital requirements and larger awards in prize money. Algo-MakersA subset of the Community counting professional and amateur traders, developers and analysts, organized in Teams, commited to create, develop, maintain and promote the evolution of Algorithms. who compete well in minor divisions may chose to discretionarily move to upper divisions.

The following table shows the structure of the league as it is currently envisioned

Core Features

  • Each ExchangeA trading platform for crypto-assets. While Competitions, Algorithms and the Marketplace run on the Superalgos Network, the actual trading occurs directly at Exchanges. runs its own league.

  • Competition events across all participating Exchanges run exactly at the same datetime. This helps competing Algo-MakersA subset of the Community counting professional and amateur traders, developers and analysts, organized in Teams, commited to create, develop, maintain and promote the evolution of Algorithms. to plan ahead and participate in multiple Competitions across different Exchanges.

  • It also allows the audience to enjoy Competitions and keep track of them across different Exchanges.

  • Community members gain free access to a wealth of knowledge and trading technology, including state-of-the-art StrategiesA set of actions occurring in stages, designed to achieve a specific goal within a broader plan, via executing trades. In the context of the Superalgos Platform, Strategies are designed with the Strategy Designer, a module available within the charts (click CHARTS in the Superalgos Platform menu). Strategies may be turned into Algorithms—trading bots able to trade live—by using the Clones Module). and AlgorithmsRefers to trading algorithms; pieces of software automating trading Strategies..

  • Adding value by improving the ecosystem's Algorithms is decisively incentivized. Competition winners may multiply their capital several times depending on the division they chose to compete in.

  • Prize money for the winner of each division added to the original capital requirement is enough to meet the capital requirement of the immediate higher division, promoting mobility across the league.

  • At the end of every Competition, the winning Algorithms are open-sourced within the Community in order to enable the upgrade of the ecosystem's intelligence. This allows Algo-Makers to use the state-of-the-art as a starting point for building the next generation of Algorithms for the next Competitions to come.
