• The Project in 20 Slides

The Context

The world continues the relentless shift towards automation. In the Financial Industry, investment firms leverage their deep pockets to gain an edge over other market players.

  • Firms develop and keep market research and trading automation technology in absolute secrecy.
  • They dominate the markets with sophisticated algorithms and powerful market analysis.
  • Few hands concentrate the ability to produce top trading intelligence.

The Problem

For trading intelligence to emerge, vast technology infrastructure is required. The technology puzzle is too complex for individuals — or even small groups — to solve. Commercial platforms are in the business of extracting value from users and can't produce competitive intelligence.

  • Complexity: Some offer simplistic approaches that don’t work — trading is not simple.
  • Fragmentation: Some offer highly specialized tools with a very narrow focus and scope.
  • Black Boxes: Some are closed-source, proprietary platforms, introducing third-party risks.
  • Trust: Some require trusting exchange keys, funds, strategies, or personal details.

As a result, retail traders compete with suboptimal tools, at a significant disadvantage.

  • The Superalgos Hack

    A contributor-centric community devised, nurtured, and incentivized with the project's native token to grow into a massive trading collaboration.

The Solution

Join forces to develop the technology infrastructure required for trading intelligence to emerge while deploying the correct set of incentives to foster massive collaboration.

  • A platform for technical users optimized for power, flexibility, scalability, and collaboration — not simplicity.
  • A disruptive business model with free, open-source, trustless software and trading intelligence.
  • A native token incentivizing contributions of code, intelligence, and project development.
  • A P2P network boosting collaboration and enabling the decentralized dissemination of intelligence.
  • A mobile trading bot app for the mass market consuming intelligence from the network.

The Strategy

Trading is complex. We tackled complexity with a progressive approach solving challenges in a logical order, developing solutions in sequential phases.

  • Phase 1: Conquer the open-source space to attract developers who may extend the system.
  • Phase 2: Enable massive collaboration to accelerate development to neck-breaking speeds.
  • Phase 3: Expand to the mass market by making quality intelligence accessible and usable.
  • Phase 1: Conquering Open-Source

    We delivered the most powerful and flexible market research and trading automation infrastructure to attract technical users, who drive evolution.

Laser Focus

Starting with a narrow focus and delivering a solution to the specific pains of a particular community was key to attracting early adopters.

  • We started with a narrow focus — retail traders in crypto markets.
  • We concentrated on the niche of developers and technical users in general.
  • We are now one of the largest open-source trading automation projects in the world.
  • Searching for 'trading bots' on Github.com shows our current standing.

The Superalgos Platform

Superalgos provides the powerful, flexible, and scalable technology infrastructure required for trading intelligence to emerge.

  • Powerful data-mining and zero-coding custom data visualization.
  • Sophisticated visual design, visual testing, and visual debugging of strategies.
  • Training and consumption of Machine Learning models (TensorFlow integration).
  • Flexible and powerful multi-exchange, multi-market trading execution.
  • Scalable deployments of bots across networks of physical or virtual machines.

Disruptive Business Model

Superalgos is a user-centric platform by the people, for the people. Commercial companies can't compete because...

  • It's free so that the monetary cost of software adoption and operation is zero.
  • It's open-source so that the code is transparent, extendable, and dependable.
  • It's trustless so that funds, exchange keys, strategies, and personal info are safe.
  • It's community-driven so that the pace of development is unparalleled.

Alignment of Interests

Technical users adopt the Superalgos Platform to improve their performance in the markets, developing trading intelligence for their consumption and benefit.

  • They help develop the software so that it meets their needs, increasing their edge.
  • Doing so earns them tokens and a reputation, making them aware of the collective.
  • They produce and share trading signals to earn more tokens and recognition.
  • They become invested in the collective while pursuing their own goals.

The Token

The Superalgos (SA) Token aligns incentives for all participants. Contributing to the project in every possible way earns you tokens!

  • The protocal distributes the token among the Community so that every user is invested.
  • Distribution is linked to the value of contributions to accelerate development.
  • Incentives go to contributing code, sharing intelligence, promoting the project, etc.
  • The token enables participation in governance and grants priority access to products and services.
  • It is in our collective interest to drive value to the token we own.
  • Phase 2: Massive Collaboration

    We are expanding the infrastructure to reduce friction in the collaboration and manage a global, massive, distributed organization.

Distributed Governance

Beta 11 — coming soon — brings a powerful governance system allowing the Community to decide how the project distributes tokens, effectively influencing the direction of development.

  • Token holders assign weights to distribution pools, deciding what to incentivize.
  • They participate in referrals, support, and mentorship programs, nurturing the community.
  • Contributors place claims for their work, and the Community vouches to pay those claims.
  • Distributed governance is a requirement for scaling the project into a massive collaboration.
  • Phase 3: The Mass Market

    The next phase of the project involves making intelligence readily available and easy to use for all crypto users.

The Superalgos Network

In the near term, the Superalgos Client will allow connecting to other Clients in a peer-to-peer fashion, enabling seamless collaboration and dissemination of trading intelligence.

  • In the beginning, users will be able to expose intelligence in the form of trading signals.
  • Later on, they may be able to share data, strategies, AI models, etc.
  • The latter will allow users to amalgamate intelligence from multiple sources and build more on top.
  • Users may then choose to work in silos, collaborate in closed groups, or openly.

Mobile Trading Bot App

The Superalgos Mobile Trading Bot app will interface with the Superalgos Network, obtain intelligence from multiple providers, and enable users to act upon trading signals.

  • The app will optimize ease of use and user experience for mass adoption.
  • Users will configure exchange keys, signal providers, and basic trading preferences.
  • The app will enable full trading automation but also function with manual confirmations.

Project Status

With early adopters trading live since mid-2020, the Superalgos Platform is reaching maturity and experiencing healthy growth of the user base.

  • The platform has ~2k downloads per month and is virtually ready to come out of beta.
  • We have ~10k monthly visitors on the website and ~20k views on the repository.
  • We have ~2.5k community members in Telegram and Discord.
  • Metrics show 20% organic growth monthly before starting Marketing & PR campaigns.

Strategic Roadmap

The next step is to launch the Superalgos Platform V1 together with the first listing of the token, backed by aggressive Public Relations & Marketing campaigns.

  • Launch of Superalgos Platform V1 + Token Listing: 2021, date contingent on listing agreement.
  • Massive Collaboration: 2021 (Q3), features to manage and decentralize the collaboration.
  • Superalgos Network: 2022 (Q1), peer-to-peer connections among Superalgos clients.
  • Superalgos App: 2022 (Q2), first version of the mobile app.
