Background of 3Commas
3Commas was launched back in 2017. And today, it already enjoys 100k active traders on the platform with more than $12 billion recorded annual trading volume. One of the distinct features users can see on the platform is the “smart trade” option that allows users to customize and set their own parameters in entering and exiting trade positions.
Such a feature is enabled by derivatives-specific bots, freeing traders from the need to constantly watch over their positions and execute trades manually every time. For those who do not know much about technical analysis, 3Commas has a marketplace integrated with TradingView’s technical indicators. This option is to let users easily find trading signals that fit their risk appetite, which they can put to use whenever setting their own triggers and conditions for automated trading functions.
According to 3Commas, the funding that they received from investors will be used to improve their digital asset trade automation and portfolio management technology. It will also help them in their plan to introduce new financial products, integrate with decentralized finance (DeFi), and open the platform to more asset classes.
The team is hopeful that these new series of investments will help them in their goal to expand further internationally. As of the latest, the focus of the team is to strengthen localized services in Asia and South America. According to them, they have begun testing FX and Equity markets as well.
