On 23.04.2009 the moment had finally arrived: The first ever social trade was executed on the ayondo platform thereby laying the foundation stone for a modern investment product which would enable customers to take their investments into their own hands. There was a high demand: Confidence in the financial sector had suffered enormously due to the financial crisis in 2008 and transparency was therefore now of huge importance!
First let's rewind a little: In 2008, the ayondo founders came up with the brilliant idea of Social Trading, but a suitable developer was needed in order to implement the idea. That was none other than our still active and valued colleague Uli, a software developer at ayondo. Together with the founders, a first prototype was created which after numerous testing and some adjustments, the very first trade by an ayondo Top Trader was made on 23.04.2009 and with that the Social Trading idea was realised and became a finished and market-ready product.
"As a freelancer I had already been involved in great projects before of course, but the project "Social Trading Platform" was my biggest project to date. With my experience in the financial sector it was exciting and appealing" Uli, Software Developer ayondo
From the outset Uli was particularly enthusiastic about the technical development, exciting projects and the great working atmosphere at ayondo.
In 10 years of Social Trading not only has the team grown: Through continual technical development, new features and great projects such as the Social Trading Championship, we have also consistently optimised our products to make Social Trading even more intuitive and efficient for our customers.
We’d like to thank our customers for their trust in Social Trading and our products over the past 10 years and look forward to the coming decade with great new developments and successful trading!
