"Choosing Lightstreamer was a no-brainer" - a short interview with Israel Kalush, VP Engineering at eToro, a pioneer and world leader in Social Trading. eToro opted for Lightstreamer to deliver server-to-client high-frequency messages, including price ticks.
Let’s talk about your organization. What is your core business?
"eToro is the world's largest social investment network. eToro allows traders to invest in the global markets, follow the financial trading activities of other users as well as CopyTrade them. Clients allow their trading activity to be published on eToro's network along with their trading history and performance metrics. Users leverage this wealth of financial information and choose to copy other traders. In such case, the eToro platform will automatically duplicate each trade made in the copier's account using the same execution rates."
Could you let us know any further information?
" Through eToro's award winning platform, over 5 million traders are empowered to learn from each other, share live trading information and even capitalize on their collective trading power, thanks to the CopyTrader feature. Traders can also use eToro’s social trading services on the go, with eToro’s Mobile Trader for Android and iPhone.
eToro has local offices in London, Cyprus, Moscow, Shanghai, Israel and Sydney."
