Some of our major milestones following the Aluna.Social Token Sale in March 2021, was to launch BitMEX copy-trading, integrate the Aluna platform with more exchanges, and list $ALN token on additional DEXs. We have accomplished that mission and continue full force ahead with our Roadmap pivots.
Here’s a summary of what we achieved in Q3 2021.
🤝 Partnership with BitMEX
To accelerate the growth and usage of Aluna.Social platform by traders globally, Aluna officially partnered with BitMEX. The partnership has allowed us to bring a transparent and gamified social trading experience to all BitMEX traders connected to Aluna.Social, and collaborate on various campaigns including Copy-trading and a Trading Competition.

💵 100x Ventures Invests in Aluna
Following the initial Seed Equity Investment by 100x Ventures earlier this year, a significant second tranche investment was completed in August, demonstrating their commitment to Aluna’s long term growth.
CEO of BitMEX, Alex Hoptner said “We’re proud to add to our initial investment in Aluna.Social, which is quickly showing that it has what it takes — and more — to shake up the automated trading space.”

🔥 BitMEX Copy-trading
We’re excited to launch the long awaited copy-trading for BitMEX. Traders are now able to view the real-time trades of BitMEX traders connected to Aluna.Social, and automatically copy top performers. Experienced traders also get to benefit by earning ALN rewards for sharing their trades on Aluna Leaderboard (coming soon).

⚙️ Integration with Exchanges
In addition to existing integrations with BitMEX, Binance, Poloniex, Bittrex and Bitfinex, Aluna.Social platform has also integrated read-only spot markets for Gate.io and Valr exchanges. This means that traders on Gate.io and Valr can now monitor and manage multiple exchange accounts from a single interface on Aluna.Social. Stay tuned as we add additional exchanges in Q4!

👶 The Birth of AlunaDAO
Another key milestone for Aluna this year was the birth of AlunaDAO, a community of ALN token holders who collectively own and manage the DAO. This milestone marks a move towards a 100% community owned and self-governed project where AlunaDAO members get to make protocol and ecosystem governance decisions, ultimately creating long-term value for the benefit of the Auna ecosystem and its participants.
