Aluna: Origin Story

How it Started

Alvin started trading cryptocurrencies in 2013, and visited Twitter frequently to follow what other traders were saying about the market. However, he soon realised it was impossible to know if a crypto trader on social media was putting his money where his mouth is.

MVP Release

Alvin and Henrique quickly got started on the MVP, and on-boarded Filipe to help with the frontend. In December 2017, we released an MVP of the platform to 300 early adopters.

Alpha Release

After reflecting on the feedback from our early adopters, we went back to the drawing board to design a new version of the Aluna.Social platform.

Beta Release

Working on feedback from the Alpha, we refactored a significant portion of the code, went through a major server migration to improve the architecture, and completed penetration testing before releasing a public beta in October 2019 that also included Binance integration.

How it’s Going

“I Prod In Test”

There’s a lot on the line when it comes to security at Aluna.Social and handling our users’ exchange API keys is a huge responsibility. As a result, we take a rigorous approach towards our testing process and security standards.

What’s Next?

We plan to start our ALN Public Sale in March 2021, and list ALN on several centralised and decentralised exchanges after the end of the sale.
