New York City, NY – Innovative mobile trading application MobyTrader™, developed by Mobytron, has won the annual Benzinga Global Fintech Award for Best Forex Platform. The Benzinga Global Fintech Awards is the largest fintech event focusing on the capital markets, bringing over 200 companies to New York City from countries including India, Israel, Poland, and Singapore.

With 225 finalists receiving over 100.000 votes to advance to the judging round, Benzinga had earlier announced MobyTrader™ to be amongst 10 other category finalists. A judging board of more than 30 leaders in every fintech vertical then selected MobyTrader™ as the winner of Best Forex Platform, key motivation being the application’s innovative characteristics and its great potential to reshape the finance industry.

The MobyTrader™ application offers a pioneering combination of easy access to financial markets and ultra-fast crypto penny-order-trading. Newly developed ‘Ranger Options’ allow any user to establish a personalized style of trading. Stock market fluctuations can be predicted with a simple tap, as users play around with trading intervals and compete with each other. Profits and trading skills are measured through in-app social connections and leaderboards.

Paul de Groot, founder and CEO of Mobytron, has further announced real crypto currency trading to be coming to the platform shortly: “The whole team is working like crazy to get the platform ready, enabling Bitcoin and other crypto trades and transactions for MobyTrader™. A huge milestone for The Next Generation of Trading.” Winner of Best Forex Platform MobyTrader™ is available through Google Play for Android and the Apple App Store.
