Think you are a good trader?
Prove it on our trading simulator and we will give you risk-free money to trade with.
Passing our demo-trading trial period is no easy feat. We like to call it “Proof-of-Work”:
The trader has to exhibit discipline, low time preference, will-power and most importantly talent, in order to proceed.
Even though our traders come from all over the world with different experiences and backgrounds, we can honestly say that all of them have that star quality, or talent, to become exceptional traders. It is our role to help them fulfill that potential.

Seed investment by Hexa Group, the largest crypto company in Israel.
The Group led the seed investment, recognizing the huge potential Alef Bit presents:
Alef Bit is the first company to apply the proven model of strategy diversification in the growing crypto market and as such, holds a first-mover advantage.
Secondly, with crypto still in its early stage, fundamentals are still unclear. Therefore, Alef Bit, with its ever-growing traders’ community could emerge as a priceless indicator of market sentiment.
The crypto space is a blue ocean in terms of its technology and as a new asset class. As such, regulation is still unclear: The first step in setting up Alef Bit’s operation was to enlist the top legal and accounting offices in order to establish the optimal legal framework for the company
As the first step in the funnel process, we built a state-of-the-art demo trading platform for evaluating traders’ performance. The platform offers real-time quotes while taking commission and slippage into consideration.
The platform can support thousands of traders at any given time, and is the key stage where we filter which traders proceed to live-trading and are given real funds to manage.
Over time, the platform is continuously improved: New features are added and our analyzing tools get better and better, making the filtering process more efficient.
Since Q4 2018, hundreds of traders from all over the world on-boarded the trial period to demonstrate their trading abilities.
Our traders have shown great enthusiasm and motivation in joining the platform.
Here are just a few examples of what these traders have to say:
“I have seen this program and it is a great opportunity for me to demonstrate what I have learned over the last two years and for my career as a trader. Thanks”
“As you know, you need money to make money! I'm very competitive & a fast learner I thrive when given the opportunity to prove myself, especially when it's doing something I love to do”
After advancing our best traders to the live-trading stage and allocating them real funds to manage, we have seen a substantial increase in our credibility and the willingness of new traders to join. This strengthened even more after our first performance fee payout.
All in all, we are seeing the consistent expansion of our network effect with the ever-growing number of new traders joining our program.
Traders who have successfully completed the demo-trading trial period proceeded to live-trading and real funds allocation, on a performance-based revenue-share model.
These traders received a sub-account on one of the tier 1 crypto exchanges with permissions to trade only (they cannot deposit or withdraw funds from the account)
Due to the big difference between demo and live trading, live traders start with a relatively small initial allocation in order to verify consistency with their paper trading performance. From then on, funds are allocated based on performance.
We dedicated this 1 year period to test-drive our model and acquire sufficient funds to constantly onboard new portfolio managers. During this time, we expect our aggregated portfolio to slowly stabilize as more traders join our program.
This time was also used to QA and optimize our risk management model and our performance-based funds allocation system. As a result, we should see constant improvement as our optimization tools begin to take effect.
The crypto market’s high volatility can be a double-edged sword: On the one hand, large price swings offer enormous potential gains for talented traders. On the other hand, investors may be deterred to allocate funds due to the high risk.
At Alef Bit, we believe we’ve created the perfect engine to match between traders with limited access to funds and investors who can provide those same funds.
We offer a unique value proposition: Talented traders filtering mechanism; performance-based funds allocation; and money management & optimization, all combined together to out-perform a high-gains but high-risk market.
We launched our demo trading-simulator in November 2018, and initiated our live-trading in February 2019. So far, the results have exceeded all expectations.
Now is the time to scale our company and take it to the next level!
Whether you are a talented trader eager to prove your skill, or an investor looking to get exposure to crypto but have not found the right vehicle to do so, Alef Bit may be the answer for you!
