Greetings Mercor Family!

We just released our much-anticipated public beta platform. The beta version of the Mercor platform is now accessible to the public. This means that everyone use of the most advanced algorithmic copy trading platform in the decentralized world.

With the launch of the public beta, users can enjoy an improved platform, new algo’s, and even a fresh competition! We’ll get back to that in a bit. Furthermore, we expect a large increase in our user base, most likely bringing a scarcity to the Mercor token. Happy days.

It was satisfying to see the product, that our development team worked so hard on, is actually working and bringing tremendous value to its users.

At Mercor Finance, we find ourselves in a continuous process of improvement, in order to deliver the most user-friendly, intuitive, and easy-to-use algorithmic trading platform in the world. In order to achieve this, we will be implementing development updates throughout our journey. In the development process, we analyzed certain aspects of our platform to identify areas of improvement. We would like to take an opportunity to share these improvements with you, and some new features that will be implemented as well.

Development Update

Mercor Finance presents you the V1.1 (beta) version! We have noticed an incredibly positive response to the platform so far. Mercor aims to democratize the algorithmic trading market to connect everyday traders with some of the world’s most talented algorithm developers.

Direct Trading

One new feature we know our users will enjoy is the option to trade direct pairs. Algorithms used to trade indirectly through BNB. However, our update will allow algorithms to avert a conversion to BNB and enable them to trade specific direct pairs, saving both time and money. Each of the trading pairs available will be specified on our platform but some typical examples will include USD-BTC or USD-ETH. Dev’s will have the option to turn direct trading on and off.

Dev’s have the option to let their algo’s trade directly. Indicated by the red circle.

Trade Protection Before Investment

Algorithms can no longer execute buy and sell orders immediately after deployment. Since the cost of the orders fees would typically be divided amongst several investors, the lack of said group would result in a loss for the person placing the order. This has been improved as of today, it prevents trading of an algorithm before having any investment in it.

API & UI Improvements

Improvements to our API include faster response times and clearer formatting for certain requests. Our UI will also feature several upgrades such as improved user-friendliness and an improved sidebar. Make sure to head over to to enjoy the new UI.

User Profile & Challenges for Rewards

Our Beta update features investor profiles including challenges that users can complete. After successfully completing a challenge/achievement, users will receive rewards in the form of our native $MRCR token and award emblems.

Referral Program

Who wants some free $MRCR?

At Mercor, we are always looking for expansion and growth of our user base. This is beneficial for all, as there will be more equity invested, meaning more returns for the developers, meaning better algorithms, which leads to better days for investors. Not to mention the scarcity of the $MRCR token will increase, empowering its utility.

Our referral is fairly simple: you refer a friend (or anyone), you both get rewarded.

How you can benefit:
