3 Ways Darwinex Armours Your Most Valuable Asset: Your Intellectual Property

In this blog post, we are going to explain the 3 current privacy levels offered by Darwinex to traders like you with the aim of protecting your intellectual property.

If you have been a member of our growing family for a while, I’m sure that you know this by heart, but for those of you who are newcomers -big welcome by the way!-, it is very important to know that Darwinex has always followed a “Trader First” ethos.

The clearest example of this has been an ironclad protection of our Trader’s IP in order to dissuade copycats from lurking around in search of a “free lunch”.

Besides never publishing your last 3 positions, so no one will ever be able to scan your live strategy, we have offered, up to now, two levels of control over what Investors can see:

  • HIDE STRATEGY => For Traders who don’t have a DARWIN yet -BTW, we think you’re missing out on a lifetime opportunity -, Darwinex offers you the option to hide all the details of your trading strategy. Upon activating this feature, other users will not be able to find your strategy in the Darwinex search engine.
  • HIDE TRADES IN THE TRADING JOURNAL => For our DARWIN providers, we grant you the chance to hide your Trading Journal details so your data is not visible to Investors. Do not worry for your IP if you don’t activate this option though since, as explained above, your last 3 positions will always remain hidden.

However, and following recent feedback from some of our most “IP-concerned” traders –yes, we hear you out!-, an extra layer of IP protection has been implemented:

  • HIDE ASSETS TRADED IN THE STATISTICS AND GRAPHS => As of today, if you activate this option, other users will not be able to see the assets in which you have traded in any of the graphs/statistics in both your strategy and your DARWIN. Furthermore, all the trades in your trading journal will be automatically hidden.

Please bear in mind that some investors could choose not to invest in your DARWIN if they consider that you are hiding too much trading info.

Darwinex strongly believes that more transparent DARWINs/strategies are more attractive to Investors, but we also think that Trader’s should have full control over how much data they want to display.

In order to set the privacy level for your trading strategy, please click on the settings wheel/privacy settings and a pop-up window will appear showing you the 3 options previously described -see pics below-.

P.S: If you are not a DARWIN provider yet – there are over 1500 DARWINs listed on our exchange- we encourage you to sign up, open an MT4 real account or link an existing one, and list your first DARWIN. Almost $50.000.000 of AuM are waiting for you!

    Any particular reason why you hard coded 3 trades? I would think you would make this an input where people can hide the last 10 or 20 trades. A higher frequency day trading may re

    Or hide based on age. Like show trades that are xxx minutes/hours old. Rather than the number of trades, have a blanket blackout based on time. I might want to block trades that are less than 2 hours old.

    This is more rational in that it also takes into account that some day traders trade more frequently. I think myfxbook solves this problem by allowing users to customized the frequency of the updates. (1, 5, 10, 15, 30, 60 min, 3 hrs, 6 hrs 12 hrs, 24 hrs.

    ForexPeaceArmy allows option for once a day updates.

    Can darwinex traders hide things like position size (lot size)?

      Hi Jon Grah! We did various experiments with different inputs and came to the conclusion that the balance between balance and data protection was 3 hidden positions. However, any trader can hide his/her trading journal as explain in the article. Regards
