Currensee Promotes Social Sharing Through Launch of Public Profiles

Enables Members to Share Profiles on Facebook, Twitter and Other Social Networks for Full Transparency

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - September 16, 2010) -  Currensee, Inc. (www.currensee.com), the first Forex trading social network connecting traders from around the world based on real-time trades, has debuted a new feature that allows members to make their profiles publicly available. The enhancement gives members the ability to share their profiles with traders outside of the Currensee social network and provides another layer of transparency and collaboration by exposing traders' real performance, trading styles and biographies to connect with other Forex traders around the world.

Until now, members of the Currensee social network could only find each other and share information within the Currensee platform. The new public profiles give Forex traders outside the Currensee network the ability to find and connect with members and an increased level of information sharing. Each member's public profile is an individual URL that they can share with their trading friends or anyone else online. Users can friend each other directly from external profiles and non-members can join right from the trader's profile page.

"The public profiles feature is another example of the power of sharing real-time data with real Forex traders," Currensee CEO Dave Lemont said. "Recently, we debuted the Forex industry's first Trade Leaderboard that ranks top Forex traders based on both historical and real-time performance along with a proprietary performance authority and risk index. We've always been about trust and transparency and now the public profiles give members one more way to control and share their trade information to connect with other Forex traders."

To give members full control over their privacy settings, Currensee is releasing this new feature as an opt-in feature for current members. Members can choose to make their profiles public and can change their privacy settings at any time. Public profiles enable non-members and members alike to preview trader profiles and trading styles. Now, a member can simply email or add a link to their profile from their Facebook wall, LinkedIn profile, Twitter page, blog or any other website. Previously, linking to someone's profile was only available to trading friends within the Currensee social network.

The Currensee public profiles are another important step toward the Currensee Trade Leaders™ Investment Program, which will be launching in the coming months. In the meantime, the company is recruiting successful traders to be Trade Leaders. As Currensee Trade Leaders, experienced Forex traders can be compensated for successful trading without the tedious effort of recruiting customers, managing money and reporting results. The call for Trade Leaders was announced in January of this year and successful Forex traders are encouraged to apply at www.currensee.com/tradeleaders.
