In this article, you will learn how to create your own White Label solution for launching trading platforms, what is needed for this, and how much it costs to develop such software. We will also tell you how to monetize such projects.

Decide on the type of platform


A trading platform is software that allows you to buy and sell various assets in the financial markets. Such assets can be fiat currencies, cryptocurrencies, securities, precious stones and metals, commodities, insurance policies, NFTs, access to something, etc.

When creating a white label to launch a trading platform, you need to decide:

Next, you will need to do some market research to understand what your potential customers and their target audience need. If you have the appropriate knowledge and skills, then such an analysis can be carried out independently. If there aren’t any, this task can be outsourced to a marketing agency or a full-cycle development company such as Merehead.

Here's how to find out what your customers and their target audience need:

Decide on the functionality of the trading platform


White label functionality can be divided into two separate groups. The first is the capabilities that will enable your clients to launch and manage a trading platform. The second is the functions through which end users will buy and sell financial assets using your software.

Decide how to keep your platform secure


One of the main problems of trading is security. And this problem is especially acute in the field of cryptocurrencies, where every year there are large thefts of traders' money from deposits on the exchange. So, the Mt. Gox exchange was hacked in 2014, which allowed hackers to steal $ 450 million, Bitfinex in 2016 — $ 65 million, Binance in 2019 — $ 40.5 million. The Bithumb exchange was hacked three times: in 2017, 2018 and 2019, due to which the trading platform lost $ 58 million.

Here's what you can do to secure your white label:

Start developing a White Label solution


After you have decided what exactly your solution should be for launching trading platforms, what functions it should have and how to ensure its comprehensive protection, you can proceed directly to the development of the white label. This process usually consists of the following steps:

UX design of the platform

UX is the design of how your product interacts with users. When designing its structure and user paths, you should do everything in such a way that users achieve their goals with a minimum of interaction with the platform and have no difficulty in understanding what and how they should do. To avoid mistakes, pay great attention to user research, getting feedback and testing the UX of your white label.

UI design of the platform

UI is how your white label solution will be seen by its users. In our case, this means creating user interfaces for licensees and traders. All elements of these interfaces, such as colors, typography, graphics, images, videos and icons, should have a pleasing appearance and be styled within a single visual concept. At the same time, all design elements must have functional usefulness and be intuitive for users.
