Meet SwissBorg, A ScalaCon Silver Sponsor

ScalaCon is a series of virtual conferences designed to bring the Scala community closer together. This type of conference isn't possible without the support of our sponsors. We're pleased to have SwissBorg as a Silver sponsor this year!

SwissBorg is on a mission to democratise wealth management with the SwissBorg app, and Scala has always been the lingua franca at SwissBorg.

Our showcase product, the SwissBorg app, is empowering over 350,000 users to buy, sell and exchange digital assets, with features like AI-powered asset analysis and Portfolio Analytics to help them make smart investment decisions. Our best-in-class Smart Yield wallet gives users the opportunity to earn yields of up to 30% of USDC, along with increasing the benefits of our own token’s staking utility by offering Premium account holders 2X yield.

The SwissBorg token is the heart of the SwissBorg ecosystem, and was one of 2020’s top-performing tokens, skyrocketing by 2,700% and reaching the top 70 tokens on CoinMarketCap. And our gamified Bitcoin prediction app, the Community App, now has over 270,000 players, helping the cryptosphere reach its goal of mass adoption by providing our players with a free and zero-risk way to learn about the crypto market.

At SwissBorg, our entire backend uses micro-services architecture and all services are written in Scala. As a consumer app, we’ve experienced phases of exponential growth where the capacity to scale is a must. In this journey, leveraging the Akka & Typelevel ecosystems have been key in our success. Additionally, in the financial industry, the cost of bugs is substantial and can be life threatening for a company. Leveraging a strongly typed and Functional-Programming (FP) approach have both been key elements for addressing the low level of production bugs we’ve met.

Finally, the Event-Sourcing model is very well suited for an Order Management System (OMS) and the Scala eco-system plays very nicely here.
