Fifteen years on, and we're still innovating, growing and working on new ways to serve our customers better. For the first time, we offer short-term touch/no-touch trades and introduce a new charting application. We believe we have the most competitive and comprehensive digital options platform available to the retail public.
Our customers clearly like us. In mid-2014, Binary.com has over 100 million historical transactions and over 130,000 new daily transactions.
We rebrand BetOnMarkets.com as www.Binary.com
. The rebranding is a natural evolution for the platform as it continues to grow market share in the highly competitive field of binary trading. The new brand reflects the nature of the business, and our new tagline - Sharp Prices, Smart Trading - communicates our ethos and commitment to our clients.
BetOnMarkets.com has over 400,000 clients in its database and reach the US$ 1 billion milestone in only our 13th year, making us one of the leading fixed-odds trading providers.
Another major award. This time we're nominated by the online readers of Global Banking and Finance Review and judged by a panel of industry experts and analysts who recognise our 13 years of platform reliability, range of trades, pricing, customer service and extensive knowledge.
Times are changing. We increase payouts so our clients can make the most of their winning trades.
We're granted patents for 'Computer trading system and method for speculating on a financial market' and 'Computer trading system for offering custom financial market speculations'. The patents show our ability to innovate and stay ahead of the pack.
This is another award we really savour. Trade2win is a portal for active traders seeking to profit from stocks, futures, options and forex, and these traders award us silver (we are just pipped for gold by Betfair). It means active traders worldwide rate our trading platform extremely highly.
For the third straight year, BetOnMarkets.com is voted 'Best Fixed-Odds Financial Trading Provider' by Shares Magazine UK. It's the last time we win it because Shares Magazine stops awarding in this category.

This is big. We pick up a double award from the Financial Times and Investors Chronicle, reflecting our success in improving the quality and usability of our website and products.
The patent means Regent Markets is the recognised pioneer of binary betting. The patent helps protect our innovations.

Regent Markets files for a patent in March 2000 on the basis of our unique position as the sole serious competitor in the business of fixed-odds financial betting. In May, we register the trading name BetOnMarkets and move to Malta to receive an internet betting licence.
In October 1999, Regent Markets receives US$ 2 million investment funding from Jim Mellon through his Regent Pacific Group, a Hong Kong based fund management company.
In classic Silicon Valley style, Hong Kong based hedge fund manager and entrepreneur, Jean-Yves Sireau, starts Regent Markets in his Hong Kong bedroom. He develops the systems, methods and algorithms for implementing a fixed-odds financial betting system. Jean-Yves's vision is to create a market in the simplest of all derivatives contracts - the fixed-odds bet - and to offer ordinary investors the chance to make small bets. Until his innovation, binary options are normally only traded in large quantities.
