Users are able to manage their accounts opened with different exchanges, from a single unified interface.

Tab Trader connects to wallets via API keys which are either kept by users themselves or stay on the different exchanges which they have connected to the platform.
In addition to trading, users also gain access into technical analysis, can make chats, add trend, horizontal lines and take advantage of technical indicators to make their trading better.
