It seems forex signal/trade following is the biggest trend now with just about everybody offering their own version of this – Currensee, Tradency, Zulutrade, FxStat, fxjunction, Collective2 and eToro just to name a few. Each of these providers has its own platform with or without social aspects, some offer signal trading, others actual traders following. Some platforms are very simple, others are advanced are professional.
Today we see AvaFX (one of the fastest growing fx brokers) partnering with ayondo – a relatively unknown/new signal following service. ayondo seems to be based in Germany and has also partnered with UK based ActivTrades.

ayondo allows traders to follow signals from a list of over 500 available signal providers. Unlike Currensee’s Trade Leaders or FxStat’s Market Leaders who compensate signal providers/traders only from successful trades, ayondo like most other networks compensates signal providers based on volume ($3 for profitable trade and $1 for unprofitable trade). This way ayondo tries to deliver volume based compensation with profitability incentive.
Other than that it doesn’t seem to be different from any other signal/trade following platform out there.
