Avi and Solly discuss how Machine Learning can be applied to stock market trading
While exploring the idea of creating complex ML trading bots, cofounders invert the idea and focus on building an open platform for all traders vs a secretive hedge fund.
Built nvest.io site and tools in order to show users & investors what is possible with Machine Learning. Pattern Finder and sample NLP products highlighted. Focus on traditional financial market applications.
Met with local VC's and spoke to many others. None shared our vision of building an expert team from Day 1 and we weren't interested in raising money every 3 months.
Put fundraising on hold and decided to build out technology services locally. Pattern Finder updated to deal with multidimensional data inputs. Bot Builder launched.
As crypto ecosystem began to grow (more tokens to analyze) and with help of our Advisor Mickael, nvest pivoted from focusing on traditional financial market analytics to crypto.
Reached out to few crypto investors and distributed draft of white paper
Watching the rise of crypto focused developer communities made us realize that building and embracing 'creators' is huge advantage crypto offers vs traditional open source.
