HedgeTrade, built by Rublix, is a predictions marketplace that has elements of social trading, social media and betting — the platform is starting with trading predictions, and will be expanding into eSports and sports betting.
The staking and payout model is completely novel and has never been done before on any other competitive platform (patent pending).
Initial adoption has exceeded expectations and user feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.
Above all, HedgeTrade is built, the Beta is live, and hundreds of users have signed up and are using it within the first few weeks of launch — without any marketing or promotion.
In Q2 2020, the company will do the main launch once a few more additional features are implemented and exponentially scale the user base.
HedgeTrade Investment Highlights
Institutional traders and expert influencers have a well-established infrastructure for promoting their ideas and analysis. Millions of retail traders and everyday enthusiasts are already posting their ideas online but don’t have a platform to monetize their followers or achieve a validated reputation.
Online Marketplaces are multi-billion dollar industries and the hottest growth industry in tech. HedgeTrade is on track at becoming the leading predictions marketplace worldwide.
Initial user adoption has exceeded our financial model assumptions and direct user feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Expecting to be cashflow positive in Year 1. Estimates for Year 2 indicate a 9-figure valuation.
