Sharpe Capital, a company using neural networks and machine learning modelling algorithms to look for predictive patterns in financial data, has developed a ‘Global Sentiment Index’. By crowdsourcing market sentiment from users with proven a reputation and stake, Sharpe Capital will link automated mathematical analysis and human perceptions of the market to disrupt the capital markets sector, and will be paying certified contributors to its platform for their opinion in Ether.
Following a successful preliminary period with a $8 million whitelist, Sharpe Capital has launched its SHP token sale until the 15th of February 2018, with a hard cap of $20MM USD. Token buyers will get to vote on blockchain assets and fiat stocks and bonds when the crowd sale ends. Depending upon how often they vote, how accurate their predictions are, and what proof-of-stake they demonstrate, SHP token holders get paid monthly for their effort.
