Sharpe Capital is a blockchain startup, crowdsourcing the world’s best asset sentiment via the Ethereum blockchain. Users of the Sharpe Platform earn Ether rewards in exchange for their opinions about global equity markets. Backed by the Sharpe proprietary investment fund, rewards are paid to holders of SHP tokens on a quarterly basis. The Sharpe proprietary investment fund utilises cutting edge Machine Learning technology to deliver returns that consistently beat the stock market, with low volatility and an excellent Sharpe ratio (typically 2.5+).
Their trading ledger smart contract maintains a real-time public record of all investment activity on the blockchain, such that sentiment rewards can be paid to token holders in a decentralised and autonomous way. Subject to obtaining regulatory sign-off, they will be a blockchain start-up to issue a fully-regulated crypto-security token. They plan to issue Sharpe Crypto-Derivative (SCD) tokens to all holders of SHP, at a rate of 1-to-1. SCD will be a dividend-paying token, which tracks the performance of the Sharpe proprietary fund and pays an Ether profit-share to token holders on a biannual basis.
The investment platform is built on top of Amazon Web Services, using the best and most advanced cloud computing tools.
This makes it possible to minimize costs by using such services as self-scaling groups and a serverless architecture via AWS Lambda functions.

Payments of ETH must be submitted during our pre-sale window and SHP tokens will be issued when the crowd-sale goes live. Ether received during the pre-sale will be locked in a multi-signatory account until the token-crowdsale concludes on December 6, 2017. The pre-sale will have a hard-cap of 35,000 ETH (approximately $8m USD).
We're building a low-cost, tech-driven investment fund, specialising in global equity markets. Our strategies are backed by cutting-edge Machine Learning algorithms, and we're crowd sourcing sentiment analysis via the Ethereum blockchain.
Our decentralised platform is comprised of two key components:
Firstly, we're building a platform that allows holders of SHP tokens to earn rewards for providing asset sentiment, which provides valuable input to our investment models. By linking rewards to the quality of the sentiment provided, we're able to ensure our platform offers the highest quality of crowd-sourced sentiment analysis in the market.
Secondly, subject to regulatory approval, we will be issuing a 'cryptoderiviative' token (SCD), which will pay dividends based on the performance of our fund.
