@admin.hackathon
Project Name: Arcus
Project Track: Academy
Team Name: Dartmouth Blockchain
Team Member(s): 2 - @amayrbabar & @tndzues
Project Goal: Arcus is a web dynamic social trading platform incentivizing cryptocurrency trading indicators through building a community of like-minded analysts and traders while providing cutting-edge cryptocurrency trading tools.
Project Info: Arcus is a social trading platform that connects retail traders with analysts who provide cryptocurrency real-time trading signals, and analysis education to their communities. Integration with the EtherScan API and offers functionality such as one-click trading of the product aims to remove the barrier to entry in trading cryptocurrencies. Second, our “gamified crypto model” aims to drive value by pitting analysts against each other in a competition to incentivize and gamify the performance of trade profit ROI for their respective communities.

Project Test Instructions: N/A
Project Details: In the current era of ever-busy schedules, and a social drive to connect, there exists a large group of working retail cryptocurrency investors who want to learn about well-researched signals and interact with others, but a centralized platform is needed. That is where Arcus comes in. We aim to be a space where traders can freely collaborate with others, while many quality-of-life tools are integrated to make the trading experience as smooth as possible.
Introducing Arcus, a webapp social trading platform that can connect analysts and retail traders, while connecting the Tron Scan API and offering functionality such as one-click trading and trading buy-sell indicators.
The first value add is that the platform connects analysts with retail traders to provide education on real time trade signals. Second, our “gamified crypto model” aims to pit analysts against each other in competition to incentivize and gameify performance of trade profits for the community. Through a freemium business model, we aim to offer premium subscriptions for users if they want access beyond the basic social aspects. This means receiving access to follow curated analysts’ trade ideas, one-click trade copy functionality, and beyond. By freemium, we are able to stay client-focused, as the app being free-to-download reduces clients’ barriers to entry. At the same time, a value-generating premium subscription encourages users to subscribe (the target price right now is ~$20/month, with additional add-ons).
Tron’s technology would specifically be used through the Tron Scan Api to track the wallet addresses of analysts to determine the ROI on the the trades that they make. Additionally, the Tron Crypto ETFs ​will be able to facilitate on and off-ramp payments to incentivize analysts

Nice idea, not bad at all. It will be great for traders in this bear season.

If i read right, there will be subscription fee for premium access. That is great, but this is crypto things can turn sour in seconds, my little suggestion is, why not design the contract in a way, people will pay a commission of a certain percentage after making profit from a trading signal.

People want a good deal, and that will be a good deal for them. If u think otherwise too you can let me know your point. Thank you and wishing you the best.

That’s right, there should be a commission fee at least for a profit from a trading Signal.
