Hello! Sharpe Capital is partnering with Bancor and will put whatever is raised above $45M into BNT for liquidity purposes.

https://medium.com/@sharpecapital/sharpe-capital-and-the-bancor-protocol-6691c4be4cdd

Apart from this, Codecontext will audit the TLS Smart Contracts and Open Zeppelin will handle the escrow for the token sale.

This is a good short description than the 60 pages wp, qould be better to have a simple viral video also



Sharpe Capital is a multifaceted investment company that integrates several proprietary strategies to trade on government regulated stock exchanges. Its initial index fund will be using a long/short strategy by buying long assets while simultaneously short selling those that are expected decrease in value. It will do this through their Quantitative Trading Model which utilizes several proprietary market assessment strategies.

The ground-breaking protocol for providing liquidity to tokens on the Ethereum blockchain provided by Bancor is shaping the future of new altcoins.

Sharpe Capital is one of the first who will embrace the Bancor protocol, which means that the market participants will always be able to liquidate or purchase Sharpe’s SHP tokens without having to find a counterparty to buy or sell the tokens.
 
Sharpe Capital is an innovative 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.
 
With its upcoming token sale, Sharpe Capital will expand operations and allow consumer investors, hedge funds and institutional investors to profit from a best in class investment fund, while maintaining high levels of trust via a decentralised ‘trustless’ immutable trade ledger.

To learn more about the project and meet the team, visit the Sharpe Capital Telegram Channel: https://t.me/sharpecapital

Can you break contextual frame analysis down into laymen's terms please? How is your PoC coming along for this? How is contextual frame analysis important to the long term sustained success of the investment platform?

Thanks, this makes things, well somewhat clearer. I'll get back to you with questions once i process this

Can you break contextual frame analysis down into laymen's terms please? How is your PoC coming along for this? How is contextual frame analysis important to the long term sustained success of the investment platform?

Hey, thanks for your question. So, contextual frame analysis (CFA), is one of the more hypothetical elements of the platform. It is not necessary for its operation, but we believe it would serve to further reduce risk and increase returns by improving accuracy as compared to the more standard sentiment analysis approaches - of which there are many.

In the simplest terms, CFA is an attempt to capture how language use (contextual frames) drives decision making. The seminal example given is the 'Virus vs Beast' study by Thibodeau and Boroditsky (2011), in which an identical article about a crime wave - except a one word difference - is shown to two groups of people. One article used the word 'beast' and the other used 'virus'. The consensus of the group that saw 'beast' was that punitive action should be taken against the criminals, however, the group that saw 'virus' leaned strongly toward rehabilitation. When the people in these groups were asked to justify their decision, nobody mentioned the virus/beast word usage, and quoted data/statistics from the article.  (See pp. 28-29 in our white paper)

That is, people came to opposing decisions while justifying them with the same data, driven by the contextual frame in which they saw the data. We are working with Mieke, a linguistic & expert in frame analysis, to develop a strategy that enables us to determine whether these 'contextual frames' are more likely to drive an investor toward 'bullish' or 'long' vs 'bearish' or 'short' when consuming news media and other data sources from which they make their investment decision. Underpinning this theory is the concept that decision making is, to a significant extent, emotional - even when investors insist their actions are data driven, they are ultimately slaves to the cognitive decision making processes we all evolved with.

At the moment we are developing a manual CFA process based on 'traditional' linguistic frame analysis as a proof-of-concept on a relatively small number of news articles, as this is a novel idea in both investment and linguistics. Once the relationship between frames and responses is established in a few key examples, we will quickly scale it to operate on a large scale using natural language processing techniques within artificial intelligence and machine learning, such that our algorithms can learn to optimally identify contextual frames based on historical data. We aim to have this operational along with the rest of the platform - however, this is a scientific endeavour, and as such may be subject to further development before we release it in the wild.

It is probably the most exciting of the linguistic analysis approaches we're taking, but it is not mission critical to operation of the fund - it will simply serve to enhance it.

Let me know if you have any more questions. If you're interested in the linguistics side of things, Mieke hangs out in the Telegram group.
