BitcoinChaser: What kind of problem, market deficiency or opportunity inspired you to launch your project?
WatermelonBlock (WMB): Finding and comparing unbiased, easy to understand and actionable updated information on market sentiments and insights on cryptocurrencies and ICOs is time consuming.
Whilst cryptomarket information is plentiful, finding unbiased, reliable and thorough market insights, in layperson terms, is challenging. Comparing these resources is also extremely time consuming. Many investors miss valuable opportunities due to this problem.
Markets are highly influenced by sentiment, but investors cannot reliably measure the credibility and influence of opinions. Theories of behavioral economics reiterate that investment decisions are influenced by psychological and speculative factors in the same way they are influenced by rational factors like intrinsic value and historical trends. Cryptocurrency and blockchain markets are highly influenced by online opinions in the forms of news, social media, blogs and micro sites.
More and more, investors are acting on the feedback and insights provided through new media channels, meaning that the sentiment of the market has a much stronger influence on blockchain assets compared to fiat currency assets.
