The story behind Taylor

A conversation with Taylor’s CEO, Fabio Seixas, to shed light on this innovative project.

On November 28, 2017, Bitcoin’s price reached its all-time high of 13,000 USD, soaring over 1,200% in 2017 alone. Never in recorded history has a payment system achieved such a pace of price appreciation. Major financial institutions, such as the investment bank Goldman Sachs and the Chicago Board of Options Exchange, have definite plans to adopt Bitcoin as a commodity that could be traded conventionally like stocks, gold, and national currencies. It proves that Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are here to stay and on their way to mass adoption

Cryptocurrency trading has never been so attractive. In fact, no other investment opportunity has proven to be so profitable. However, trading crypto has many challenges, the decentralized and unregulated nature of cryptocurrencies creates an environment of incredible price volatility. There are over 1,000 cryptocurrencies and 7,000 markets (at the time of writing). Making profitable trades requires close monitoring of these cryptomarkets, significant amounts of time, extensive knowledge of technical analysis and large doses of pure luck. However, what if there was an assistant tool that performed the hard work, so you would not have to? A tool that would monitor the market looking for potentially profitable investments, and once it was found, would send a signal to the user, who could immediately take action using the built-in trading platform. What if this tool would work tirelessly delivering various signals 24 hours a day, every day. The great news is that this tool is almost here, and it is nothing but revolutionary.

Taylor is the name of the project that is about to change the way cryptocurrency trading is done today. In a candid conversation with Fabio Seixas, Taylor’s CEO, he goes into detail about the conception of this incredible tool and its functionalities. Introducing the Taylor app in Fabio’s own words.

Thiago Régis — Taylor´s CTO and founder

Thiago Régis was the app developer, and he is a firm believer in the concept of a lean startup, which entails focusing on obtaining the best results with minimum effort. The Taylor app is a perfect representation of this concept. He decided to first develop a desktop app to avoid the long and bureaucratic process of listing a mobile app on stores. He used the Electron framework, which is written in javascript — a programming language that Thiago already dominated. He was using tools that would speed up the development process since he could only work on it in the evenings after his daytime job. After 3 / 4 weeks of hard work, the proof of concept app was ready for testing.
