NAPBOTS AND ALPHIEN TEAM UP TO LAUNCH A FINANCIAL QUANT COMPETITION ON CRYPTOCURRENCIES

The competition is open to any participant with some data science expertise. The prize pool for the winners is €10,000, on top of which there are potential “licensing fees” proportional to the assets invested if a strategy is selected by NapBots.

NapBots provides the integration to numerous crypto exchanges and the ability to execute the strategy in your own account.

Napbots is a web platform offering a full range of performing and automated trading bots ready to be copied by crypto investors directly on their exchange account. Napbots is part of Napoleon Group which is an independent group specializing in crypto-asset investment solutions. It was born from a dual vision: (i) the emergence of crypto-assets as a new asset class in its own right offers unprecedented investment opportunities and (ii) the recent explosion in the performance of data algorithms opens up unparalleled possibilities for financial analysis. The group thus meets the expectations of diversified investment in crypto-assets of institutional/professional clients on the one hand via regulated or unregulated products, and via the rental of crypto trading software for individuals on the other hand.
