WHAT IS ALPHA PROTOCOL?

Quantitative researchers develop alpha strategies to generate excess return regardless of the market moves. Alpha protocol is an agreement between the alpha token holders and the quant community such that the token holders delegate the quant community to use the digital asset pool to generate excess return and then share the profit. The protocol optimize the allocation of resources and fairly distribute the profit.

An elite quant community and most efficient mechanism

The founding quant team consists of people from top hedge funds in the USA, and has years of experience in cryptocurrency trading with great track record. The design of alpha protocol ensures that the mechanism of profit sharing is fair and efficient.

Institutional Support

The support from mining pools and ICO foundations provides plenty of liquidity for the initial cryptocurrency asset pool, and helps to forge synergy between the miners and the traders.

Capability in Modeling and Technology

Blockchain experts, math PhDs and economist in our team work together to build a better economic model that stimulate everyone to communicate. We have the ability to implement all the innovative ideas in technologies, consensus mechanisms and organization structures.

Bridge of Liquidity

Aim to build the bridges between centralized exchanges and decentralized loaning token pools. Send the liquidity to wherever it is needed and make the market more efficient.
