Janus – about Trademimic.com

ascendus [1:48 AM]

About *Social Fintech/Trading* ( trademimic.com ) :

We plan to build a site and platform that allows experienced forex traders to set up account profiles. These traders will have their own private ‘rooms’ that will allow them to connect people to their trades, charts, and calls all in one place.

Private chat will be enabled, and each follower who signs up to them will gain access only by paying a monthly subscription fee. The day traders will no longer need to worry about collecting payments from each member as our site will handle this and take a small percentage fee.

We will offer people numerous methods to expand their following, full social media integration and privacy that can only be unlocked through subscription.

Advanced traders will have a link that directs their social media followers to our site and their private rooms. This will enable our team and users to promote user acquisition on a very large scale.

Traders will be inputting their TA/charts and market indicators to predict where they think the markets are moving, paid subscribers will have access. Traders will be scored using an automated process based on the success of their calls, and potential followers will be able to see these scores and current followers recommendations prior to signing up for each signal caller’s private rooms.

Our team has some experience in the development of forex trading bots. We plan to create an in browser gui to configure various trading strategies and put traders in the position to backtest these using a multi threaded approach which will dramatically shorten the time required to backtest trading strategies when compared to packages such as MT4, etc. This will be marked as part of a professional package within the social fintech site and carry a higher price but should prove extremely valuable for end users.

There are more options that will be added over time until our business becomes the primary source for all interested parties to convene. We will, of course, run heavy marketing and gain user feedback, then apply suggestions when appropriate to further make the entire user experience amazing for all our users.

Janus Status Update

bjorn on July 19, 2017, 10:46:00 pm:

As you may have noticed, things have been a bit quiet lately. This post is an attempt to explain what has happened over the past few weeks and to clarify our outlook for the future.

Active Sites and Dividends

a) As you probably know, we got involved with the ETC (Ethereum Classic) community. As an icebreaker and to prove that we’re men of our word and know what we’re doing (more on this later), we launched ETCBets.com , an upgrade of our existing codebase to use websockets as a transport layer which gives our site awesome betting speed and massively reduced server load. The site was well received and some of the site profits were distributed to both the ETC dev team(s) and Janus holders.

b) Parallel to this, BetterBets.io is still running and processing bets using both BTC and NXT. While it’s initial reception from the NXT community was quite positive, traffic has dropped quite a bit over the past 2 months. Part of this may be our fault because we’ve been focused on our future businesses and have not done a lot of promotions and marketing; another factor contributing to the drop in traffic may be that the NXT community is simply too small to sustain large betting volumes now that the initial site ‘newness’ has worn off.

c) Since betting is an unpredictable business and lady luck can’t be relied upon to always smile our way, ETCBets.com profits in May were basically wiped out by a lucky (and/or skillful) player who managed to win a large pot. The same player came back in June and repeated his performance, leading to another low dividend month for Janus holders. Our feeling on this are (of course) mixed. On the one hand, we don’t mind players winning and our investigation showed that this player’s winning were legitimate; as such we can only congratulate him on his success (on a sidepoint, the fact that this player was able to win a significant amount of ETC should serve as proof that we run an honest and fair casino). On the other hand, since we own the bankroll and could not distribute any significant dividends to Janus holders we’re a bit saddened by our loss. But such is the gambling business, you win some and you loose some.

d) Adding insult to injury, in early July a flaw in our site was discovered and an attacker managed to make off with about 490 ETC. Due to the fact that we have certain safeguards in place the attacker could not extract more than his amount from our site, but the loss, while not crippling still hurts. We put the site into maintenance and have since re-engineered the code which was responsible for the exploit. As of 2 days ago the site is live again with dice bets; Parabolic will be put live during the course of this week. To be clear: our server was not compromised and the majority of our bankroll remains unharmed and in our possession.

Future Plans

a) We have reached an agreement with a new developer who will join our team before the end of July. We hope that the addition of this developer will lighten the workload of our main dev (Lobos) and allow us to speed up development of our new sites.

b) We have always said that we will not put all our eggs in one basket. As such, we have for some time had plans for some side initiatives which at least deserve a shot to see if they can grow into viable businesses. One of these initiatives is about 50% complete and it will be the task of our new dev to take the code we have so far and bring it to completion.

c) In addition to everything else which has been going on, work on our first mainstream site – TradeMimic.com – has begun and some basic pieces of functionality are starting to come together. There is still lots of work to be done for this site and completing it will be our devs primary focus for the remainder of Q3. We will keep everybody posted on progress and hope to invite some of our Janus investors to be beta testers when the site/code is ready for that.

Yours in business,

– The Janusproject Team
