How does it work?
Things to keep in Mind
We’re sure you have questions. Here are some answers to the most commonly asked ones.
How much can I earn?
The principle behind AlphaSwap is that successful users get paid in cash based on their performance. At present, the total amount payable to successful users will vary between $1,000 and $10,000 per month. The total amount and how it is allocated depends on the number of performing ideas, their performance and also on how a user’s other ideas are performing.
Do I need to invest anything?
You do not need to invest capital. Users do need to commit Credits to submit or vote for an Idea, and at the moment Credits are awarded to users for free. We are applying this principle because we value high quality, high conviction ideas on the platform in order to generate attractive performance.
Would there be conflict of interest with my current role?
Users who are in an investing or markets role will have compliance manuals with varying degrees of depth, but one important point is that users do not invest in securities on the AlphaSwap platform. Notwithstanding, we recommend that users focus on submitting investment ideas which are outside of their direct professional remits.
How can this help my career?
Whether you are on the Buyside, Sellside, or a Private Investor, AlphaSwap is unrivalled in its ability (and focus) to help your career. You will get validation and traction of your ideas, while sourcing new ideas. Most importantly, you will create a track record of ideas and performance you can point to.
Can I be anonymous on the platform?
Yes, you have the option to stay anonymous. You can at any point in time choose to convert your profile to a named profile should you wish to.
