In one decade, digital currency has gone from an academic concept to a fully-realized multi-billion dollar industry.
The oft-repeated sentiments of techies during the 2017 Bitcoin craze appear to have stood the test of time: Cryptocurrency is the future.
The question is, are we prepared for this future?
That’s where Roostoo comes in. Roostoo is a new, free, and easy-to-use app catered to the younger generation. Its purpose is to teach anyone, anywhere, how to invest in cryptocurrencies by offering a virtual portfolio and a real-time mock trading environment. Our app, which is already available on Android and is coming soon to iOS, is already in use by several university clubs as an educational tool.
Its strength lies in its simplicity. There is no paywall, no obligation to sign up, no barrier for use. The design of the app is very beautiful and minimalistic, intended to guide the user as they navigate the crypto-world and implement trading strategies. It is elegant and modern and accessible, unlike many mock trading guides nowadays.
At Roostoo, our mission is to provide an effortless learning environment that eliminates the barrier to access that exists in the crypto-space today. A lack of knowledge and money should not be able stop the younger generations from getting involved in a new and promising industry. This form of financial accessibility has been positively received worldwide, particularly in emerging economies in Asia and Africa, where the use of cryptocurrencies can have an immense impact. Most of Roostoo’s users are college-aged, and hail from all over the world, from America to Malaysia to Zimbabwe to India.
We are excited to announce that, come 2020, we will be releasing two brand new features to Roostoo: referral codes and mock-trading competitions. We will also be moving in the direction of gamifying our app in order to maximize the user experience. Our hope is to be able to foster and engage with our growing community and offer an opportunity to have fun with peers.
Referrals will be rewarded with in-game mock cash. Competitions, which can be created by anyone, come with the option of being “public” [anyone can join] or “private” in order to suit the needs of any individual and organization. There may be official competitions between universities or hosted by existing companies with actual prizes, or there may be unofficial contests just to hone your investing skills and have fun. Either way, it is sure to offer much enjoyment and is certainly something to keep an eye out for in the coming months.
