Tell us about your team?

We took interest to Forex trading sometime in 2016 and we had been looking for an app which allows us to trade on the financial market without the risk of losing real cash because as students – we actually didn’t have extra cash for trading, moreover, we didn’t have any trading experience. So, from there we created the Trading Game. Janis and Rinalds (the developers of the app) worked on the technical side of things and then after putting an ad in the university notice board, two interns (Laura and Rolands) joined the team. Shortly after we released the first version of the app, Laura and Rolands loved the product so much that they stayed even after their internship was up. A little while after Kristaps and Louise joined the team and right now we are a team of six. When we got together in 2016, almost all of us were students. Janis the main developer, Rinalds and Rolands studied IT – they work on visuals and developing the app. Laura just finished her PR degree and is working on the marketing side of things. Kristaps has a degree in Mechatronic Engineering but didn’t fall in love with it so now he is doing videography. Louise studied Broadcast Journalism and is still in university finishing her BA in Modern Languages and Business Studies. Louise and Kristaps are working together, creating video content.

What are your plans for the future?

Our team is brainstorming on new ideas daily on how improve on our apps. That’s why we are working on the Trading simulator for Trading Game WEB (the same as in app, but now we want to offer users to also trade in web version). In this way we will cover all the platforms – android, ios and also web. As for future goals we want to build best platform for beginner traders and currently we are focusing on increasing our community and improving user experience! We have less focus is on profit and some of the team members are already dreaming about AI trading. By using the data we are gather on trading habits, we can create an ai meant for trading. It could possibly as easy as asking Alexa or Siri to invest and our ai will diversify your portfolio and make profits for you.
