Buy Kobe, sell Tiger on new Sports Stock Exchange
Ahmedabad, India – Fantasy Trader 1.2 for iOS offers sports fans the chance to buy and own shares of athletes as basketball Kobe Bryant and golfer Tiger Woods. The aim is to make a profit from trades, much like investors do when betting on the stocks of General Motors Co or Google Inc.
Created by sports fans, for sports fans, Fantasy Trader enables users to compete, interact and have vested interest in their passion. Traders showcase their sports acumen by acquiring and trading virtual shares of their favorite players, teams and leagues realizing market returns based on their skill.
Designed to appeal to sports fans, investors and gamblers alike, Fantasy Trader allows users to build a portfolio of shares in athletes. The shares are also delineated with ticker symbols, just like real stocks. So golfer Tiger Woods will have shares with ticker “TW” when issued.
Fantasy Trader is based on free market system that is driven by supply and demand. The platform quantifies all potential inputs to public perception in real time and “it is a virtual goods marketplace for next generation fantasy sports fan and a new fun way to learn about stock market dynamics” explains Rahul Patel.
The app has introduced popular athletes and teams across major World sports (American Football, Soccer, Basketball, Baseball, Golf, and many more) and expects to expand to other sports as well. Unlike fantasy sports, trading on FantasyTrader occurs for all sports on a year round basis, 24×7.
