Pain Points

  • Users lacked comprehensive educational materials to build a foundation in trading, leaving them uncertain about market dynamics and strategies.


  • Many users found existing trading platforms too complex, leading to confusion and frustration, especially for beginners attempting to navigate the intricacies of buying and selling financial instruments.


  • Beginner traders found it challenging to practice without risking real money, which impeded their ability to fine-tune strategies and build confidence before entering the actual trading arena.
