Numerai: About the Platform

Numerai is a hedge fund where the trading decisions are made solely by AI. The model is improved by contributions from a community of independent data scientists who can download data feed from Numerai for free and improve on the existing preditiction models.

The user improvements are then submitted to a weekly competition where the authors can earn prizes in USD and the Numerai native token Numeraire.

The innovative technology approach of Numerai lies in its use of structure-preserving encryption - data about financial markets are anonymized which prevents biases and overfitting, but as the structure of changes and relationships is kept, it still makes machine learning possible.

Why structure-preserving encryption

Numerai claims the stock market is somewhat inefficient with respect to new developments in machine learning because only a tiny fraction of the global machine learning talent has access to its data.

Structure-preserving encryption was developed as a way to make expensive datasets available to everyone but only for the purpose of feeding a machine learning model, without revealing the full raw data.

In the first month of operations, Numerai users uploaded 10,292 prediction sets — a total of 200,098,002 equity price predictions, which is how the overall Numerai prediction model improves.

Numerai: Token Promotion & Results

Numerai was funded through private placements in 2016. It raised 7.5 MM USD in total from Union Square Ventures, Fred Ehrsam and others.

The official Twitter account @numerai has raked up about 15k followers and as of October 2018 is starting to gain new traction after a plateau:

This new surge in popularity is related to the release of the Numerai marketplace called Erasure early in October 2018.

Erasure is a new decentralized data marketplace. It allows anybody to upload predictions, stake them with cryptocurrency, build a track record that everyone can verify, and earn money.

The Numeraire Token

Numerai deployed its own platform token first in June 2017. It is called Numeraire ($NMR) and is an Ethereum ERC20 token.

As of October 2018, the NMR token trades on Bittrex, Upbit and DDEX.
