It's not the first on-line stock trading emulation game, but the people at Invoost have hit upon what they feel will entice prospective traders everywhere. They looked at existing online systems and analysed why those systems came across in the main as boring - no real money ( hence little emotional involvement) was changing hands.
So the new social investment game Invoost was dreamt up, where users initially trade and compete with friends for virtual money, yet have the chance to win real money.
Jonathan Levy and Tyler Maglione were two of the stars at Spain Startup & Investor summit July 2012 where their presentation inspired many to enrol on the site straight away.
I'm one of those who were blown away by the presentation. Invoost is looking to become the world leader in their field, and I believe they will accomplish this - in fact I'm betting on it.
