It takes a special kind of person to create something uniquely revolutionary. Alphacat’s founder Dr. Bin Li is definitely that.
To see how he got to where he is today, let’s take a look at the making of the man, from Li’s early education right up until he created Alphacat.
Notably gifted from an early age, Li was accepted into the prestigious China University of Science and Technology at just 16 years of age.
While completing his studies, he caught the eye of Dr. Tsung-Dao Lee, a Chinese American physicist and Nobel laureate in Physics. Dr. Lee recognized Li’s potential and decided to sponsor his further education overseas.
The young prodigy left for the United States and enrolled at New York University and in 1992, where he gained a Ph.D.
Following the completion of his postdoctoral research at the highly regarded NYU Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Dr. Bin Li was employed by investment bank Merrill Lynch. This marked the beginning of a successful career on Wall Street.
Li quickly rose through the ranks of Merrill Lynch to become Vice President. Not content to rest on his laurels, Li also assumed the position of Director of Global Quantitative Trading Strategies Group.
Li and five others formed the board of the of UBS North America’s Executive Committee. In 2001, Li and his fellow board members created AASTOCKS.com, a popular financial web portal that grew to become the largest of its kind in Hong Kong.
Li has also served as Chairman of Westport Financial LLC, the Chief Operating Officer of Ping Capital, the CIO of Yellow River Fund, and was the Senior Fund Manager at famous hedge fund Paloma Partners.
But as successful as was in business, Li yearned for something more. He wanted to give everyday people the opportunity to discover the vast opportunities of investment, both within China and internationally.
This ambition led to the creation of Alphacat. The AI cryptocurrency trading platform is revolutionary because it will allow everybody – not just the ultra-wealthy – to take advantage of its world-class trading robots.
Li built a team of over 30 individuals with expertise in the fields of artificial intelligence, finance technology, machine learning, and blockchain technology.
Since its inception, Alphacat has been reinventing the dynamics of cryptocurrency trading, giving ordinary traders the tools to make sound investments in an emerging market.
Perhaps the best explanation of what Alphacat is all about comes from Bin Li, himself: “The vision of Alphacat is to make quality investment advice more accessible for the average person by simplifying the whole cryptocurrency exchange process through a smart interplay of AI-driven robot advisors and analysis of big data to give a market prediction accuracy of 60% and above”.
It takes an ambitious person to follow an ambitious dream and in Bin Li, Alphacat has just that. 2018 promises to be an exciting year for the project and with some big announcements coming soon, this is definitely one to watch.
