What is investing in algorithmic trading?

Algorithmic trading is a semi-DeFi product on the Waves blockchain that is driven by the automated market order execution system based on pre-programmed trading commands or specifications.

You can invest in algorithmic trading. The invested funds are accumulated on the Waves blockchain and then proxied into algorithmic trading strategies among few centralized exchanges, like Bitmex, Binance, Okex, etc., part of the invested funds are also used on Waves.Exchange.

Investing in algorithmic trading is associated with high profit and therefore, there are some risks. You can learn more about any possible risks in terms of investing in the Algorithmic Trading available on Waves.Exchange.

When you invest in algorithmic trading, you can select the risk level of your investment on your own (either Moderate or Aggressive). Based on that selection, you receive a certain type of ALP assets in return. ALP is the assurance asset that proves that your assets are invested in the smart contract

You can withdraw your assets at any time, i.e. exchange your ALP assets to the assets that you originally invested at a new price. Your income is the difference between the ALP price when you invest and the further price fluctuations when your investment is over.
