Countdown to trading, part 1 – Onboarding new companies to Echo

Day 1: Listing the first companies

On day 1 of Echo, we will start onboarding (or listing) the first companies. This means, we get everything ready so that you can trade their impact certificates – or immies for short.

Before one can trade a company’s immies, the most important thing is that we determine their opening price, i.e. the price trading starts at. And by we, we mean you. Here is how it works:

All participating users vote on the opening price for the immies of each company to be listed. You decide what you think the correct price for one immy of company X is. It’s quick, easy, and fun. Check out the screenshot!

Onboarding periods will last about a week. We then aggregate all of your ratings and combine them into the opening price.

Here is the good part: For participating in an Onboarding, we will reward you with free immies. 

And here is the really good part: The closer you came with your guess to the actual opening price of a company’s immies, the more immies we will reward you with!

The immies you receive for participating in Onboardings will form the basis of your very first portfolio on Echo. You’re off to a great start!
