What the Founder has to say:
Divij Goyal, the co-founder of TradeX, said, “We are building the platform with a vision to build a single source of truth where people can build perspective from what the masses are thinking. With wide social media penetration, misinformation or lack of information, we end up building one-sided views. With TradeX, people can know what other people around them think. Users use TradeX to form their opinion about any event as well as trade to seek financial incentive on their opinion.”
