November 20th 2018, London — Sharpe Capital and ETHLend are delighted to announce their exciting new cooperation partnership.
The Sharpe-ETHLend partnership was finalized following a meeting at Web Summit 2017 in Lisbon, Portugal. The newly established relationship provides ETHLend with privileged early access to the Global Sentiment Index data-feed during its Alpha and Beta developmental stages, delivering realtime insights into how the market perceives individual blockchain assets. Sharpe and ETHLend will work together to refine the product and optimize the product for further commercialisation.
This partnership is a key proof of the value of one of Sharpe Capital’s core products and future revenue streams — Sharpe is working to ensure the Global Sentiment Index becomes the world’s leading source for market sentiment data.Sharpe Capital Co-founder & CEO, Lewis Barber, at Web Summit 2017
Through collecting real human insights and combining them with cutting edge machine learning, Sharpe can far surpass the traditional approach to sentiment analysis derived from often highly unreliable analysis of social media feeds and news sources.
By joining forces with ETHlend, Sharpe Capital is able to tailor the Global Sentiment Index to an increasingly diverse customer base, and help to reduce risks associated with blockchain-driven lending — Dr. James A. Butler, Co-founder and COO at Sharpe Capital
