AlphaBlock has a listed solution on Nasdaq and will be using the investment to enhance its product line for both bullish or bearish market scenarios for global markets.

While the world seems to have a solution for every problem, an app for everything, one simple problem about bubbles and crisis bothers no one. How to make bubbles less bubbly and crisis less severe?
