As CrunchDAO ushers in a new era of research collaboration, it paves the way for a future where the best researchers and data-scientist thrive and make substantial contributions to the financial industry.
CrunchDAO is revolutionizing the way researchers connect with hedge funds, asset managers, and financial institutions. Our unique approach acts as a trustworthy intermediary, bridging the gap between talented researchers from various fields of science and these institutions seeking the best predictions and models. By leveraging our platform, researchers can unlock a world of opportunities, earning significant rewards while working remotely and redefining the traditional partner/model in the financial industry.
Connecting Intellectual Property with Financial Powerhouses
CrunchDAO’s primary function is to establish a symbiotic relationship between exceptional researchers and financial institutions. Through our platform, researchers gain access to hedge funds, asset managers, and financial institutions eager to leverage the power of collective intelligence to obtain accurate and valuable predictions regularly. Participants retain ownership of their intellectual property (IP) but grant CrunchDAO a license to perform specific tasks such as running their code (in code competitions), re-training models, and scoring. This license does not extend to the financial institutions that only access the research output: predictions. Researchers have the freedom to revoke this license at any time, without providing any reason. In specific challenges, winners may receive offers from organizers to share their IP, but the choice is entirely up to the researchers.
Unleashing the Potential of the Best Researchers
CrunchDAO recognizes the immense value that outstanding research brings to the world. By leveraging Competitive Science, CrunchDAO set the stage for the best researcher to stand out. Web3 anonymity helps remove demographic barriers in research, providing equal opportunities to anyone with the necessary tools. For example, institutional quality data becomes accessible to all, thanks to an anonymization process that empowers everyone to compete on equal grounds.
Earning Potential and Remote Work Opportunities
Our primary goal is to provide researchers with substantial financial rewards. We envision a future where the best researchers earn well over $100,000 annually by licensing their IP through a trusted third-party intermediary like CrunchDAO. We strive to offer compensation that rivals that of a partner in a hedge fund, all while providing the flexibility of remote work. Moreover, researchers can connect their IP to multiple financial institutions simultaneously, a groundbreaking opportunity that sets us apart.
Creating a Global Research Community
CrunchDAO’s vision extends beyond connecting researchers with financial institutions. It aims to foster a global research community, where collaboration and innovation thrive. By promoting interaction and knowledge exchange among researchers, CrunchDAO enhances the quality and accuracy of predictions, benefiting researchers, the institutions they serve, and the scientific community. This is in line with the protocol efforts in the Decentralized Science field (DeSci) focussed on challenging traditional academic incentives structures, fostering incremental improvements, and fighting the tragedy of anti-commons with its DeSci platform.
CrunchDAO is reshaping the landscape of hedge funds and asset management, presenting researchers with unparalleled opportunities for financial rewards, and financial institutions with the best research. This vision ensures that researchers can keep their IP and leverage it.
