What we do: Instavest is a trading platform where certain “Lead Investors,” can post about their stock market investments. Other investors can then replicate those trades and offer a tip of their profits to the investors they modeled.
Why it's a big deal: Instavest offers casual investors insights they can use to their advantage, and incentivizes top investors to use their platform to earn extra on their sales.
