LAB Radio Episode 33 – Seoul Korea’s Beyond Blocks with Jack Tan of Kronos, a platform bringing elite trading strategies to the average investor

In this episode, we’re at the Beyond Blocks in Seoul (the “capital city”), Korea. Chris Groshong, CEO of CoinStructive, caught up with Jack Tan of Kronos Token, a platform aimed at allowing token holders to access the same elite algorithmic trading strategies used by hedge funds.

Kronos helps to bridge the gap between retail untrained investors and the 1% who have unfair access to the majority of global wealth. Kronos and its team disagrees with this premise. To solve this problem, Kronos sources and nurtures elite investing and trading talent which opens up the skillsets and strategies of these teams to KRON holders.

In addition, Kronos leverages a variety of time-tested investment methodologies to battle unstable and volatile markets and pass the value to the users. This allows investors to benefit from enterprise trading strategies which help stabilize and even grow portfolios despite turbulent market conditions.

As stated on the Kronos website:

We are changing the rules once and for all. All KRON holders will have a chance to access the best strategies in quantitative trading and other investments within crypto. The mission of the KRONOS project is to:

  • Attract, foster and retain the best trading talent globally
  • Remove access barriers to the top investments
  • Maximize resilience of the ecosystem through the intelligence of decentralized governance

Our strategies carry a range of risk and return profiles, but are generally uncorrelated from the market. This means they can profit even when asset prices are falling. We will begin with high-frequency market making and proprietary trading, but will quickly add teams to trade “smart index”, statistical arbitrage, and discretionary small-cap strategies.
