Stockpools Announcement

Apr 23, 2019

Since our inception in 2011, Stockpools has provided a platform for investors to come and learn the ropes of the stock market. The gaming platform has enabled us to build a community we are proud of, and one we continue to work day-in-day-out to grow and support. In doing so, our goal is to provide you, our users, the best possible service we can provide, while keeping it engaging and fun for you to interact with.

Today marks the day where we transition to more than a gaming platform. I am pleased to present to you the new Stockpools. We have been hard at work over the past nine months to completely overhaul the technology and our brand to position this service for 2019 and beyond.

Below, I have outlined some of the changes we have made, our reasoning behind these changes, what you can expect from us moving forward and what you can expect from us over the next year.

What's Different?

Pools: We have broken down our pool page between Featured Company, Prize, Market Indexes and Industry Indexes. We aim to provide you with pools that are fun and engaging, and by breaking them into sections, we hope this will be easier to see what is on offer on our website.

Companies: Navigate to this page to search stocks. We have kept this page pretty simple for now but expect some changes over the next 2-3 months as we bring you an easier way to find your favourite public companies.

People: We plan to bring you a completely new community area in Q4 2019. Our aim to provide a community whereby you can learn from one another. Data is a powerful thing, and we aim to harness it without compromising your privacy.

What's New?

Your Dashboard: On your first log in to the platform, you will no longer be presented with an overload of information, but everything will be tailored to you. The dashboard feature allows us to bring you new features and products overnight, and we will gradually announce these over the coming months.

Picker: This is the architecture our users use to make picks in a pool. This has been the biggest overhaul, and it contains a more appealing user flow. Be sure to check it out!

Blog: Our biggest change is the addition of a blog system. This enables us to write about what's going on in the industry, outline important changes at Stockpools, and more importantly, provides us a place to announce some larger pools so you can win more!

Your Profile: As mentioned above, we plan to completely overhaul the community aspect of our website. For now, you can see a little more information about your interaction with us.

Help: We have outlined everything we could possibly think of and broken it down in our brand-new help section. If you have any worries or concerns about what we're trying to achieve at Stockpools, we implore you to look at this.

What's to Come

Now, it's time for some new features and our plans. Please note, these are subject to industry developments and elements outside of our control.  

Stockpools App: We understand that a lot of us live life on the go, so being able to make your picks and check your pools on the go is extremely important.. Our plan is to launch the app this summer, and we are very excited with some of the groundwork we've been working on these past few weeks.

We are aware that our app technology has not been up to our high standards, but we plan to blow that out of the water with our offering in the summer.

User Section: As mentioned, we plan to bring you a new user profile section that will bring new features tailored to you, on your own dashboard, so look out for that in Q4 2019.

Super Secret New Product: Finally, we plan to announce a brand-new product offering that is separate, but also very closely aligned with our gaming platform. We are still working out the best way to deliver this to you, so that's all we'll say for now.

Thank you for being part of the Stockpools community. As always, we value user feedback, and please do reach out to the team with any suggestions / concerns you may have at support@stockpools.com
