Cryptocurrency trading is one of the core drivers of the blockchain space’s growth. After all, when every crypto-asset is capable of being transacted on an open market, the movement and circulation of value is only natural. It also serves to distribute an asset to potentially anyone around the world regardless of geography, a quality often overlooked. However, the current practice of trading crypto-assets involves constantly watching the market’s movements. The volatility of this market requires a level of vigilance that few are willing to provide and a level of experience and knowledge that few have cultivated. The goal of Autonio is to “make sense of a chaotic multitude of crypto-assets” with a decentralized trading platform that utilizes user-customized artificially intelligent bots to trade assets on the market. Night and day. Rain or shine.

The platform brings tried and true trading strategies leveraged in diverse markets such as Wall Street, Forex, and high-frequency trading and brings them within reach of the non-technical user. There are virtually no limits to the various strategies given the many parameters that can be set and the current “behavior” of the market at any given time.

“Autonio integrates Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain and CryptoTrading, which we believe is the Holy Trinity of NioTrading, a blockchained intelligent trading system,” says Project Lead Ali Raheman.

“With more than $1 billion being traded on a daily basis, a dispassionate AI bot working with human intuition and optimization in a decentralized platform is a quantum leap in human potential.”

So how does a trading novice navigate the market without walking into a Darwinian landscape where only the strongest, or smartest, survive?

By encouraging the share of knowledge through a gamified experience, Autonio users can reward/be rewarded for accessing/providing strategies with the highest performance.

The platform will post a leaderboard of the users with the best stats. The top traders who get a spot on the leaderboard will be rewarded with NIO tokens. Users can also tip NIO to traders or pay a set price as a consultation fee. While NIO tokens help incentivize cooperation, they are also required to access the platform.

“NIO stands for the Nexus of Intelligent Operations. As the name suggests, it aims to be the connecting link between AI operations concerning crypto-assets on a blockchained network. It grants access to a blockchained system that protects and adds value to AI engine-calculated information and makes its secure exchange possible. It’s an ERC 20 token (for the initial release) generated using the GNEISS P2P Ethereum distribution system.”

NIO will be used to securely trade algorithms and optimizations, receive or offer trading consultancy, access the platform, and reward the most profitable strategies.

“We have chosen Ethereum as the platform for the reliability and strength of its network. Ethereum smart contracts will allow ease of integrating ERC 20 tokens as utility tokens within the Autonio application connecting the trading interface built on PHP, Javascript, with Ethereum smart contracts in Solidity. In the initial release, the platform works as a p2p software/app/service where the bot runs locally. The AI engine and all in-platform transactions including powering the bot, buying/selling/sharing of AI optimisations and computation of leaderboard works on our blockchained network. Our decentralized network ensures immutable, safe, and secure transactions using smart contracts. Any updates to the bot will be through this network, ensuring protection of the platform from outside attack.

Investors and users can expect major announcements about the architecture of this network soon.”

Automated Nexus of Intelligent Operations (Autonio) is an AI powered robot and a platform for AI optimisations trading as the initial version, but it aims to be the connecting link between a blockchained intelligent network and the world of crypto-assets.

“The network will encourage third-party developers to build upon and integrate with Autonio. We have a bounty set for devs as incentive to build applications on this blockchained network and/or utilise our AI engine making Autonio the universal platform for undertaking intelligent operations. Hence we call the platform token the Nexus of Intelligent Operations or NIO.”

The future of Autonio is promising. It can be the first decentralized AI powered exchange that is simplified to the point where anybody can utilise the power of AI and still offer professional quality service.
