We recently increased everyone’s assets, giving users an extra 4000 points and we started out new users with 5000 points. Read about it here.
SciCast is a research project and we appreciate the feedback of our users. See comment. We have changed the inner workings of the trading interface. The standard (safe mode) interface has been adjusted from using up to 4% of a user’s available points to up to 1% of his or her points. Now that we have 5x the starting points this is still a bit more of an effect with out overpowering the trade. This adjustment ensures a user can make more trades and be more involved in the market.
