Agent Based Modeling Framework for Cryptofinance

As stated in the previous post, Yupana - Global Vision, conventional modeling techniques for simulating complex environments have relied on a set of fixed rules to govern how the model is to function. Agent based models (ABM) have been used for this purpose, to represent complex systems such as those in evolutionary biology or economics. While methods of ABM have been effective for specific use-cases, they fail to be generalizable and scalable over multiple systems. Popular heuristics such as…

Introduction to Yupana: A Flexible Agent Based Modeling Framework

Complex systems like those in biology, economics, or ecology are difficult to represent and properly understand. Complex interactions, emergent properties, and high dimensionality make it difficult to disentangle the governing rules and systemic properties when trying to model a given environment. We often depend on external tools to help us see particular patterns that are otherwise non-salient. These tools help us to better understand narrow relationships, aggregate and filter large sets of…

Agent Based Modeling Framework for Cryptofinance

We live in a financial world where, if it takes you more than a few moments to discover a 300-page document in Mandarin from a People’s Bank of China website, translate it, understand its impact on the market, and deliver this actionable intelligence to your trading engine, you are already behind. The amount of data coming online is overwhelming current analytical tools that were built for the walled gardens of uniformly structured data.

All that glitters is not gold

In the burgeoning world of cryptofinance it is entirely possible to be seduced by the barrage of stories of the latest and greatest, to be lured to the potential of the shiny, new and disruptive, and in the process overlook fundamental technological factors that often can provide valuable insights into the future viability of a technology, it’s ability to attract a relevant developer community and then address the uses cases the project’s are intended to serve. While readers may have caught on…
