Though legislation has stalled during one of the biggest crises of our time, there's no doubt that Capitol Hill is home to some of the finest investing minds of our generation, which is why the WallStreetBets decentralized application (WSBDApp), together with Digital Markets (DIGTL), is today announcing the listing approval on MERJ Exchange (MERJ) of the Insider Portfolio (ticker symbol: INSDR), a portfolio that tracks America's favorite politicians' trading strategies.
INSDR is a portfolio composed of securities that are fully liquid, which in this case consists of the market-beating investments found in Speaker Nancy Pelosi's portfolio. DIGTL, the technology platform well known for linking innovative assets with global investors through a network of digital securities exchanges, will connect WallStreetBets with award-winning global securities exchange MERJ to list the Insider Portfolio, supported by advisory partner Entoro, an investment bank.
"If you are not blessed with the financial savviness of the U.S. Congress members, the world of investing can be inaccessible and intimidating to the novice investors we know as constituents," said Jaime Rogozinski, founder of WallStreetBets and strategic partner of the WSBDApp project. "In these turbulent economic times, not only Americans but the entire global community can look to our national leadership for unparalleled investing advice, and it's never been easier with the introduction of our Insider Portfolio."
To learn more and access INSDR, visit wsbdapp.com/insider. All interested investors can sign up and complete Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements through the DIGTL platform. Funds can be added by wire transfer, USDC, MetaMask wallet, or credit card. Once the account is created, global investors (in ~180 countries) can trade on the secondary market. Trading is open 20 hours a day and will transition to 24/7, 365 for truly global access.
"By engaging WSB's passionate and global community of investors, DIGTL will expand access to compliant financial products with a completely integrated and full-circuit capital market structure that can't be interrupted," said James Wallace, Chair at DIGTL. "DIGTL's leading technology infrastructure simplifies the murky and complex process of trading securities and other assets with the efficiency of the stock market and the democratic structure of DeFi."
"MERJ's mission has always been to democratize investing on a global scale, and thanks to WallStreetBets and DIGTL, we're excited to add this listing to our exchange and enable investors globally to access high-quality assets," remarked MERJ Exchange CEO, Ed Tuohy.
