How it works 📋
What does "trading" actually mean?
"Trading" refers to the buying and selling of your "shares" of players. Who are you trading with? You are trading with PredictionStrike as the house, which means you don't need a buyer or seller to execute your desired trade -- you can trade anytime you want to.
Which sports are supported?
We currently support football, basketball, baseball, soccer, and MMA. We are planning to expand to soccer and other sports this year.
How do I get started?
Go to the account page and add money to your account by linking your bank account. From there search for your favorite players. Buy some shares and start building your portfolio!
Do all players change price in the same way?
No. NFL Players projected < 5 fantasy points (PPR), NBA players projected <15 fantasy points, and MLB players projected less than .21 (batters) and .35 (pitchers) do not move based upon in game performance. They will, however, move based upon supply and demand. Lastly, NFL kickers are unique in that they only move on supply and demand.
How do share prices move?
Prices move based upon how athletes perform relative to their fantasy projections. The more an athlete beats their projection by, the more their share price will increase and the more they miss by, the more their share price will decrease. MMA fighter share prices move based upon the opponent that they face and the result of the fight. Furthermore, fighters will earn share price bonuses for knockouts and submissions. Additionally, if enough shares of a player are purchased, that will increase the stock price. Similarly, if enough shares of a player are sold, that will decrease the stock price. More specifically, for every 200 shares purchased (or fraction thereof) the share price will increase 1% and for every 200 shares sold (or fraction thereof), the share price will decrease 1%.
How are fantasy projections set?
Our projections are set by our data provider, SportsData.IO. Those projections are constantly updated until game time.
How are player fantasy points calculated?
NFL fantasy points are calculated based upon standard PPR +1 scoring. NBA fantasy points are calculated by our data provider according to their formula. The formula is as follows: Three Point Field Goals: 3 points Two Point Field Goals: 2 points Free Throws Made: 1 point Rebounds: 1.2 points Assists: 1.5 points Blocked Shots: 2 points Steals: 2 points Turnovers: -1 points. MLB fantasy points are calculated using the Yahoo Sports scoring model and are discounted to facilitate profitable trading.
Are there any limits on price movement?
The most an NFL player's share price can increase in one game is double their original price. The most an NBA player's share price can increase in one game is 50% their original price. The most an MLB player’s share price can increase or decrease in one game is 6%. There is no limit for MMA.
What happens if a player is injured?
If a player is injured during a game, their share price will change according to the fantasy points they scored in the game until the injury occurred. If a player is listed as injured before a game, that game will not affect their share price.
Can a share price go to $0.00?
Yes. In the case where a player's share price goes to $0.00, that player will be reset to $1.00 and all users who hold shares of that player will have those shares swept.
How long will the game last?
PredictionStrike will last forever. Users are free to trade on the platform on all players year round.
How do I get paid?
Users are free to cash out at any time. When users cash out, they are paid to their linked bank account or via PayPal (whichever method is preferred).
Where is my money actually held?
User deposits are kept in a secure separate fund.
Is this gambling or daily fantasy sports?
PredictionStrike is neither gambling nor daily fantasy sports since we don't use an all or nothing model.
What happens if a player retires?
If a player retires, users will be able to continue trading shares of that player, however the share price will only move according to trading volume.
