With all the ongoing changes on Quantopian I am wondering if there is an opportunity to create an open marketplace for trading algos. I am not not sure if there is any interest, or should Quantopian built it as a part of the platform, or if a forum post like this would be sufficient. Also I assume posting about this is not against Quantopian terms.
I'd love it if Quantopian would build this as a part of the platform where one could transparently browse and filter various algos, as well as help with the transaction (taking a cut as part of providing certain protections).
In the meantime perhaps the forum is enough to gauge interest. The advantage of using forum is that you a potential seller could easily attach a backtest.
