Social media isn’t just for fun, it’s a place for promoting brands, selling goods and even exchanging money. A new startup is taking that a step further.

Instavest plans to be a platform to help budding investors. CCTV’s Mark Niu filed this report from Silicon Valley in California.

More details:

  • The platform Instavest, which partnered with brokerage firm Tradier, allows users to follow other investors and be notified instantly when they make trades.
  • If a user profits from following an investor’s advice, they are given the option to tip that investor when they sell their stock.
  • Startup Instavest says, so far, every single profitable user has tipped between 10 to 12 percent.
