Rap Snacks Launches Free App To Teach Users The Stock Market
If you thought their potato chips changed your life, Rap Snacks is now coming with a new way to help its customers and even non-customers. If you ever thought about getting into the stock market or investments, this Hip Hop themed chip company has you covered by launching a new app designed to teach users and help get their feet wet.
The free app is called Stock Boss Up, a digital stock market simulator that allows users to get their feet wet without investing their own capital. Users can track the market in real-time while investing up to $1 million of simulated money into publicly traded companies. Rap Snacks CEO James Lindsay founded the brand in 1994, where he wanted to combine his love for food and Hip Hop. Since then, the brand has catapulted into a successful endeavor, creating partnerships with artists like Migos, Cardi B and Fetty Wap. Last year, Master P contributed to the relaunch of the brand with Lindsay.
The Boss Up Foundation, its philanthropic branch, created the free app to enhance financial literacy. The application’s launch was expedited due to the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to an intensively high increase in unemployment in the United States. The app is available for download in the Apple Store and Google Play. After downloading, users can join a group geared toward a specific investing topic, create a stock post and manage their portfolio.
“Our community is dedicated to helping investors perform well in the stock market by using the wisdom of the crowd. Our community strives to have fun while teaching members how to improve portfolio performance,” the Stock Boss Up app website states.
