Dear Subscriber,

P2P-Picks has maintained a beefy web server to deliver our LendingClub picks since our launch about 18 months ago. However, in recent times, such delivery has been inefficient. The picks are often fully invested within a few seconds of release, leading to stale picks (clicking the "Go" button with no investment). At the same time, people have asked for more automation solutions because they do not have time to log into our site multiple times a day.

So, we have deprecated the publications from our website and all picks will now be delivered via API or through one of our partners. To continue using P2P-Picks, you have a number of options:

1)   Sign up with one of our delivery partners, such as BlueVestment (write to Nathan, as we have a grandfather clause to allow signups with his system). We are working to bring on another delivery partner within the coming two weeks. Stay tuned.

2)   If you are a programmer and comfortable taking things into your own hands, write to us for a DIY API kit. We will provide our API specs and you can interface with our systems and obtain our publications directly.

3)   Invest with LendAcademy Investments, a registered investment advisor, for which we serve as a credit modeler.

Yours Sincerely,

Bryce Mason
Principal

I pour one out for my home boys.  RIP P2P Picks!  I'm going to miss our scheduled bonding four times a day.

I use Bluevestment.  I'm an overly sarcastic person, don't take most of what I say seriously -- especially when it starts with pouring it out for my home boys.  I was going to generate a meme for it, but couldn't find a good enough picture.
