A friend has asked the quintessential question again.  Which is actually a good thing don’t get us wrong.  We love to dive into new data and discuss the uses and abuses of financial tech tools.  So here we go.  By the way, the quintessential question is:  ‘How do I know that your Vira stuff is… Read more »

Viracocha Whitepaper

Posted by & filed under About, How to use Vira.

Here at Viracocha, we are about creating technical analysis tools to help with the reduction of risk, and hopefully better trading decisions.

New Feature – The power of Intentions

Posted by & filed under How to use Vira, News.

We have added two new features to the VIRA FINANCE application.  These features deal with the Power of Intentionality, and with Prestige Points.

In the words of Neo: ‘Upgrades’

Posted by & filed under General, News.

Yes, it is that time of the cycle again. The time where we small application owners have to do the rounds and accommodate the ‘planned obsolescence’ regimes of the great big ones. Our app crashed a couple of weeks ago, and we have been working on a solution pronto! So Viracocha will be back –… Read more »

Halloween Reviews!

Posted by & filed under News.

We have a Halloween review this week.  It appeared on the  ‘What is on iPhone’ website.  I am transcribing it as it appears in the link. Not everything on the App Store are games and Flappy Bird clones. For a lot of people, their iPhones and iPads are a fundamental tool for their jobs… Read more »
