We are happy to announce some major new features that we’ve added to the DSTOQ App, which we hope to make investing even more accessible and affordable to people in emerging markets.

A group of people surrounding Ken Thompson and Dennis Ritchie were quite busy at Bell Laboratories shaping the world as we know it today. They invented a milestone in programming languages — C, the breakthrough operational system Unix, the first shell, UTF-8 and a long list of others that alone would have been enough to receive a Turing award.
