This app hosts monthly stock trading contests, which is perfect if you are the kind of person who obsessively watches the market. Similar to fantasy sports leagues, but for the world of business, Vestly lets you win money for choosing stocks.

Incubated by Foundermark, the app gives users the fun opportunity of playing with stocks without having to invest any real assets. There are no curated lists or additional information when it comes to picking your stocks once you start using the platform and creating a profile, which is likely the most challenging aspect of the game.

The people with the top 100 profiles at the end of the month will split $10,000, with the top player winning a larger share. There are also stock trading contests every six months for a new car.
