The story of Nozomi
Back in 2018, Nicholas took a week to come up with a simple price tracking engine capable of dynamically supporting new exchange endpoints.
Fast forward a month later, Nicholas traveled to Japan as part of his graduation trip from Singapore Polytechnic. After spending a couple of days exploring the beautiful city of Osaka, he decided to travel to Kyoto and Japan in the search for more jaw-dropping scenery. Throughout the journey, he was always on a train, specifically, a shinkansen (also known as a bullet train) called Nozomi. Since traveling took hours between cities, he gained a curiosity in the complexity of the transport system in Japan and went on to explore the web to learn more about the transport infrastructure in Japan while commuting and was astonished to find the reliability, efficiency, and speed of the shinkansen.
Since the tracking engine did not bear any name at the point of time, it struck him that the engine should be named after the most modern shinkansen to date, Nozomi. To Nicholas, Nozomi embodies the qualities of the Nozomi shinkansen, capable of delivering data quickly, reliably, and efficiently.
