Kung hei fat choy! It’s the Lunar New Year here in Hong Kong so the city’s usual lightning pace has slowed to a crawl, but that hasn’t stopped the CoinFi team from having a busy week! Here’s some of what we’ve been up to since our last update:
The last 6 months has been a non-stop sprint for the CoinFi team. We’ve gone from a team of 3 cofounders to a team of 12 and growing. Going through an ICO gave us the opportunity to share the vision for CoinFi with the world and build a passionate community of early adopters who are excited to see CoinFi grow. However, the ICO process also demanded the full-time attention of the entire CoinFi team, leaving us with less time for product development. With token issuance complete, we finally have time again to focus on our core mission of bringing Wall Street caliber trading intelligence to the blockchain. We’ve been hard at work pushing towards our first big milestone, the April 6 open beta launch. Here’s an update on some of what we’ve been up to in the past couple weeks.
You can read the steps below to learn more about how to use the Kucoin platform to acquire COFI tokens: Users can start depositing COFI to KuCoin January 29th, 2018 at 18:00 (UTC +8), and trading COFI on KuCoin January 29th, 2018 at 22:00 (UTC +8).
If you received COFI tokens, these instructions will show you how you can access them.
Here at CoinFi we've been pedal to the metal for the past few weeks, and we've finally reached a point where we can come up for air and give you all a more in-depth update. In this post, we're going to talk about a few things, one of which is incredibly exciting:
- We'll give a recap of the tokensale and an update on token metrics (supply etc).
- We'll talk more about the upcoming airdrop for those who passed KYC but missed out on the tokensale.
- We'll save the best for last, and talk about our upcoming Kucoin listing!
This is an announcement that the CoinFi whitelist will be closing in 48 hours. Yes, you read that correctly. After 48 hours if you have not completed your KYC application, you will not be able to participate in the CoinFi token sale. Because of the overwhelming demand, we are also reducing the individual cap for the token sale from 25 ETH to 15 ETH. This will help spread our token distribution wider throughout our growing community and create a more equitable process for everyone.
We are looking for a hard working, enthusiastic community manager in either U.S. or European time-zone to help us manage our growing community. This job is full-time and will require the chosen candidate to be very active within our online communities - Telegram, Reddit, Twitter etc. Our team is based in Hong Kong but the job can be completely remote. Some knowledge of cryptocurrency and cryptocurrency investing would definitely be advantageous but is not required. Experience with community management would definitely be preferred. Please outline in your application exactly why you would be a good choice for this position. Payment for the role will be $3000 USD/month. Applications should be emailed to [email protected] Please use the subject line 'CoinFi Community Manager Role' or your application will be filtered. I look forward to your applications. Thanks, Glen (CoinFi Operations Director)
This post is actually going to teach you how to avoid getting scammed or phished during ANY tokensale, but as the CoinFi launch gains traction and we receive more and more attention, there are inevitably going to be some scammers trying to con you out of your money.
With all the hype around Cryptocurrency recently and CoinFi’s Pre-sale launch date approaching soon (January 15th 2018) we wanted to capture some of CoinFi’s feature pieces from around the web.1. Huffington Post mentioned CoinFi in one of the ‘4 Must Have Cryptocurrency Tools For 2018’ “CoinFi — With the monstrous growth of the cryptocurrency world and ICOs blooming every day, how will one navigate this constantly changing world? How do we accomplish the tedious and massively time consuming research needed to properly make well thought out decisions? Enter, CoinFi.” 4 Must Have Cryptocurrency Tools For 2018
To participate in the CoinFi token sale you'll need to give us your Ethereum address. This will be the address you send Ethereum to us through and receive your CoinFi tokens with. We track your contribution amount by linking this Ethereum address with your account on CoinFi - this process is called whitelisting. That sounds simple enough, but there are a few things we need to specify first:
- Only a whitelisted Ethereum address can participate in the token sale.
- You can't contribute by sending Ethereum directly from an exchange such as Coinbase, Kraken, or anywhere else. You'll need to create your own Ethereum wallet and use that address to send in your contribution.
