Hey CoinFi Fans,
In this update, we’ll be taking a look back at the CoinFi Whitepaper and our road ahead through crypto winter.
A Look Back At The CoinFi Whitepaper
Back when we published the CoinFi whitepaper in October 2017, here is what we had to say about our business model:
At the time, we saw a market driven by massive retail speculation. In the long-term, we saw institutional traders as the primary market for our platform.
Last week we published a post
describing the introduction of our first token utility, which allows COFI holders to stake 25k tokens for access to the CoinFi Trading Signals beta
It’s been exciting to see users staking their COFI tokens in order to get access:
In fact, COFI stakers are now collectively the 11th largest holder of COFI tokens on the blockchain
As of this writing, beta users have staked 2,960,622.9548 COFI tokens for early access to CoinFi Trading Signals, which is 1.685% of the circulating supply of COFI.
The tagline for our signals is “Professional trading signals backed by data science”, so this month we thought we’d share some of the data science underlying these trading signals.
It’s been a rough quarter for altcoins and ICOs. The euphoria of 2017 feels like a distant memory.
So how’s CoinFi doing?
The good news is that we’re focused on the long-term, so a crypto winter (if indeed winter is here) doesn’t affect our plans.
However, a bear market like this is as good a time as any to re-examine some fundamental assumptions.
Let’s take a look at our roadmap for 2018Q3, 2018Q4, and 2019Q1
It feels like time just zips by these days. Partly that's because crypto moves lightning fast, but also every single day has been jam-packed at the CoinFi office.
August has been no exception!
