Most of us are familiar with exchange tokens such as Binance’s BNB and Kucoin’s KCS, but what makes each token unique? How do the token models differ from those of other exchanges? How do you value these tokens? What gives them utility? The CoinFi crypto experts dive deeply into this topic in this episode of the CoinFi Podcast.

HONG KONG - July 11, 2018 - CoinFi (KuCoin, Cobinhood: COFI), the leading market intelligence platform offering Wall Street-caliber trading tools, signals, and analysis on the cryptocurrency market, today continued to strategically extend its reach and coin availability with a listing on Fcoin, the China-based exchange known for its transactional mining model and high trading volume. The announcement follows a $15 million ICO and listings on KuCoin and Cobinhood earlier this year. Investors can begin trading COFI on Fcoin July 11 at 6:00PM HKT. COFI, a utility token, grants CoinFi users access to news, analysis, and hedge-fund caliber trading tools on the CoinFi platform. It’s also used to compensate research contributors and analysts in a token-for-information ecosystem, with the highest-quality contributors rewarded more frequently by the crowd.
Here’s an unfiltered look at the first half of 2018 - both at the progress we’ve made, and the setbacks we’ve had, and what you can expect from us going forward.
Reflecting on the First Half of 2018LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman once noted that building a startup is a lot like jumping off a cliff, then assembling an airplane as you’re hurtling towards the ground. In assembling that airplane we’ve had some setbacks, but we’re still very far from hitting the ground. With the benefit of hindsight, there are a few key things we could have done better in the first half of 2018. We’ve learned from those mistakes and have taken steps to make the second half of 2018 a big one for the CoinFi platform.
HONG KONG - June 25, 2018 - CoinFi, the leading market intelligence platform offering Wall Street-caliber trading tools, signals, and analysis on the cryptocurrency market, today announced its coin listing on Cobinhood, the zero-fee cryptocurrency exchange offering free spot and margin trading. The announcement comes after a successful ICO earlier this year in which CoinFi raised $15 million in a private token sale to further develop its lineup of trading and analysis tools and build out its in-house and crowdsourced crypto news ecosystem. Already trading on the KuCoin exchange (COFI:ETH), CoinFi’s listing on Cobinhood expands its reach and availability to the trading community. The team predominantly comprises former elite Wall Street traders, technologists, data scientists, and financial analysts, and the company has plans to roll out trading signals and advanced token metrics - among other tools - later this year.
It’s been an exciting month at CoinFi, with both the in-person and remote teams growing rapidly, and product development accelerating. This past month we continued to focus on recruitment and developing the features scheduled for release this summer. We’re excited about the feature rollouts we have coming up, and by the time fall comes around, we expect that CoinFi will finally leave the beta stage behind.
