Platform Mechanics

How The CoinFi Ecosystem Works

Bringing Wall Street Level Trading Intelligence To The Blockchain


Coinfi ecosystem transparent

CoinFi is the first decentralized market intelligence platform for crypto. It all starts with the CoinFi token.

Being a CoinFi token holder gives you access to CoinFi's cutting edge crypto financial intelligence through two primary channels: 1) financial media and 2) trading technology.


Cryptocurrency Financial Media
Research, Analysis, & Market Moving News

The media side of CoinFi's platform offers crypto research, analysis, and market moving news, overlaid on top of real-time price charts.

While crypto research, analysis, and news already exists on the internet, there is still no single canonical source that surfaces all of the relevant market intelligence a crypto trader needs to stay on top of the markets, the same way a Bloomberg Terminal does for equities traders.

Fundamental value exists in digging below the surface. Not every investor has the time to scroll through Twitter, Reddit, forums, Slack/Telegram groups, Google, etc. in order to uncover hidden threads that may be relevant for trading. Diving deep often reveals valuable information to investors and traders, but is a time consuming activity.

Our technology systems aggregate this information and our in-house editorial team curates and filters the incoming news articles to ensure only the most important items are shown for optimum signal-to-noise ratio, saving you time and energy on research.

In addition, community analysts who uncover and publish useful information vetted by CoinFi’s crowdsourced fact-checking system and in-house moderation team are rewarded by the CoinFi ecosystem via tokens.

Trading Technology
Signals, Algorithms, & Bots

The technology side of CoinFi’s platform brings Wall Street caliber tools to the crypto market, and makes them available to the everyday crypto investor.

At the moment there are only a very limited range of signals and tools available in the crypto market. In fact, CoinFi’s very first trading signal was created when co-founder Timothy Tam started trading crypto on the side and realized he didn’t have access to any of the tools he used as hedge fund manager.

CoinFi's technology platform offers trading signals, trading algorithms, automated trading bots and data feeds. The platform includes in-house tools developed by ex-Wall Street technologists, as well as a marketplace that provides access to crowdsourced trading signals. Users who contribute their trading signals will receive CoinFi tokens commensurate to the community's assessment of their value.

Watch the videos to see some examples of trading signals that CoinFi has developed.
