Platform Mechanics

How The CoinFi Ecosystem Works

Bringing Wall Street Level Trading Intelligence To The Blockchain


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.

How Does The CoinFi Token Fit In This Ecosystem?


The CoinFi token (COFI) has 2 primary utility functions – it not only unlocks access to CoinFi’s market intelligence platform, it also helps reward community contributors for contributing their research, analysis, news tips, and trading signals to the CoinFi ecosystem.

Access to the token unlocks 3 tiers of access to the CoinFi market intelligence platform:

Basic Access

User stakes 10k COFI tokens. *

Requiring tokens remain staked helps reward token holders and reduces price volatility.

  • Market moving news feed
  • Most research & analysis
  • Basic trading signals
  • Advanced portfolio management tools
* subject to change, note this minimum requirement is not applicable to token sale participants

Premium Access

User pays subscription fee in COFI tokens and also stakes for Basic Access.

All features in Basic, plus:
  • Premium research & analysis
  • Real time alerts via email, SMS, and push notifications
  • Algorithms (e.g. best execution price)
  • Sentiment analysis
  • Advanced data feeds

Auction Exclusive Access

Auction bids require COFI tokens.

Certain platform features have decaying value as the number of users with access increases. To preserve the value of these features, access will be granted on an auction basis to determine the market price.

  • Advanced trading signals
  • Arbitrage bot
  • More to come!

In addition to these paid tiers, there will be a free tier.

Free Access

Any user can always access the basic CoinFi financial media platform.

In order to build a following and gain traction in the space, we will always offer the basic financial media platform functionality for free to the cryptocurrency community. Similar to Google Finance or Yahoo Finance, this level of access provides news stories overlaid on top of basic interactive price charts for all the major altcoins, along with a basic portfolio management tool.




Community Contributors Unlocking The Wisdom Of The Crowd

On the other side of the coin - no pun intended – CoinFi has a community of contributors who get rewarded for their work via CoinFi tokens. These community members provide the crowdsourced intelligence that helps power the CoinFi platform.

On the media side, contributors are incentivized to provide research, analysis, real time news tips, as well as fact checking services.

On the technology side, contributors provide trading signals, access to which is auctioned off in the CoinFi Marketplace.

Quality Assurance

How does the CoinFi platform ensure rewards are distributed fairly and quality is maintained?

Any content provided by a contributor, whether it’s research, analysis, a news tip, or a trading signal – is run through several layers of filtering to ensure that users can access the wisdom of the crowds while avoiding the noise.



Crowdsourced Fact Checking

First, there is a crowdsourced fact checking and peer review layer to ensure that all contributor content is vetted by the community.

In-house Moderation & Editorial Team

CoinFi’s in-house team of moderators acts as the final filtering layer in the ecosystem. They monitor the platform for bad actors, fraud, and attempts to game the system for token rewards.

The end result is a platform that surfaces high level research and analysis, timely market-moving news, and incentivizes the development of cutting edge trading tools that are a critical part of the workflow of every trader, fund manager, and crypto investor.

Peer Review

All users in the CoinFi ecosystem also have the ability to vote and downvote. Furthermore, each user has their identity verified through the blockchain to prevent Sybil attacks (otherwise known as sock puppets); they are also assigned a trust score based on their past actions on the platform.

CoinFi’s trust score algorithm processes this information to help surface quality content, while pushing down and rejecting false information.

Automated quality assurance filters include:

  • Identity verification via blockchain
  • Spam blacklist
  • Spelling and grammar checks
  • Machine learning spam detection algorithms

Platform

Trading Signals

Hedge Fund Caliber Trading Signals

Market inputs such as price, volume, social signals, and news, will be fed into in-house and user contributed models that are overlaid with machine learning algorithms to output intelligent trading signals.

These signals can generate real-time alerts via SMS, email, push notifications, or API webhooks to notify traders about changes in market conditions.

Traders who use these signals to detect abnormal market movements can act quickly to capitalize on the information to capture alpha with winning trades.


Identify Whale Price Manipulation

Using the same quantitative models that many high frequency hedge funds use in the equities markets, CoinFi can easily detect market manipulation and abnormal price action caused by whales.

Detect Coins That Are About To Moon

CoinFi's algorithms take inputs such as price, volume, volatility and run them through battle tested Wall Street derived black box quantitative and statistical models that give early warning for impending abnormal price movements.

Learn More

Real Time Informational Advantage

Right now trying to find urgent trading news, alerts and abnormal price movements is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Information is distributed on multiple channels such as Slack, Telegram, Twitter, Reddit, etc.

There is no quick or easy way to answer daily recurring questions from traders such as:
  • What are the coins in the last 24 hours that have abnormal price and volume?
  • What is the historical market moving news for this coin so I can get up to speed?
  • Where are the high quality research thought pieces on this particular coin?

The CoinFi database will enable users to monitor and analyze real-time crypto market news in ways that are currently impossible with existing tools. Crowdsourcing and machine learning algorithms surface the highest quality and most relevant financial analysis.

Trading Algorithms

Trading Algorithms Built With Wall Street Technology

CoinFi algorithms designed by Wall Street professionals use statistical arbitrage modeling to guarantee that traders always get "best execution" price.

"Best execution" price includes buying on the cheapest exchange and/or currency pair in addition to protective measures against other traders from placing orders ahead of you.

CoinFi internal modeling shows an average savings of 0.5% per trade - for traders that place an average of 1 trade per day, that adds up to an additional ROI of 182% a year.


Cloak Your Trading And Minimize Frontrunning

CoinFi is porting the same trading algorithms hedge fund managers use such as VWAP, Sniper, Iceberg, Implementation Shortfall, and Inline to cloak and enhance your trading behavior to give you order execution advantages.

Coming Soon

Consistently Identify The Best Priced Exchange

Quickly and effortlessly determine which exchange can give you the "best execution" price taking into account currency pair pricing, volatility, and liquidity to squeeze out additional profits that would otherwise get left on the table.

Decentralizing Wall Street

Right now only the elites paying hundreds of thousands a year have access to Goldman Sach’s stock research reports and proprietary trading models and secret algorithms. With Wall Street rapidly moving into the cryptocurrency space, it’s more imperative than ever that a decentralized platform exists which shares news, signals, financial models, trading signals and algorithms with the entire community.

The CoinFi token economy is a sustainable ecosystem that incentives researchers, analysts, curators, and coders to contribute. It is designed to intelligently rewards users on the quality of their contributions.

Scientific evidence consistently proves that a crowd of intelligent investors offer more insights and make better predictions. The CoinFi token empowers these crowds. Join us and we can make better predictions than the Goldman Sachs analyst making $1 million USD a year.

Decentralization of Wall Street

Incentivize Exposure of Bad Actors

Investigative members of the community can earn both financial and social rewards on CoinFi for performing due diligence into "shitcoins" and exposing bad actors within the crypto ecosystem.

Deep and Wide Altcoin Coverage

CoinFi has the incentive structure to encourage more research and publications on up-and-coming altcoins which may not receive mainstream coverage due to the lack of market size.

Diversified Opinions

As an independent platform, CoinFi supports a wider diversity of opinion; currently many financial journalists are incentivised to publish only positive research which disservices the industry.

Inclusivity and the Wisdom of the Crowds

With a strong community, CoinFi can leverage the crowds and rally technologists to collaborate and build better trading technology than Wall Street, enabling access for everyone.

Token

Understanding the CoinFi Token


The CoinFi token (COFI) will be a ERC-20 compatible token built on top of the Ethereum blockchain, defined by an open source smart contract, and used for transactions on the CoinFi platform.




Lock and Stake To Obtain Premium Functionality

Users will have to lock and stake the CoinFi token in order to obtain access to advanced functionality on the CoinFi platform such as customizable news feeds, dashboards, alerts and premium trading signals and algorithms.

Staking encourages long term holding of the token, thus reducing speculation and price volatility.

Compensation For Community Content Contributions

Crowdsourced content providers receive COFI based on the quality of their contributed material determined by metrics measuring the popularity of a piece of content. Further details are available on the white paper.

Compensation for the seeding of content from early adopters will come from the CoinFi Foundation which will retain 20% of the tokens at genesis for distribution to community contributors.

Act as Unit of Value in Auctions of Exclusive Content

Highly exclusive content whose value decays once accessed will require an auction mechanism to restrict distribution and determine the market price for that content.

These auctions will only accept COFI as the unit of bidding to ensure that CoinFi community members have privileged access to this type of valuable content.

Long Term Value Accretion In The Token Ecosystem

The cost to crowdsource the content is lower than the accumulated price users are willing to pay for the content as measured in COFI. As a result, the buy-side demand for COFI (users who require COFI to access the content) will exceed the sell-side demand for COFI (content contributors who receive COFI in exchange for premium content), thus creating long term demand for the CoinFi token.




Token Distribution

The distribution of CoinFi tokens will be as follows:

  • 16.7% is raised in a presale to early investors.
  • 33.3% is raised in a public token sale with the funds raised allocated to the company for the development of the product.
  • 30% retained by company shareholders.
  • 20% retained by the CoinFi Foundation to incentivize partners and early adopters of the product.



Use Of Funds

The following is a projected use of the funds raised:

  • 40% for the continued development of the platform.
  • 20% for general staffing.
  • 20% for sales and marketing costs.
  • 10% for legal and compliance costs.
  • 10% for operational expenses.
