What is CoinFi?
Anyone who has been an active trader in crypto will agree that the noise-to-signal ratio for crypto is extremely high. Crypto is an immature field where information is often either overwhelming or lacking altogether. The explosion of ICOs in 2017 has made the crypto field even more unmanageable with many new tokens being launched on exchanges every single day.
CoinFi is a market intelligence platform for crypto traders that addresses this exact problem. The CoinFi platform offers crowdsourced and professionally curated research, analysis, trading signals, trading algorithms, and market-moving news.
