Bitfinex launches Bitfinex Pulse platform

Digital asset trading platform Bitfinex has launched Bitfinex Pulse, a platform to enable users to exchange ideas, interact with each other and feel the pulse of the exchange’s growing community.

Knowledge is power and the exchange of ideas and information has always been an integral part of trading, from the days of the coloured jacketed trading pits to the emergence of bitcoin and digital asset markets where trading takes place 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Bitfinex Pulse is a social network tailored to meet the needs of crypto traders, providing Bitfinex’s growing customer base with the opportunity to leverage the exchange’s community to get a trading edge. The launch of Bitfinex Pulse will cement the exchange’s place as the go-to place to trade, with a robust and reliable trading platform offering the most depth of liquidity for bitcoin and Ethereum.

“As our community of traders continues to grow, Bitfinex Pulse will become a valuable information source, while also being a fun and intuitive way for traders to interact with each other,” said Paolo Ardoino, CTO at Bitfinex. “We have launched Bitfinex Pulse in response to the demand of our users for a professional content distribution platform for traders. Building on the success of the public leaderboard – which has already created crypto icons on Twitter – Bitfinex Pulse will foster the friendship and community spirit that makes Bitfinex a unique place to trade.”

Bitfinex Pulse will let verified customers interact with each other while also letting a user decide whether his or her pulses are posted publicly. Both verified and unverified Bitfinex customers will be able to publish private pulses. After a nickname has been chosen – which can be a new one or one the user has on the Bitfinex Leaderboard – a user can write, share and like pulses from other users. In addition, public pulses can be shared online, including on Twitter and Facebook, and be liked by other community members logged on to the Bitfinex Pulse platform. 

To sign up with Bitfinex Pulse, a user can choose his or her nickname or use the one already connected to their Bitfinex account on the platform’s Leaderboard. Alternatively, he or she can skip the Bitfinex Pulse account setup and view the pulses posted by other users.

Bitfinex is leveraging its position as a one-stop-shop for crypto trading, offering a variety of services, including margin trading with up to 5x leverage. The exchange also offers users access to a perpetual swap contract offering 100x leverage through its affiliate, iFinex Financial Technologies Limited.
