SaaS (Software as a Service)

For every experienced investor, it is important to have efficient tools and accurate data in order to make better decisions. CoinDash’s SaaS layer includes an array of independent and self-contained tools, custom designed for managing and interacting with crypto assets.

There are number of reasons why crypro assets are attractive investment opportunity, such as:

–       Portfolio management; as soon as you add a new crypto account, it is automatically to your portfolio’s performance, risk and diversification analytics;

–       ICO Automation; additional option for investment in ICOs by setting your own conditions when to invest ICO with IF-THEN commands.

–       Trade Automation; same as for ICO, option to trade with IF-THEN automation.

Network (Social)

Every new potential investor in crypto assets will find it difficult to get around the complexity of blockchain technology, in which assets to invest, when to buy, when to sell and in which ICOs should invest. Due to these difficulties, many new investors may decide not to enter into crypto investment.

On the other side, there are crypto investors who became leaders in discovering and assessing new investment opportunities. CoinDash trading platform enables its more experienced investors to profit, via social trading tools, from their knowledge and expertise by sharing their trading positions with other users. In that way they can earn fee and obtain more influence by having more followers on the network.

CoinDash’s social trading tools are Signal Trading and Copy Trading.

Signal Trading

According to CoinDash’s white paper, Signal trading is a social trading feature which enables users to receive real-time trading signals from top investors. The signals are specific and detail the amount traded, assets, and the exchange or blockchain. Users can then choose to act on the signal or not. The signals are generated automatically by the portfolio management core which is aware of all the trades followed by the user, guaranteeing validity and transparency. Signal trading is a good way to get acquainted with market dynamics and learn what the top investors are doing.

Here is an example:

Golem ICO

If you want to receive real-time trading signals from top investors, you will need to pay a fee. You can subscribe on monthly basis.

Copy Trading

Copy Trading tool enables users to reserve a portion of their crypto assets to copy-trade top investors. It is based on the signal trading feature. Copy trading feature is decentralized and managed by a special system of smart contracts enabling users with complete control of their funds.

Here are some examples of how it works.

In an ICO copy trade, a user follows a top trader who invests in any blockchain that supports token creation, such as ethereum based ICO. The platform detects the ICO investment and instantly generates a copy trade request. Smart contract validates the request and user enters the ICO.

Another example of Copy Trading is when the copied user buys Golem (GNT) tokens with ether. The user’s copy trade smart contract receives a request to send the cheapest exchange account the user holds, a predetermined amount of cryptocurrency. When the request is confirmed by the smart contract, the funds are being sent to the exchange. Through API, the platform sends a trade request to the exchange. When the trade is executed, the platform sends the purchased GNT tokens to the smart contracts. This is called an Exchange copy trade.

Marketplace

Using data created by the SaaS and network layers maximizes the ease of discovery of investment opportunities and enables users to make trades directly on the platform.

Trading signals – It enables users to follow top investors and receive real time trading signals directly from them, use the signal and track its performance smoothly.

ICO Dashboard – The platform features a leading research and content on the ICOs, which are getting harder and harder to keep track, in order to give precise and trustworthy information in a graphical ICO dashboard. Dashoboard keeps the track of past, present and future ICOs and enables its users to invest using CoinDash platform.

Trending assets – CoinDash offers a clear and accurate overview of the market and the different assets needed to make better decisions and investment opportunities.

3rd party integration – There is a dedicated SDK for developers that enable integration of 3rd party investment instruments that are available to users for investment directly from the CoinDash. For instance, Melonport is a project that develops the infrastructure for decentralized funds. Integration of Melonport with CoinDash will enable platform’s user’s access to new investments and track of their performance.

Storing CoinDash

It is recommended to keep your crypto assets in a hardware wallet. You can store your CDT on any wallet that support ERC20 tokens, such as MyEther Wallet, Ledger Wallet, Trezor, Ethereum Mist Dapp, MetaMask.

Hardware wallets are plugged into your computer like a USB stick, and they have one job only: to be a firewall between your CoinDash and the outside world. To do this, they encrypt the private keys to your cryptocurrency wallets so that no one, not even you, can know them. That way only someone with physical access to your hardware wallet and who also knows its password has a chance to access and move your coins.

Final Thoughts

CoinDash’s ICO, in July 2017, was abruptly halted when it was revealed the sale had been compromised shortly after it began. In total, the ICO was able to raise $7.53 million before the ethereum address it was using to solicit funds was altered to a fake one by an unidentified hacker, resulting in the ether going to another source.

The company was quick and released a statement: “Contributors that sent ETH to the fraudulent Ethereum address, which was maliciously placed on our website, and sent ETH to the CoinDash.io official address will receive their CDT tokens accordingly.”

Despite of the initial setback, the company managed to move forward and provide its users with adequate tools to manage and maximize their portfolios.

Team behind CoinDash believes that blockchain technology has a huge potential and by providing high performance investment tools will encourage more people to enter blockchain markets.
