The Wisconsin-based, self-funded company, started by childhood friends William Kehl and Rob Borden, began as a solution to a personal need for cryptocurrency trading tools. When William and Rob could not find an existing product that met their trading needs, they decided to create their own. And now, with over 60 technical indicators, 12 exchanges and 1300 plus markets, Coinigy continues to evolve.
A year into its development, Coinigy currently provides order management, analytical charting, balance tracking, price alerts, news feeds and email notifications for trade, balance and price alerts. And this is just the beginning. The team is working hard on some new and exciting features for the platform, including enterprise level support, social features, tipping, video tutorials and both iOS and Android applications.
It is important to note that Coinigy is exchange-neutral and acts as a platform to provide easy access to multiple exchange accounts. This means that your cyptocurrency is kept in the individual wallets at the individual exchanges, and not in Coinigy’s wallet. Currently, Coinigy connects to 12 exchanges including Cryptsy, BTC-e, Bitstamp, OkCoin, Bter, Bitfinex, BTC China, Kraken, Polonex, Bittrex, C-Cex and HitBTC, with more to come. There are even plans of adding 2.0 tokens built on top of such platforms as Counterparty and SWARM.
If you’ve been eager to try out the site, but noticed that Coinigy’s private beta registration has ended, and you’re only able to join the waiting list, then you’re in luck. A few months back the team closed beta registration to work on development and focus on its public release. However, William and Rob were kind enough to provide us with a beta key for any CCN reader who is interested in signing up and skipping the waiting list. Thanks, guys!
Here’s what you need to get started…
CCN beta key: CCN125A
Simply click the above link and add the key into the “Beta Code” box when you set up your account.
But if that wasn’t enough, beginning on December 1, 2014, Coinigy will be offering a pre-sale to early adopters who want to back the project and benefit from doing so. Their goal is set at 50 BTC, with backers also getting the opportunity to purchase Annual and Lifetime subscriptions to the service at a 45% discount (plus an additional 10% discount if you pay with bitcoin). The pre-sale will run until February 1, 2015 and will accept both USD and BTC.
Users can look for the public launch of Coinigy in early 2015.
