Coinbase and FTX to Invest in Coinfeeds

FTX and Coinbase, two major cryptocurrency exchanges, announced on Thursday that they have invested through their respective venture arms into Coinfeeds, a  startup  known as the ‘Bloomberg for cryptos’.

According to the press release, the investment was possible through a $2 million seed  funding round  set by Coinfeeds, a firm dedicated to monitoring social media mentions and activity in the crypto sphere.

Coinfeeds was founded by former Uber data scientist, Moyi Dang and Uber, Robinhood and Microsoft veteran, Bhavya Agarwal.

Using natural language processing, the company generates insights about community activity and sentiment based on social channels most frequently visited by web3 communities, such as Twitter.

“Coinfeeds was developed around the idea that web3 communities are social first. Pretty much all important information is shared through some sort of social platform, which is openly accessible. The way the crypto community shares and engages with information provides auto-curation. By taking advantage of this data, we can not only filter out spam, but we can also pick up on what is important in real-time. By organizing this information well, we lower the cost of doing research, and we lower information asymmetry in crypto, which is very high,” Moyi Dang, the CEO and Co-Founder of Coinfeeds, commented.

Additionally, the app provides insights on some of the top crypto investors and breakout projects based on social metrics, in addition to these metrics for NFT projects and tokens.
