Business model

Describe the problem you are solving
The cryptocoin projects, even if they aim to serve the same target group cannot be compared easily by the current tools. This causes an inefficient and insufficient performance benchmarking & portfolio analysis which prevents proper evaluation of coins and leads to sub-optimal investment decisions.
In short, crypto investors currently lack a consolidated tool that brings together key content (pricing, news, taxonomy) with sufficient functionality to monitor, analyse and manage their holdings.
How are your customers solving that problem today?
Investors need to find & read/analyse individual crypto whitepapers from Crypto sites, news from News sources and financial data from Crypto Exchanges or data providers. After doing their research, they need to interpret & classify their findings which can take weeks if not months of effort if they look to repeat the process for hundreds of Crypto assets. This process is very cumbersome and in most cases the decisions are made based on incomplete and incomprehensive research at the moment.
Target custormers - Define customers, who are they
How do you plan to acquire customers?
We will have 3 type of customers:
1. (Freemium) End users : Through digital Marketing
2. (Integration Model) Crypto Exchanges : Direct Sales
3. (API) Market Data Providers: Direct Sales

Additionally, we carry out monthly community building activities and talk almost at every Blockchain-related event in Turkey. We have contacts at market data providers such as Thomson Reuters, however, in order to increase exposure internationally, support from an investor's network would be beneficial.
What is your revenue model or expected revenue model?
- We look to setup a Subscription and a Freemium Model for End users as well as (Crypto Fund) investment firms. (Exp Income $20 - $40 per user per month)
- We will provide our tools to Crypto Exchanges which will bring in Monthly Integration Fee. (Exp Income $1000 - $5000 per license/month)
- API Service for Insititutional-Grade Market Data Feed will be provided to Financial Data & Analytics Providers (who will also act as Channel Re-sellers) (Exp Income $2000 - 5000 per license/month)

What steps have you taken to validate the market?
We are small investors of the crypto assets. We used many of the currently available tools and services including 10+ exchanges, financial analysis tools (such as tradeview), read 130+ whitepapers and noticed that investors currently lack tools to evaluate Crypto Market Data from different perspectives. We validated our results with many crypto investors at the events we participated including Crypto Valley Conference in Switzerland, Blockchain Hackathon in Spain, Blockchain Turkey Summit, etc.
