CryptoCanary is a crowdsourced reviews platform covering the entire cryptocurrency space (think Yelp for crypto). We created this platform because we noticed that many newbies in our communities were falling for crypto scams and couldn't easily find the information they needed to avoid it. So far since launching our MVP in late Dec. 2018, we've grown to >200 registered users and >300 user submitted reviews. The only marketing we've done is some limited traction channel testing.
This project is led by Kevin Ting and Michael Fabing. Kevin is the founder of Bitcoin For Beginners, a 100,000+ member cryptocurrency community, and Michael is an experienced entrepreneur and former CTO of DILOO (bought by Rappi). We connected via Angel List in February 2019 and have been building together ever since.
Currently we are focused on improving our metrics and growing our retail audience. But our business model will consist of premium account subscriptions and in-platform ads. These will be targeted towards companies looking to reach and interact with retail crypto consumers. Our market is the collective marketing/advertising budget of all crypto/blockchain companies.
