Choose your Token!

Today we reveal the 12 tokens to choose from in our new token voting process.

Earlier this month we announced the return of the Ethfinex token vote, with a new process that increases fairness and transparency, and we believe will result in the best quality tokens being available to trade on our platform. (You can read about why we changed it here)  

For the first time we have integrated the curated registry process to bring equal opportunity in the chance to be listed, and to distribute quality control through the people who know this market the best – the traders. Every month, anyone across the Ethereum ecosystem can add tokens to the registry, apply for an Ethfinex Badge (signifying they meet set criteria) and, if successful, are included within the token pool.

As we anticipate this pool to grow larger and larger over time, each month we will select 12 tokens through a random draw mechanism, to enter the official Ethfinex voting round. This removes a pain point from the last process of having too many tokens to make a meaningful, informed choice.

This period saw 34 tokens submitted, 11 challenged, and 14 tokens successfully completing the process unchallenged to gain a Community Approved badge.

Out of these 14 tokens, 2 were subsequently removed: 0x (already listed on the exchange) and IoTeX. As a final stage of due-diligence, our team double-checks that each eligible token meets a) the criteria and b) will remain tradable for a significant amount of time post listing (over at least 2 months). On this occasion, we identified a token that is scheduled to migrate over to main-net in less than one month making it non-ERC20 and currently unsuitable for Ethfinex. Removing this leaves us with 12 community-curated tokens for this round’s vote, and therefore no need for a random draw. The tombola machine will have to wait a month for its debut!
