Registration

Registration on Coinfloor is broken up into three steps. Step one requires just an email address and password. Once you have completed step one, you must confirm your email via a link before proceeding to step two. Step two requires you to configure two-factor authentication, and step three requires you to go through Coinfloor’s verification system.

Verification

Coinfloor has a single verification level that is required to trade on the platform. Getting verified is a two-step process that requires a picture of your ID, your full name, your country of residence (including postal code). According to Coinfloor, the verification process should take about a minute for pre-verification in most cases.

Fees

Coinfloor’s trading fee system is broken up into three levels where each level is based on the amount you have traded over the past 30 days. On the low-end, the trading fee is 0.30% of your trading and applies for traders with less than $500,000 USD traded over 30 days. For mid-range, the fee is 0.20%, which applies for traders that have traded between $500,000 USD and $1,000,000 USD over the past 30 days. And on the high-end, for more than $1,000,000 USD traded, the fee applied is 0.10%.

Deposit and withdrawal wise, for cryptocurrencies, there is no deposit fee and there is a small withdrawal fee of 0.0050 of that currency, with a minimum deposit of 0.05 and a minimum withdrawal of 0.0005. Fiat wise, the fees are set per currency and can be seen on Coinfloor’s fee page. Minimum deposit and withdrawal for fiat are 5,000 and 2,000 respectively for every fiat currency that Coinfloor accepts.

Interface

Coinfloor’s trading interface leaves a bit to be desired, the entire site is built on a white and blue theme, with the occasional green accent. And unfortunately, there is no dark mode available, making late night trading sessions heavy on the eyes. The main trading interface has a market depth chart, but no other charts are offered. Below the chart on the left is an order book, with your personal orders filtered to the right. Directly to the right of the chart is an order submission form. And on top is a trading pair selection drop-down.

Security

While Coinfloor does enforce 2FA, there are unfortunately only two supported 2FA methods, and Google Authenticator isn’t one of them. The two choices you do have are Authy and YubiKey, with YubiKey being the star of the two, as it’s a hardware-based second factor. Otherwise, Coinfloor will email you on every login to your account.

On the corporate side, Coinfloor states that it maintains all of its client’s currency in multi-signature cold wallets. Also stated is that its entire system is regularly tested by penetration testers, though it does not state exactly who, aside from ‘a highly regarded penetration testing firm’.

ico event

In October, London will host the major conference, ICO Event London 2017, dedicated to a popular investment generation tool called Initial Coin Offering.
The event will involve blockchain and cryptocurrency experts, venture investors, lawyers and startup founders, raising a great startup capital due to the ICO.

ICO Event London 2017

ICO Event London 2017 is one of the first major events dedicated to the new investment method. Not coincidentally, London has been selected to host this event: it is a center of investments and financial hub with a plenty of young companies.

Analysts call the UK a highly active state on the cryptocurrency and ICO market. One has established here a regulatory environment for testing fintech projects, while the blockchain potential is officially recognized by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

However, legislation in this sector is still far cry from perfection, and startup founders, planning to launch the ICO, should consult lawyers. According to Smile-Expo, an organizer known by its Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference network, the event will be useful both in the context of ICO implementation and from a perspective of investors. The platform will allow to establish a dialogue between successful project teams and to conduct an analysis of mistakes. Experts will tell the audience about legal details and factors that should be taking into account while choosing where to invest.

Guests will be able not only to talk to speakers but also to attend the exhibition area, presenting services related with the ICO implementation, cryptocurrencies and blockchain. Exhibitors will include IT developers, cryptocurrency exchanges, investment platforms and payment systems.
