03 Sep SynQ Hits the East Coast Blockchain Circuit: Blockchain Without Borders and Coinvention Wrap-Up
SynQ, the next-gen communication platform designed specifically for crypto communities, made its presence felt at blockchain conferences in New York and Philadelphia this past week.
Represented by CryptoSyndicate COO Nick Mancini, SynQ attended Blockchain Without Borders Token Expo (August 30) and Coinvention (August 31) alongside blockchain startups, developers, and investors from around the world.
Both conferences offered a specialized focus on blockchain technology and investment. At Blockchain Without Borders Token Expo, the spotlight was on valuable startup companies in the blockchain industry. Co-hosted by Liaoyuan, a service platform that provides informational and financial support for early-stage startups, and Spark, a blockchain incubator that specializes in enterprise transformation, the conference agenda placed emphasis on the venture and startup links between the USA and China.
“The word of the day was ‘community’,” said Mancini. “Everyone from VCs to institutional investors is starting to realize that communities can make or break a project that’s going to market.”
CryptoSyndicate, the software and technology development company behind SynQ, is both startup and ongoing crypto discussion group. Founded in 2017 by CEO Enrique Gutierrez, its resident sentiment analyst, CryptoSyndicate is known in the crypto space for its insightful business intelligence and accurate price action predictions.
The transition from business intelligence to software development was a natural one. A seasoned entrepreneur and IT developer, Gutierrez began developing the SynQ communication platform during the crypto market bull run at the end of 2017.
Said Gutierrez, “When new traders flooded the market last year, our community membership exploded, but so did the hosting fee that Slack wanted to charge us. Communities are the backbone of crypto, but existing platforms can’t scale without pricing out 90% of groups.”
But CryptoSyndicate wasn’t satisfied with just messaging capabilities. What began as an internal solution quickly grew into something demanded by other crypto communities.
SynQ combines feature-rich messaging with community infrastructure that lets moderators select from public, private, read-only, and premium channels. SynQ also brings the crypto market directly to the community with TraQ, a command-line crypto price tracker that provides automatic market updates in-app.
As Mancini shared with other convention-goers at Coinvention, SynQ oversaw a successful alpha launch in August. Currently available as mobile and web apps, SynQ is transitioning select crypto communities to the platform as part of its upcoming beta release.
“With SynQ Alpha, we addressed the communication and infrastructure problems that have prevented crypto communities from growing,” said Mancini. “With SynQ Beta, we’re introducing new features that go a step further and connect communities with each other.”
SynQ is currently accepting inquiries at its website from crypto communities who are interested in joining the platform as part of beta release.
CryptoSyndicate and SynQ will next appear at Founder World 2018 in San Francisco on September 7-9.
