Wall Street veteran launches social network and marketplace with crypto-currency technology
CoinLinked, a social network and marketing platform founded by Wall Street veteran Jenny Q. Ta, was launched on May 7.
The platform will feature a utility token that rewards users for activity on the platform and can also be redeemed for discounts in the CoinLinked marketplace.
Speaking to Cointelegraph, Ta described CoinLinked as the „first blockchain-based social network and crypto-currency trading platform,“ comparing it to a hybrid decentralized/centralized merger of Twitter, Instagram and Amazon.
„With global e-commerce expanding steadily each year and sales projections indicating that the multi-billion dollar industry will reach new peaks by 2021, there is a clear need for a more fluid and less burdensome method of exchanging crypto currencies for tangible goods,“ he said.
