Cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex has launched a mobile version of Bitfinex Pulse, a social platform for traders.
The initial launch of Bitfinex Pulse was reported on by Coin Rivet in April, with its launch aiming to give traders a platform to share ideas, strategies and thoughts on the market.
The platform on mobile will enable any eligible verified Bitfinex user to share his or her thoughts on crypto via the mobile app, while also letting a user decide whether pulses are posted publicly. Both verified and unverified Bitfinex Pulse users will be able to publish private pulses on mobile.
Users can also follow each other as well as like, share and interact with others like most major social media platforms.

“Bitfinex Pulse has quickly become a valuable resource for our growing community of professional traders,” said Paolo Ardoino, CTO at Bitfinex. “The very nature of crypto markets makes information flow fast, and I’m sure our traders will appreciate being able to search for the latest Pulses on the go from the convenience of their mobile devices.”
Speaking to Coin Rivet in May, Ardoino said that the vision with Pulse is to replicate a type of Bloomberg terminal or Reuters model.
“In traditional finance you have experienced products like Bloomberg and Reuters that have integrated chat, integrated newsfeeds, they have many tools that are the backbone for the user experience.” He said.
To obtain access to Bitfinex Pulse in-app, a user can click on the Pulse icon at the top right-hand corner of the screen in the Bitfinex mobile app. To sign up, a user can choose his or her nickname or use the one already connected to their Bitfinex account on the platform’s Leaderboard.
