Since those who invest in cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin are also effectively its owners, it is extremely important to keep dynamic lines of communication open between traders, investors and enthusiasts alike. This press release introduces the interactive social component of Coin Pursuit, called SliceFeed™ which will innovate the way digital currency investors share information and ultimately drive market participation and industry growth.

At the end of the day, the Cryptocurrency Chains get their power from the community. Therefore a social engine was designed to harness and deliver that power more effectively.

Cryptocurrency resource website Coin Pursuit has been building a reputation for its comprehensive presentation of information important to digital currency traders. When it came to adding social interaction capability to the website, CEO Spencer Forrest knew he did not want to integrate a message forum. “There are several already,” he said. “We wanted to shake things up by creating a unique platform that drives the market and offers more to the cryptocurrency community. At the end of the day, the cryptocurrency chains get their power from the community. Therefore a social engine was designed to harness and deliver that power more effectively. We think it’s an industry game-changer—we just need community participation to validate our theory.”

Thus Coin Pursuit's interactive social component, SliceFeed, was born. The website, which closely reflects the cryptocurrency market, incorporates a chain-like feature, a confirmation system to qualify rumors, and a cap algorithm that controls network growth and rewards users with more visibility based on their participation. In the terminology specific to the website, a “Slice” is a piece of member-contributed content which is then distributed to the member’s SliceFeed. These Slices will be displayed in a real-time feed to other members, who can track—and contribute to—the digital currency-focused posts their fellow members have made. This controlled method of quality content distribution will allow Slice contributors to share ideas and experiences, start conversations, provide trading tips, post links to third-party content and videos, and confirm or debunk rumors. As a reward for their insights, members can compensate one another with Bitcoin donations and gain access to premium content.

Finally, in the next version release of SliceFeed, an affiliate program is planned that will offer partners an opportunity to participate in revenue sharing in the network. When partners add the SliceFeed API to their websites, they will provide a valuable service to their users by delivering fresh, real-time content and will earn Bitcoin rewards for recruiting new members to SliceFeed.

Forrest noted that SliceFeed will fit in nicely with Coin Pursuit's overall philosophy of educating and helping cryptocurrency traders, investors and enthusiasts. “We're all in this together, and many new folks are feeling around for the light switch,” he said, “but together, with the appropriate tools and community support, we can help this cutting edge industry continue to flourish.”

SliceFeed, which will be launched on the Coin Pursuit website, will begin a beta-testing phase March 7th and should last no longer than a week. Those interested should contact Coin Pursuit via email for specific at beta(at)coinpursuit(dot)com or you can visit Coin Pursuit at Exhibitor Booth 19 at the Texas Bitcoin Conference, where a SliceFeed demonstration will be presented.
