What is your background briefly?
I graduated in 2008 with an Economics major from University of Bristol. Worked for ICAP – largest interdealer broker in the world, on FX/fixed income/Derivatives desks. Then managed a proprietary trading desk at several banks in Russia, then set up an investment brokerage in Moscow, from scratch, which I am now selling, in order to focus fully on the Terminal.
Does it seem like a logical background to what you do now?
Absolutely. Crypto is a new growing asset class. Terminal derives many of its ideas and functionality from the traditional finance world, of which I was a part for over 9 years. We believe in 5 years most people will use one of top 3 popular crypto trading-analysis platforms (that don’t exist yet).
1 min pitch for what you are doing now?
We are dedicated to delivering Terminal.Global: an informational-analytical-trading platform for cryptocurrencies, with the initial public launch set for 16-17 April 2018 at World Blockchain Forum Dubai
Terminal is a web-based platform, allowing to trade on over 30+ exchanges worldwide, thus providing access to 1000+ trading pairs, from a single, user-friendly and intuitive interface. Terminal is built to do 3 things well: provide in-depth analysis of the blockchain, data from exchanges, and crypto-related internet traffic (in partnership with Similarweb). We use all of that to provide things like news, ICO sections, mining sections, arbitrage matrices, market snapshot screens, and most of things any user would require in the crypto space. Terminal has been in development only for the last 4.5 months, so there is a lot of work ahead, however in the initial release we plan to show what has been done in this short period of time.
Terminal’s functionality allows to trade, research, analyze, track crypto-markets from top to bottom. We strongly believe the crypto markets will grow in size, and more people around the world will get involved, so we are building a multi-language all-in-one global tool to satisfy the needs of crypto-involved ever-growing audience.
Why do you think it is such a powerful idea?
I’m a trader myself. Right now, I use over 20 different resources around the internet in my crypto trading decisions. There is a lot of noise out there. There needs to be an aggregator/filter of data, in one structured/easy-to-use solution. And we feel the ideas and pipeline in the Terminal development will fill that void.
How can people find out more about it and you and your work?
Currently, the website is just a landing page with signup for those interested in the release.
Full website of terminal.global will be launched next week, with the most up-to-date information and links to our social media pages for anyone to browse. we can be contacted directly through the email provided on the website.
