Visionary Financial (VF), one of the fastest growing crypto media outlets, has integrated a social media platform and launched an IOS mobile application.
Visionary Financial currently caters to 15,000+ crypto and blockchain enthusiasts daily through social media channels like Twitter.
The company’s ultimate goal is to create the most effective spot in crypto to catch industry developments, and to leverage a social platform connecting like-minded individuals.
Jeff Guzzi ( Founder of VF ) stated that “we have grown substantially over the last year and wanted to differentiate ourselves and create a powerful user experience. We continue to think of innovative ways to grow aside from just content.”
“We are offering a differentiated experience that allows investors and traders to come together. This ultimately gives users the opportunity to read and talk crypto whether they’re on desktop or IOS.
“VF believes the crypto media space is still very fragmented and wants to build a ‘one-stop’ social experience. Millennials enjoy socializing with each other, especially in an industry like crypto which is still so young.”
The founders of VF come from traditional finance and have found a lot of value in social platforms like StockTwits that give investors/traders the ability to share thoughts and ideas daily.
VF Desktop & IOS New Features
VF has integrated a community page where investors/traders can communicate on a daily basis. This will ultimately be a great place to hang out after catching up on industry developments.
The new interface offers 10 different crypto boards and has enabled support for Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, EOS, Chainlink, Monero, Litecoin, Dash, Link, and Tron.
As user growth grows between desktop and IOS, VF will be adding support for many other cryptocurrencies.
The social experience is personalized and allows each user to set up their own profile. Each profile can be identified by “crypto badges” to show the community which cryptocurrencies you have the most interest in.
As you can see from the video below, users have the ability to connect on crypto boards, or even connect through personal messaging.
Apple IOS Integration
As mentioned previously, VF has worked extensively to incorporate an IOS app that is compatible with the desktop interface.
The IOS app will essentially give users the same features offered on desktop view.
Head of VF Marketing Jordan Daniels stated “our ultimate goal with the IOS integration is to keep users connected. Right now most of the crypto boards that exist are only compatible on desktop view.”
“We wanted to differentiate ourselves in this capacity and truly launch the most transparent media platform in cryptocurrency. Today everybody is primarily using their phone for social media measures. We truly believe the VF IOS integration will help users stay connected all day long.”
VF plans to continue building out the content and social side of the business as user growth increases.
In the longer-term, VF plans to integrate an investment arm that they will introduce and explain at a later date.
VF believes an investment arm could be the final piece needed to become a leader in the media space.
The team at Visionary Financial primarily comes from financial firms such as Merrill Lynch and Credit Suisse.
Founder Jeff Guzzi noted: “The investment side of things is something we’re very passionate about building out.”
“Many would argue the millennial generation has interest in purchasing crypto, but don’t fully understand how to diversity outside of their traditional mutual funds and ETFs.”
VF is also entertaining the idea of launching a utility token that would be utilized to give back to platform users.
Historically speaking, social platforms have not done a good job of giving back to contributing users.
Many social media platforms have utilized user data to benefit their corporate agenda and not the user specifically.
Founder Jeff Guzzi explained that “we are not interested in the ICO route due to the lack of regulatory transparency, but we are interested in the IEO (initial exchange offering) route.”
VF is also entertaining the ability to partner with an existing utility token to speed up the integration process.
