Our mission is to accelerate the advancement of blockchain technology, by finding the best emerging blockchain projects and helping them succeed. CoinList has become the global leader in new token issuance, helping blue chip projects like Solana, Filecoin, Celo, Dapper Labs, and others raise over $1 billion and connect them with hundreds of thousands of new token holders. And we now support the full lifecycle of crypto investment, from token sales through token distribution, trading, and crypto-specific services such as staking and access to decentralized-finance opportunities. CoinList users trade and store Bitcoin, Ether, and many other popular crypto assets through CoinList.co, CoinList Pro (our full-service exchange), and mobile apps, while also getting exclusive access to the best new tokens before they list on other exchanges.

Our Protocol Services team is dedicated to advancing the crypto ecosystem by supporting builders through their launch journey. We help the builder at every stage of their journey, from start, to launch and grow.

Role Overview

In this role, you will lead the technical due diligence process for prospective crypto projects seeking to launch their tokens on CoinList. The diligence process includes:

  1. Conducting Diligence Calls: Engage with project founders to gain an in-depth understanding of the technical aspects of their protocols.
  2. Analyzing Technical Documentation: Thoroughly review and assess technical documentation provided by the protocols, such as whitepapers, GitHub repositories, and other relevant materials.
  3. Reporting: Compile detailed reports on the protocols' underlying architecture and technical viability for the Protocol Services team, based on the gathered and analyzed information.

Your work will be crucial in ensuring the technical soundness and potential success of projects on the CoinList platform.

What Will You Do:

  • Engage with founders and CTOs of crypto projects in CoinList’s Token Launch pipeline to evaluate the technical aspects of the project.
  • Write research reports for the Protocol Services team that cover a project’s technical architecture, analysis of comparable/competitive projects, and other related intangibles (e.g. founder / CTO quality, valuation analysis, etc.).
  • Conduct research and analysis on different crypto verticals (e.g. novel L1s, DePin, DeFi, etc.).
