Cobinhood Review vs Halo – “Who died first?”

Cobinhood Review of Collapse
Cobinhood Review “Out of Business”

We did a review of these two platforms in 2018. A few years later we review the interesting nostalgia of exchanges gone bye bye. Very interesting stories of both Halo Review and Cobinhood Review and how they both failed. Neither of these exchanges exist anymore, examine the signs below of why they both collapsed.

Halo Review and Collapse
Halo Review “Out of Business”

Two new exchanges: COBINHOOD and HALOPLATFORM.

The landscape of exchanges for crypto enthusiasts is a sad one. Security breaches (e.g., non-existing support (Bitfinex, Bittrex, et al.), ugly interfaces, nerdy interfaces, premium fees to pay. Those exchanges give the impression that they only wish to milk the cow.

They literally do not offer a state-of-the-art experience when it comes to their platforms (look at COSS and have a healthy belly laugh). But who is it that listens to the complaints and desires of the crypto community? We think we have found in our belief a few contenders set to dominate this space, each with an intrinsically different ecosystem, one vs the other: HALOPLATFORM and COBINHOOD to name two of them.

Halo as with our cobinhood review both are currently running ICOs and have something to offer for sure, but which one to invest in? With your participation in one of these ICOs, you give a vote of confidence as you invest in their technological vision, thus you are contributing to the very future of the Cryptosphere.

One of them seems to plow a huge amount of their budget into what seems is marketing, towards which should have its caps filled quickly, the other one seems to invest into its platform succinctly to deliver a really strong, feature-rich product and prays for word-of-mouth.

Who is who? In comparison you will learn this by the end of this article.  Let's us take a deep breath and narrow it down as we look at them both. First things first, here are the opponents:


Welcome to the Ultimate Cryptocurrency Platform…
Halo Platform is the Most Comprehensive Cryptocurrency Platform Supported by Halo Coin and the Halo Network.

Powerful, enterprise level solutions fused with next generation trading tools and widgets make Halo Platform the #1 choice for a fully customizable trading hub with the flexibility to handle all your day-to-day trading and more.

Our customizable UI allows you to change out which widgets you want to make it exactly what you need. Traders need a solid exchange where trading lag is a thing of the past. Track your positions, get SMS alerts, check annualized ROI from holding, track off-chain assets in your balance, and view your portfolio position in BTC and other base currencies like USD or AUD. Halo has it all and grows with the needs of the market.

HALOPLATFORM is so much more than a simple exchange – it is a whole cryptocurrency ecosystem and leaves no room for wishes. HALO will become the command center of every professional cryptocurrency trader / investor. Cryptos are still in it's infancy, this is why so many companies with poorly designed products can succeed.

HALO with it's breathtaking offering has the goal to drive the cryptoverse to a whole new level, especially its analysis tools will help novice traders and investors alike to get their stuff organized in order and to keep an comprehensive detailed overview. There are many fields to be disrupted by HALO and the exchange seemingly is just one of them.

Supported coins / tokens: To many to list here, to be determined they are aiming for 100-150 of the top market coins plus whatever the community requests
Supported fiat currencies: USD/EUR/JPY/KRW/CNY/HKD/CAD/GBP/AUD/NTD/RMB/AUS
Whitepaper: UPDATED 10/24/17

Introducing Cobinhood

COBINHOOD is a cryptocurrency service platform for the blockchain era. The first
service launched by COBINHOOD is the world’s first zero fee high-frequency
cryptocurrency trading exchange that solves existing problems of cryptocurrency
traders. It provides spot trading and margin trading with ZERO trading fees to
maximize traders’ profit and market liquidity.

COBINHOOD is a ZERO trading fee cryptocurrency exchange with much buzz currently. The zero trading fee applies to spot trading and margin trading for up to 10x leverage.

You can deposit in many fiat currencies, along with this it seems they took great care on the security end of their system, with an eye on being innovative. They aim for becoming a decentralized exchange in Q2 2018.

Unfortunately COBINHOOD landed in trouble a few days after the ICO has started, as there has been special 150% bonus deals for Ian Balinas telegram group. Despite that the ICO seems to go pretty well, their marketing is excessive and seems to work.

Supported coins / tokens: BTC, BCC, ETH, USDT, ETC, IOTA, EOS, LTC, ZEC, XMR, XRP, COB, REP, OMG, DASH, NEO, GNT
Supported fiat currencies: USD/EUR/JPY/KRW/CNY/HKD/CAD/GBP/AUD/NTD


The feature list is long, very innovative and contains tons of tools you want to have right now. In fact the exchange is just a fraction of what HALO has to offer and if you take your time to look into the array of features, you surely will be surprised. As we compare HALO Platform here with the cobinhood review, our emphasis is more on the exchange along with the connected items in turn, but here are a few of the awesome features of HALO:

  • A brand new approach of an EXCHANGE: Halo is all about organizing the decentralized. You can control your Private Keys inside Halo, so you never will lose track of all that cluttered stuff, spread over the web. It has a strong cloud architecture that takes care to avoid trading lags and scaling issues. Furthermore, HALO's Decentralized Control Exchange (DCE) allows you to add and trade on only the exchanges of your choice, this allows tracking effortlessly across multiple exchanges. The HALO tokens you are purchasing with the ICO are heavily used on the entire platform and also use a Zero-Transaction-Fee Protocol within the platform, so if you send 1 Halo, it will be 1 Halo received.
  • A complete PORTFOLIO MANAGER, that visualizes the current state P/L of your wallets (which you can have as well on HALO, of course). Users can track gains
    and get notified instantly by SMS alerts. ROI can be calculated on monthly and yearly base, track off-chain assets, and view their portfolio position in BTC and other base currencies as well. Furthermore, HALO utilizes CRYPTOSWIM – a Cryptocurrency Calculator. This feature will help you with keeping your eyeballs on your “Dollar Cost Average” and takes care for not being hype-influenced.
  • Wallets, Wallets, Wallets
    HALOPlatform aims to be your one-stop-solution for your wallets as well. If you hodl, for example, BTC, ETH, XRP and DASH you don't have to login into each of the wallets to check the status or do transactions, you have them all-in-one space. This is really helpful if you spread your portfolio widely over tons of coins and tokens – this way you can transfer the one you want to sell to the HALO Exchange with mouseclick and trade it if you wish to. This is another point in terms of mass-adoption, as the current state is hard to grasp for Average Joe.
  • Another important feature will be the Marketplace. Here you can offer all kind of Cryptoservice to the audience. Imagine consulting lessons, trading signals and whatever. Here is also a POS where you can use the HALOCOIN you can buy in the current ICO and here is the place where the project will gain its revenue.
  • The HALO Tokenhub will be an very simple but effectice place for decentralized and consensus regulated ICO creation. This will bring up the whole ICO thing to a new level, making this form of crowdfunding available for the masses.
  • HALOPlatform seems to be unstoppable in terms of their vision, there are way more features to discover like the business tools and services, an inbound crypto community, financial tracking tools and a HALO debit card. The roadmap is unbelievable and if this job is done properly they will blow so many other small scale projects out of equation.
