Why Token Labs?

The Tie is the leading provider of crypto data to institutions. Nearly one hundred of the largest hedge funds in crypto trust our sentiment, news, market, and on-chain data to help them make more informed investment decisions.

Identifying the Optimal Publication for a Partnership Announcement

Where is the best place to make my upcoming partnership announcement, optimizing for price impact?


  • Use NLP to tag announcement types.
  • Measure change in price, volume, etc. post announcement.
  • Over long-term averaging, quantify the most impactful source.

  • Medium and Cointelegraph are the most popular places to make partnership announcements - and they have good returns. Coindesk is less popular but has very positive returns on average.
  • Many publications have no influence (or negative), so they are not worth your time or money.
