Spiking currently works with a customer base of more than 180,000 traditional investors. It is now helping them access cryptocurrency markets through a solution that track trades of cryptocurrency “whales” or holders of substantial crypto assets.

Whales are essentially mining pools and or individuals that hold large holdings of cryptocurrency. Because of this, they are able to influence and manipulate the price of crypto tokens — sometimes arbitrarily. This is a perennial problem that the cryptocurrency industry has yet to find a solution for.

Spiking will let traders mirror the trading activity of any whale and control their own segregated trading accounts directly, using smart contracts on the blockchain. The platform will come built with “fully audited security standards”.

The company intends to hold a public token sale on November 22, 2018.

Prior to its private token sale, Spiking raised a US$1.63 million Pre- A round. Its other backers include Quest Ventures, CRC Capital, Mars Blockchain, J Capital, and Jove Capital.
