Bringing CeFi and DeFi together
We are really excited to announce that Foxify have passed our due diligence process and are confirmed to be doing their IDO with us this month.
Most of us use centralized and decentralized exchanges on a daily basis. But these exchanges have their trade offs.
Centralized exchanges have issues with security, decentralized exchanges have issues with usability.
What if there was a way to solve both issues at once?
Before we take a closer look at Foxify and why we feel they are set to be a game changer in their field, we wanted to give you an insight into how we select projects who IDO with us, it is not straight forward!
We believe in quality not quantity.
All projects have to go through and pass an in depth due diligence process. Find out more about how we select projects here and we have also included a few tips on how to conduct your own due diligence.
Now let’s get into the good stuff…
Who are Foxify?
Foxify is a first-of-its-kind, a decentralized trading platform offering peer-to-peer options and perpetuals trading. Foxify blends the best of both worlds, the trading experience of CeFi and the security of DeFi.
Not your keys, not your crypto: When a user deposits crypto funds on a centralized exchange, the user is at risk because the exchange can restrict the user from accessing his funds.
Not only that, the exchange can get exploited which can make users lose their deposited asset. This has happened many times in the crypto space.
Decentralization: In decentralized exchanges, users have total control over their assets and can withdraw these funds anytime. Foxify is completely run by smart contracts and this enables users to store their assets in the in-built non-custodial wallet.
This means there is no single point of failure that can be exploited.
KYC: Centralized exchanges also require users to reveal their online identity which not everyone is comfortable with. Also, this personal info can be used against the user if it falls into the wrong hands.
Foxify’s decentralized platform solves this because the user will not have to reveal their personal information. Only the user’s email is required and this email is only required to access the non-custodial wallet, so is completely optional.
Complicated UI and UX: Defi exchanges are known to have a complicated UI that many beginners find hard to navigate.
Foxify’s OptiTrade Technology solves this by creating a customizable UI that users can adjust to their taste, making the trading experience seamless
Cross-chain swap difficulty: Sending crypto assets to and fro blockchain protocols on decentralized exchanges is usually a hassle. Bridging can take hours if you are not familiar with the process.
Foxify allows users to bridge their assets across blockchains with ease.
Foxify serves as the bridge between centralized and decentralized exchanges; why choose one when you can have both?

Due Diligence report
When we assess projects, we cover a range of factors in our due diligence. The leading factor is always the team of course.
Critical factors we assess:
Team, serviceable obtainable market size (size of the opportunity the team can realistically seize), and stickiness (are people using the platform and coming back to use it again).
What specifically stands out at Foxify is that Danny Winn, the founder and CEO, delivered 700% growth in a bear market with his previous crypto project, after LUNA had crashed.
Moreso, that his community and investors in the previous startup have continued to back his efforts at Foxify, more than once. Seeing a community follow a founder who delivers, and continues to compound their conviction in the form of dollars, is quite rare in Web3.
On the socials, they are achieving steady growth and the quality and sentiment of the engagement is on the level of what we look for at Sphere. Even given that, they are doubling down efforts on community growth.
- CEO with recent former success track for investors in crypto
- Options and perps are a great opportunity, with outsized gains for the project that secures the attention and funds of the market
- The community actually use the early-stage products
- Simple and easy-to-understand interface
- KOLs onboard including Tyson Fury
- Scalable business model, well explained
- Coachable CEO
- Market maker attached
- CEX locked in
- Reasonable iMC
We urge you to consider that nothing is set in stone and that there are no guarantees. We perform due diligence to ensure that projects are ready to launch, however you should be doing your own research (DYOR) and not considering our opinion as any form of financial advice.

Foxify has already pulled some seriously impressive partners together, both from the ecosystem and from further afield to help grow awareness.
You can find a full list of their partners on the site. However, we have highlighted three below.
Foxify has partnered with Arbitrum to bring this experience to life. Arbitrum is an EVM-compatible layer 2 scaling solution for Ethereum that allows faster blockchain transactions while keeping fees minimal. Arbitrum is one of the fastest layer 2 solutions with over 50% YoY growth in the number of developers. Arbitrum also has about $1.7B TVL locked and 140,000 daily active users in its ecosystem.
Foxify has secured partnerships with boxing giant Tyson Fury. Tyson Fury is a professional boxer who has held the World Boxing Council heavyweight title since 2020. He has a record of 33 wins out of 34 fights. He is a renowned sportsman with a huge fanbase. And his fights have accumulated 25M in viewership.
Certik is a pioneer in the application of advanced Formal Verification techniques to smart contract audits. Working with Certik ensures that Foxify benefits from their stringent auditing process. With an expert’s review, automatic formal verification and mathematical guarantees, Certik’s audit can eliminate major exploits that can lead to the draining of smart contracts. This dramatically lowers security risks, which is crucial in protecting traders’ funds as we move to a decentralized future.
In this article, we wanted to give you a brief insight into Foxify and highlight a few areas why we feel they have real potential. However, it is just a starting point.
We strongly advise that if you are interested in taking part in this IDO, you now do your own due diligence.

Refund and Risk
All projects who do their IDO on our platform have to adhere to our strict refund policy, full details on this can be found here. This policy provides a safety net for all IDO investors for the important 24 hours post-launch.
Although we put significant effort into the due diligence we do, you should never feel this replaces your own due diligence. If you are investing in any project, be that with us or any other launchpad, it is of utmost importance that you do your own due diligence and only invest when you feel comfortable.
