Over the weekend of March 23-24, two of our team members, Tom Counsell and Tony Cannella, ventured out of Prague to attend a startup “bootcamp” hosted by DEX Innovation Center (DEXIC). The event was held in Liberec, also in the Czech Republic.
DEX Innovation Center hosts an accelerator program powered by Interreg Danube, designed to accelerate business, marketing, and sales/investor presentation skills. They provide startups with intensive “bootcamps” and 6-week accelerator programs, and we were interested to see what they had to offer.
We participated in their 2-day bootcamp, and had a great opportunity to pitch our company, learn from one-on-one mentoring sessions, and get feedback on our business model.
Overall, it was a very rewarding experience. We were able to meet other entrepreneurs in the industry, and also network with some promising early-stage startup companies.
Partnership with Nefertiti
ITF has also recently teamed up with the Crypto Trading Bot, Nefertiti. They provide a free, command-line trading bot that allows users to choose from various signals providers, with ITF Signals now included in that list.
The bot currently supports the Binance exchange, KuCoin, Bittrex, HitBTC, Coinbase Pro, Bitstamp, and CEX.IO. To read more about the partnership and how to set up ITF Signals on Nefertiti, see their medium blog post on our cooperation here.

Recent Product Updates
ITF Portfolios Beta Now Open
The team at ITF has been diligently working behind the scenes for months now, and the wait is finally over — ITF Portfolios is now open for beta!
If you haven’t already, create an account today for your free early access to the product!
ITF Portfolios is for anybody looking for a simple and easy-to-use tool to view, manage, and even automatically rebalance their portfolio allocations in various crypto-assets.
We’re hoping to show you just how easy it can be, and to improve our tool around what you, our users, want and need from the developing product.
Join us in building a product that empowers forward-thinking investors like yourself to be more sophisticated with their alternative investments.
What’s Happening Next with the Product
More Exchange Support for ITF Portfolios
For now, ITF Portfolios can be connected only with your Binance exchange account. As development progresses, however, we will add more exchanges and wallet support so you can connect ITF Portfolios across multiple exchanges.
Up next on the list is Coinbase Pro. We hope to have this support rolled out soon, so expect updates in the near future on which exchanges will be included in the list.
Advanced Portfolio Customization
We will also be adding advanced customization features to ITF Portfolios.
Currently, you can only select from a pre-built ITF index. In the upcoming months, however, we’ll allow you to create your own index of any crypto-assets you have on your connected exchange, decide on your specific allocations, and choose your rebalancing periods or thresholds.
The plan is to add more and more assets, focusing on the cryptocurrencies our users want and need. We want you to have everything required to manage your portfolio’s allocations in crypto-assets and for your overall wealth management.
You tell us!
The main idea behind this beta launch is to find out what assets, exchanges, and features our users want to see added to the product.
We are building this tool to help you, our community. If you’re using ITF Portfolios, or have ideas on how we could make it more useful for you, please let us know. We’re listening!
Reach out to us: @tryITF on Twitter, or @IntelligentTradingFoundation (ITT Token) on Facebook. We highly value your input and look forward to ensuring ITF Portfolios delivers exceptional value to investors like you!
