Santiment is building the Bloomberg of cryptocurrency. It is providing a platform for investors to receive clear and researched financial information as well as sentiment data. Santiment aims to provide traders with market research and datafeeds to aid in their investments of cryptocurrency.

Santiment’s ICO raised $11.7 million dollars between 710 participants in July 2017. They were one of the first companies to implement a whitelist process for their token sale to ensure that their most dedicated community members could receive priority access.

Santiment aims to provide a subscription-based platform where users can contribute accurate market research as well as use the community-based research to aid in the own investments. When using the platform, the amount of tokens someone holds will correlate with the amount of data they can see.

The SAN token is used for the following purposes:

  1. They can give holders access to a limited stream of content and data feeds. These holders will also be allowed to share this information with their customer base.
  2. They are required to participate in any Santiment auctions that sell off datasets or datafeeds.
  3. Participants that contribute positively to the platform can be rewarded with SAN.
