How to list a token on Ethfinex Exchange using the Kleros Token Curated Registry.

On first viewing of tokens.kleros.io it will likely look something like this. 
Please note: the Ethfinex token vote has paused in connection with Ethfinex's evolution into DeversiFi, please stay tuned for further updates on this: https://blog.ethfinex.com/ethfinex-token-vote-break/

Quick Guide

  1. Submit your token and wait for the registration to be approved (2 days)
  2. Add the Ethfinex Compliant Badge to your token and wait for verification (5 days)
  3. A subset of 12 tokens with the Ethfinex Compliant Badges will be put forward to the NEC community vote every month
  4. Tokens which finish in the top three spots in the community vote will be listed to Ethfinex and Bitfinex.

There are three stages to listing on Ethfinex exchange. Each stage must be completed in order to do so, just submitting a token to the TCR above is not enough.

NOTE: Projects MUST have valid badges before going forward to the Nectar Community Vote.

1 - Submit a token to the list

Fill in the required info as stated above. Double check the logo is a transparent PNG and hit 'submit' paying the token listing deposit. 

Upon submission, your listing should look something like the token below.

The submission is not yet accepted to the Token Curated List. 

Upon clicking on your submission you will see the info displayed below including the challenge period. This is the time allotted for other users to challenge the listing in the case of incorrect data or logo format.

Click on your submission to see the current status.

Once this challenge deadline has passed, the token status will change to 'Registered' as shown below. Remember, users can also challenge the submission which will send it to trial to be arbitrated on by Kleros jurors.

They will make the final decision based on any evidence given if the token should be listed or not.

A registered token on the TCR. This means it's now possible to request an Ethfinex badge. 

2 - Add a badge to the token

This Gif shows the process to add a badge to a registered token on the list. In this case, we've chosen Chainlink for the explainer. 

As you can see above, the token has been accepted to the list (stage one) but doesn't yet have a valid badge. To add a badge, follow the steps in the animated Gif above.

You can see the status of all badge requests by clicking 'Badge Requests' shown in the image below.

This page shows all the requested badges and their current status. Only those that are 'Registered' are available for the Ethfinex Nectar Vote Community Pool. 

Clicking on a challenged badge will show the information below. Here, users can upload evidence which will be sent to Kleros jurors.

Clicking on a challenged submission will open a screen like the one above. 

Below, we can see a 'Registered Badge' (in this case Gnosis) meaning the token is eligible for the Ethfinex Community Vote.

NOTE: This does not mean it has been listed to Ethfinex Exchange but it IS eligible for the Nectar Community Voting Pool.

Gnosis has a registered badge. This means it is eligible to go forward to the voting pool in which Nectar Token holders can choose which project they would most like listed on the exchange. 

3 - Take part in the community vote

This is the final part of the process. Tokens which have successfully completed Stage one: Accepted to the Token Curated List and Stage Two: They have a valid badge are now eligible to go forward to the Nectar Token holders Community voting process.

NEC token holders can choose from a pool of verified tokens which have received a badge using their NEC tokens to vote on which token they believe should be listed to the Ethfinex Exchange.

Quick Recap

  1. Submit your token and wait for the registration to be approved (2 days)

  3. A subset of 12 tokens with the Ethfinex Compliant Badges will be put forward to the NEC community vote every month
