Mati Greenspan, the financial-markets analyst who stepped down last month from crypto-friendly trading platform eToro to start his own research and consulting firm, plans to offer training videos on trading bitcoin and other digital assets through the website Cointelligence.

Greenspan, whose new firm Quantum Economics specializes in research and analysis on financial markets, says the new online training course will include some interactive features and will likely cover trading strategies as well as a broad overview of the crypto industry and economic topics that could affect the price of digital assets like bitcoin.

The course will launch "soon," said Greenspan. He expects to offer some in-depth but broad analysis of the crypto markets.

"Crypto has to be seen from a macro perspective," Greenspan said in a phone interview.

Greenspan, 36, built up a following in the crypto markets as a senior market analyst for eToro, which started out as a foreign-exchange website but pivoted in 2017 to add a focus on bitcoin and other digital assets.

Cointelligence specializes in crypto-focused training courses and market-surveillance tools including an exchange-rating system, according to its website. The company also provides research to corporate clients on blockchain and cryptocurrency topics. Cointelligence CEO On Yavin confirmed the arrangement with Greenspan via a WhatsApp message. 

Greenspan's new firm is one of a growing number of research shops set up in recent years to provide analysis on cryptocurrencies, a role typically played in traditional financial markets by Wall Street brokerages and credit-rating firms.
