As the company claims, the core value of tokens and tokenised assets on Ethereum is the communities around them, but these communities are often "dispersed, with information that is difficult to find, analyse, store, and track". Thus, according to the realease, the long-term vision for Ethfinex will be the creation of a highly liquid, customer-centric digital asset exchange and information platform

To accelerate the development of on-blockchain exchange the Ethfinex platform will pioneer a hybrid decentralised architecture, allowing decentralised exchanges to plug into it and trade with Ethfinex customers as well as each other, the team argues

Ethfinex will reflect the nature of the Ethereum community itself, building strong two-way relationships with other project teams.

According to the company, smart contracts and decentralisation will increasingly be built into everything Ethfinex does, alongside creating tools and modules necessary to interact with and contribute back to other projects in the ecosystem.
