Over the past five years we have built up expertise in all areas of running a financial technology and cryptocurrency business. New entrants struggle to deal with the complexity of running a brokerage and that’s why we decided to build this product. It supports our vision to accelerate the adoption of cryptocurrencies by building bridges with the traditional economy.12 July 2020
