Job Details

Who We Are

We are an international team of passionate fintech veterans with a shared belief that managing crypto should be much simpler. That’s why we are building a new way to learn, earn, and exchange crypto assets. Before coming together, we founded companies, built amazing fintech products, and raised capital with some of the world’s best.

What We Are Building

We are building an easy-to-use crypto marketplace to help make mass adoption as seamless as possible. Through multiple integrations and partnerships, our product provides one place to buy, earn, sell, and exchange crypto assets, decentralized finance (DeFi) tokens and protocols, and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). In addition to the buy, sell, exchange elements, we also provide a new kind of social-first crypto information platform that allows verified users to interact with each other in a way that will make creating and sharing better quality and higher value information easier.

Why We Do It

The revolution of code-based money and financial services will change the world — for the better. We want to help lead the charge and educate people about how they can take more control of financial matters. We believe most of the world is still missing out on the opportunities in crypto and DeFi because these new technologies are still cumbersome to use. Accessing decentralized financial products shouldn’t require twenty steps - just like taking control of your money shouldn’t require a degree in cryptography.

Whether you are investing in your future here on earth or planning to buy an island in your favorite metaverse, we’re working hard to become your trusted crypto marketplace that makes this new form of finance easy and inviting for all, without compromising on security, safety, and privacy.
