A note from our founder:

Over the last decade, the cryptocurrency industry has created a tremendous amount of value. From a denomination in billions just years ago, the market has grown to well over $1 trillion in size. Yet, the level of cryptocurrency adoption is still in the ballpark of 5% worldwide. That means only a small group of people benefits from the opportunities created in this new frontier of finance and technology.

It became increasingly common to hear about someone’s life changing after discovering cryptocurrencies — the stories of cab drivers, bartenders, hairdressers, and more. But it is still hard to place yourself in the position to succeed in digital assets on your terms, securely, simply, and with minimal effort.

That’s why we built CEX.IO App - to give busy people a leg-up in handling their crypto.

Since 2013, when CEX.IO began with the mission to serve as a guide into the world of crypto, we’ve made it possible for people to capture billions in value. For many of them, we were their first intro to cryptocurrencies. We’d be honored to accompany you into this world of opportunities too.
