After years of using centralized cryptocurrency exchanges, we decided we could do better. That is when we committed to creating a truly free (as in freedom, not as in beer) cryptocurrency site allowing people to transact without barriers.
Over the past few years we have used Localbitcoins, and tried Paxful. As time went on, additional restrictions and limits were put in place that hampered our ability to move money around as we wished.
To counter this increasingly restrictive environment, we set about programming a crypto exchange from the ground up, to give these freedoms back to users everywhere.
