ChainEX is the only digital asset exchange that provides a platform for South Africans to buy, sell or trade over 30 different digital assets using the South African rand as the default fiat-buying currency for some.
ChainEX’s director, Otto Lessing said their mission is to provide a world-class platform that is secure, user-friendly and reliable with a well-tested, highly scalable matching engine to benefit not only South African but also international users – supporting trading in more than 200 countries.
ChainEX is playing its part in meeting the world’s ever-increasing appetite for cryptocurrencies, said Lessing.
The increased interest in cryptocurrencies comes as no surprise as more and more people are looking to get involved in this exciting opportunity.
ChainEX’s future plans include expanding its asset base by introducing more digital asset currencies to its trading platform and implementing scaling fees from the 18th of June, thereby providing its users with an even better experience and more exposure to cryptocurrencies.
ChainEX was founded early in 2018, but the dream of creating a digital asset exchange existed long before then. In 2015, one of our executive team members was introduced to cryptocurrencies after eavesdropping on a conversation between two people over breakfast.
Curiosity got the better of him, and after reading up on what he heard and researching the subject further, he decided he had to get involved. He didn’t know the details yet, but he knew he had to do something.
Eager to share his excitement about this newly discovered technology, he spoke to some of his friends (now shareholders) and spurred on by passion and excitement, with a vague idea of what they wanted to achieve, the journey to ChainEX began.
Then, with one random conversation, the team met a new friend, who also happened to be a systems architect. ChainEX had a new friend, who had an overseas investment partner and wanted to launch a digital asset exchange. The difference, however, was that they KNEW how to do it! The rest, as they say, is history.
The ChainEX journey may sound like a story that only happens by chance, once in a lifetime or only to a select few. But ChainEX doesn’t believe in chance, coincidence or that success is only reserved for some.
The team believes in purpose and that if you make up your mind and follow your dreams wholeheartedly, believing that anything is possible, the rest will follow.
