We are excited to announce a new chapter in the ChainEX journey. Our fresh, new-look platform with amazing new features launches on December 6th, 2018. Due to the launch, the platform will be down from the 4th until the 6th of December to prepare for the upgrade. In the meantime, we’d like to share a little about who we are and where it all started.
We operate from the surfing mecca, Jeffreys Bay, on the Eastern Cape coast of South Africa. We developed a world-class digital exchange platform that gives our users access to some of the largest digital currencies worldwide. ChainEX launched in March 2018 and was founded by CEO, Otto Lessing, CTO, Ryno Mathee and CFO, Martin de Bruin. It is set to become one of the most recognised cryptocurrencies and digital exchange platforms globally. It offers investors access to cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP) and Litecoin (LTC) using the South African rand as the default fiat-buying currency for some.
Our vision clearly defines what we are about — “Through its digital exchange platform, ChainEX provides an efficient, innovative and secure environment for new and advanced traders to participate in the revolution cryptocurrency is bringing to the world.”
We are renowned for our stellar customer support and easy verification process. We also offer our users unparalleled access to a vast range of crypto assets and strive to provide the best possible user experience for our traders. We believe the future is cryptocurrency and we aim to position ourselves as a premier crypto exchange platform.
What sets ChainEX apart from other digital exchange platforms in South Africa is that we are the only digital asset exchange that provides a platform for South Africans to buy, sell or trade over 40 different digital assets using the South African rand as the fiat currency.
ChainEX: The beginning
But where did it all start?
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 researched further, he decided he had to get involved although he did not know how to yet.
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 ChainEX journey began. Then with one random conversation, the team met a new friend who also happened to be a systems architect and involved in the crypto world since 2013. This new friend 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 future is bright at ChainEX as we continuously work on improving the ChainEX exchange by providing a trading platform that is secure, user-friendly and reliable with a well-tested, highly scalable matching engine. To achieve this, we are continuously upgrading our exchange with amazing new features to keep up with the fast-paced crypto world.
Our plans also include expanding our asset base by introducing more digital asset currencies to our trading platform, thereby providing our local and global users with an even better experience and more exposure to the world of cryptocurrencies.
The launch will include some amazing promotions so check out https://chainex.io as well as our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages for all the details as to how you can get rewarded for joining ChainEX. Mark your calendar for the 6th of December and check out the new and improved ChainEX!
