BitBay becomes Zonda 🎉
Yup, you read it right. Today is a big day for us – BitBay is now Zonda.
Yup, you read it right. Today is a big day for us – BitBay is now Zonda. We are changing our name and logo, and moving our website to the new domain of zondaglobal.com. At the same time, all the user logins, accounts and passwords will stay the same, and our trading platform and app will not be affected in any way. So breathe out, and let us walk you through the main updates and introduce you to Zonda’s plans and ambitions.
So why do we rebrand?
We have come a long way since those early days in Poland, when just 3,000 users would use our platform predominantly to trade Bitcoin. Fast forward to today and BitBay is a well-known brand for European cryptocurrency investors, with more than one million registered users, a suite of products, and over 50 currencies available to trade.
Eight years of growth, and a rapidly expanding portfolio of products, have led us to the next step in our evolution. A new name, Zonda, which reflects the ‘winds of change’ currently taking place in the industry; a new strategy, focused on regulation, simplification, and education; and a new leadership team, with ambitions to grow the company’s global footprint.
The newly appointed board of directors includes Przemysław Kral as CEO; Kamil Sikorski as Chief Growth Officer; and David Sendecki as CCO.
More than just a name change
Starting from today, 8th November 2021, you will see the first signs of change: a new homepage, name, logo, and design. In Q2/Q3 2022, we are aiming to launch a new trading platform and mobile application, designed to make the process of entering and participating in the cryptocurrency market as simple and secure as possible.
A new Zonda Academy, set to launch at the beginning of 2022, is being built to help a new generation of investors understand, experiment with, and spend cryptocurrencies in a hands-on environment.
Regulation and transparency as standard
The cryptocurrency industry is standing at a fork in the road. One path leads to greater regulation, and the other to pure decentralization. At Zonda, we plan to take the path less trodden, working closely with regulators around the world to create an open and supportive market that protects consumers from fraudulent activity without stifling independence or innovation.
This vision of ours is largely influenced by our new CEO Przemysław Kral, who previously held the post of Chief Legal Officer at BitBay and has 20 years of experience in the legal field. Przemysław helped Bitbay to obtain an Estonian FIU license and become the first exchange in Estonia passing the full financial audit. He is working closely with regulators across the world to create a regulatory blueprint for cryptocurrency exchanges.
