Founded in Poland
We were founded in Poland as BitBay in 2014 by Sylwester Suszek, the cryptocurrency evangelist and industry speaker. In his previous career, Sylwester had co-founded two large finance companies, which helped form the partnerships to create a reliable, thriving exchange.
We launched the second version with pro tools
We launched the second version of our platform in 2015. What did we change? We made our platform easier to navigate and simpler to use. We also made the first of our BitBay Pro tools ready for users. We added new cryptocurrencies such as Etherum and Lisk. Our team expanded from 14 to 31 people. We also opened a second office in Amsterdam.
Team grows to 70+ People
At the beginning of 2016, we started to work on the third version of our platform. Our team expanded to 70 people. And in the meantime, we introduced new products such as BitcoinCantor and began allowing people to make Bitcoin payments.
