Coinfloor is the UK’s No. 1 Bitcoin exchange. Founded with a focus on trust, security and reliability, our goal has always been to create a safe and accessible place to trade and invest in bitcoins. Coinfloor’s history goes back to 2012 when we experienced first hand the challenges of buying, selling and trading bitcoins in the UK, and wanted to build a business that solved this problem.
Coinfloor’s team is passionate about Bitcoin. The promise of Bitcoin as an asset and money system is something that brings us all together. Our team has worked together at multiple businesses over the last 10 years. Obi Nwosu (Managing Director) has over 20 years of experience building online marketplaces including QXL and WeeWorld, a service where tens of millions of users bought virtual items using a virtual currency. Mark Lamb (Commercial Director) was one of the UK's first bitcoin brokers, at one point personally handling over 10% of UK bitcoin volume. He is also on the Forbes "30 under 30" list for people in Finance.
Coinfloor has attracted funding from a top-tier early stage VC fund, Passion Capital, and Taavet Hinrikus, the co-founder of TransferWise and first employee of Skype. We also are backed by private investors including Adam Knight, the former MD of Goldman Sachs and Credit Suisse’s commodities trading business. Adam also is the Chairman of Coinfloor’s board.
We have brought together the UK’s top bitcoin brokers in order to provide our users with a simple way of buying bitcoins. Our trusted and vetted brokers are committed to servicing users who wish to purchase bitcoins simply, safely and quickly without going through the more involved process of trading on an exchange.
Our Team, Investors and Brokers work together to provide a reliable and safe Bitcoin exchange, enabling more people to invest and trade in one of the most revolutionary inventions of our time.
