About Us

Our mission is to educate the world about blockchain and crypto. And we’re having fun doing it!

Our Story

We launched Coinifide in 2016 as a company focused on building a decentralized, peer-to-peer cryptocurrency exchange with real-time market data analytics. We quickly learned that very few people actually understood how to transact with cryptocurrencies or were knowledgable about blockchain technology and its applications. 
                                                                                                                                                                                    
So now we’re creating content, building tools, and forging relationships to significantly increase the level of education and adoption of blockchain technologies. We’re distributing this education to universities, enterprises, and everywhere online.
                                                                                                                                                                               
We’re dedicating our lives to educating the world about the power of blockchain and crypto and how they will impact every job, company, and industry across the globe. And we won’t stop until everyone benefits from this game-changing technology.
