Today is a very privileged day, as for the first time in the existence of CryptoArticles, we can do a featured article about a Belgian Crypto company. To make it even better, it’s actually a Belgian Crypto exchange. This, is CoinNext!
CoinNext is an online trading platform where users can buy and sell Crypto. We all know this an an “exchange”. Being in existence since January 2014, and located in Antwerp, Belgium, CoinNext has an uphill battle in front of them. So what makes them unique?
Maybe we should look at the team making up CoinNext first. One of the founders, Sebastian Mortelmans, has vast experience in design, engineering and marketing. He’s also one of the early Bitcoin adopters, and has owned a Bitcoin startup in 2013, which has since been sold.
The second founder, Dumitru Glavan, is a highly experienced software engineer with extensive knowledge of Crypto protocols. A very important asset to have if you’re running an exchange. His specialty is building large-scale applications for over 1 million users.
Last but not least, there is Thomas Spaas, who serves as CoinNext’s advisor and legal council. Being a Belgian and international tax attorney, and specialising in the tax and legal treatment of Bitcoin, and being co-director of the Belgian Bitcoin Association, Mr. Spaas is an invaluable member of the team.
One of the most important aspects of running a successful Crypto exchange is security. CoinNext stores a majority of deposits in offline wallets. Funds necessary to maintain operational liquidity are kept in online wallets, but just the bare minimum.
All Crypto wallets are encrypted at all times, with the actual wallets, as well as their paper backups, being stored in several geographically distributed vaults. Full reserves are maintained at all times by CoinNext.
What I really like about CoinNext, is the fact they offer a sort of trial period. To be more precise, when you create an account, there will be no trading fees for 90 days. Deposits are without fees, and withdrawals are subject to a small fee to cover transaction costs.
I’m sure you’re all dying to know which coins are listed on CoinNext. They have quite an impressive list of coins which can all be traded against Bitcoin :
Litecoin, PeerCoin, DogeCoin, NameCoin, PrimeCoin, BlackCoin, DarkCoin, VertCoin, Cryptometh, GuldenCoin, TacoCoin, XtraCoin, BankCoin, Bitraam, HomoCoin, MaxCoin, AntarcticCoin, ViolinCoin, VeriCoin and IndoCoin.
