Coinlager – Non-custodial crypto exchange, like the history have taught us

Article | October 26, 2020

If the history have taught us anything it’s to never trust anyone else with your digital money. That is why when dealing with digital money such as cryptocurrency or tokens you should always store it at another place from where you bought it. Coinlager is doing exactly this, focusing on what its primarily feature is – to allow customers to buy cryptocurrencies in a quick, transparent and safe manner. Ever since Satoshi mined the first Bitcoin crypto has been on the rise. In the beginning it was more of a subculture rather than a respected currency, something which has definitely changed over the past decade. There was one company for those of you who remembers called MT Gox that was the number 1 choice for any cryptocurrency trader between 2010 – 2013, at most the covered 70% of the Bitcoin tradable market. In February 2014 it however came to an abrupt stop since MT Gox announced that approximately 850,000 Bitcoins had been stolen from their Hot Wallet, valued at $450 million at that time. Even though the MT Gox hack is by far the biggest almost all of the larger exchanges have at some stage been targeted by hackers and in some cases succeeded in stealing cryptocurrencies. “We were actually one of the early adapters to crypto back in 2011, using MT Gox as a day-trading solution to increase our assets of Bitcoin. Everything were going smoothly until the crash in 2014 where we also lost all our Bitcoins. We haven’t really spent too much time dwelling on it, but when we see that people are still relying too much on using the same company for both thee crypto and the wallet service we thought we had to do something about it. The problem has always been that seperatiing the two services have not been user-friendly – this is what we are changing, giving the customers a super easy and quick way to buy their crypto and send it over to their desired wallet.” Krzysztof Mysiak So what is it that Coinlager essentially does? It’s simple, we sell cryptocurrencies to the customers. Customers can register over at Coinlager in seconds and be able to purchase their favourite cryptocurrency immediately. Relying on modernised technologies we can verify the customers in real-time, giving them the chance to not have to wait for hours or even days when their account becomes activated. It doesn’t have to be overly complicated where customers do not understand what they are buying or how much it costs. With Coinlager we show the customers A) What they are buying B) What our fees are C) Where the crypto will be sent to (customer’s choice).
