Our focus has always been on providing the best standards of security, high throughput, safe and low latency environment so that traders can access our highly liquid markets. Our team is made up of visionary developers who combine imagination with practical expertise to craft solutions to market’s toughest challenges. Bitfinex lists almost 200 different tokens and 400 different spot trading pairs. It also lists over 60 perpetual futures contracts. It regularly reviews all the tokens listed on the exchange to ensure they meet our standards of governance and liquidity. Known as the Home of Digital Assets Trading, Bitfinex is the preferred trading venue for institutions and professional traders. Over the last decade, Bitfinex has worked relentlessly to educate customers about the benefits and attributes of Bitcoin and the blockchain, while providing a technically superior environment to buy, hold and sell tokens. Our leading-edge solutions, services, and knowledge have been the foundation of our success and allowed us to execute on a bigger, more comprehensive global vision that enables us to further the true principles of Bitcoin: equality, justice, and freedom. In our digital world, we have more tools than ever at our disposal that enable people to transact and interact freely with each other. However, many of these tools have been structured so that transactions are routed through centralised servers that store private information, and charge high prices that are unaffordable to many of the communities that need them most. At Bitfinex our mission is to build state-of-the-art technology that enables people to transact and interact freely and privately. We believe that Bitcoin provides a technology and a payments solution that meets the need for a fast, efficient and private service. With no centralised servers and unnecessary intermediaries - and at near zero-cost - it enables financial inclusion and financial freedom. We are also inspired by the Bitcoin ethos of decentralisation to develop peer-to-peer solutions that enable freedom of speech, and are proud to be a major shareholder in Holepunch, which has pioneered distributed systems. We strongly believe that mass acceptance of crypto is most likely to occur because of its permissionless features, and its ability to create a more open and equitable world. Bitfinex was born at the dawn of the Bitcoin revolution, and everything we do is focused on creating simple, dependable, and accessible technology that promotes freedom.
We are white hat hackers and technologists contributing to the evolution of Bitcoin and crypto markets and realising the potential that this technology brings. Our people have a sense of ownership and mission that their work can impact millions of people worldwide. Our team is composed of many enthusiastic individuals who are highly motivated self-starters and are comfortable with autonomy and lifelong learning. When we are not working we are dreaming about it. We place our egos aside and thrive within a culture that fosters everyone’s contribution from the birth of a concept to the launch of a product. We have a proven track record of innovation that draws on the expertise of our core engineering and cryptography teams. We have always seen integrity, and standing up for what is right, as important qualities, even if it means acting alone. We remain a small group of technology-focused developers at our core, working together to create high-calibre goods and services that advance freedom everywhere.
Education is the key to creating positive societal change. We invest in educational initiatives around the world, to advance the understanding of Bitcoin and to foster greater financial education and inclusion. We remain committed to building a better, more equitable future, and our goal is to provide the resources, support and environment for Bitcoin education.
