Interview with margin

What inspired you to found your startup?

Before we started margin we were writing our own crypto trading strategies and trading tools because there were no processional tools commercially available. The lack of trading technology in the digital asset space inspired us to found margin, so we could build and offer the technology ourselves.

How are you different? What is your unique value proposition?

Our trading technology has been used by thousands of users for over three years. We have deep technical knowledge and experience of the order routing process, and we offer the only stand-alone crypto trading terminal with dedicated algo trading and support for social features.

How do you define success for yourself and your company?

Success for us means to continue building a fast-growing company with an amazing team, and to play a major role in the professionalization of digital asset trading.

What do you want to achieve next year?

In the fast-paced crypto space, you learn and adapt on an hourly basis. We will continue to do that, and to thrive alongside of our growing retail customer base and our institutional partners.

Why do people want to work at your company?

Because they are part of an awesome team working towards making digital assets available for everyone.

What has been the most important milestone so far?

The launch of our trading terminal and the smart order router for institutions.

Looking back at your whole development story — what makes you most proud?

Building an amazing team!

Where do you see your company in 5 years?

Playing a major role in the digital asset trading space for institutions and retail traders.

What is your impression of launching a startup from your based city?

Best startup ecosystem in the world. See for yourself!
