The Exchange Union Team

At Exchange Union, we are passionate about decentralization. We are creating a platform which will disrupt many of the existing financial instruments we are used to today. We believe that trustless and decentralized structures must be put in place to empower individuals and equalize our global economy, and this can now truly be achieved for the first time with digital assets.

True to our core philosophy, which encourages transparency in all that we do, we have made our infrastructure open-source to encourage and engage the best minds to contribute. We know it is not easy to implement something so radical in concept, but that’s just part of the challenge. And we love challenges. Our team is spread across the globe from countries and cultures of all backgrounds, working collaboratively in a truly decentralized fashion. Whether it is our ever-expanding open-source community or our full-time team, every one of us truly represents the spirit of our company: dynamic, creative, committed, and fun!
