10 Years of CoinJar

10 Years of CoinJar

Today, we celebrate the 10th anniversary of CoinJar, an event that marks a decade of innovation, growth, and educating the community.

When CoinJar was founded in 2013, Bitcoin was still a relatively unknown concept. There were very few platforms around the world available for buying and selling cryptocurrencies. While our initial focus was helping people in Australia buy their first Bitcoin, from the very beginning, the team had global ambitions of cryptocurrency enabled finance.

Over the years, we have worked tirelessly to build a platform that not only provides a safe and secure way to trade cryptocurrencies but hopefully captures the imagination of what can be possible when you have access to decentralised money.

We have weathered the ups and downs of the cryptocurrency market, from the highs of bull runs to the lows of multiple crypto winters. Yet, throughout it all, we have remained committed to our mission of democratising access to the world of cryptocurrency with easy to use products.

We are proud to say that over the past ten years, we have processed billions of dollars worth of trades and served hundreds of thousands of happy customers across Australia and the United Kingdom. Our platform has grown to support a wide range of cryptocurrencies, from Bitcoin and Ethereum to newer projects like Polkadot and Solana – providing the same ease of use to buy, sell, store and spend.


But our success is not just measured in the numbers. It is measured in the impact that we have had on our users, who have turned to us for a safe and reliable way to invest in the future of finance. We have helped individuals and businesses to navigate the complex world of cryptocurrency through our platform as they look to build wealth and access utility enabled by decentralised money.

From early Meetups and events to thought leadership at government level, we've fostered learning opportunities for all levels of the community. In the same spirit, today we launch CoinJar Learn, bringing educational content to help users learn more about cryptocurrency. Starting with cryptocurrency basics and longer form thematic articles, we have plans to add more engaging, topical subjects to empower you to make informed decisions.

What's important

As we look forward to the next ten years, we are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. We believe that cryptocurrency has the power to transform the way we think about money and finance, and we are committed to playing a key role in shaping that future.

We want to thank our customers, partners, and supporters for joining us on this incredible journey. We couldn't have made it this far without you, and we look forward to continuing to serve you for many years to come.

- Asher, CEO @ CoinJar
