Bitcoin and ethereum token exchange

We are building the next generation of financial markets.

Founded in 2013 by investment bankers, Gatecoin is a bitcoin and ethereum token exchange designed for both professional traders and retail investors. Through our intuitive trading platform, we enable individuals and institutions around the world to trade and invest in a wide variety of cryptocurrencies and blockchain assets.

Licensed as a Hong Kong Money Service Operator (MSO), we enforce strict know-your-customer (KYC) and anti-money laundering (AML) compliance policies which are regulated by the Hong Kong Customs & Excise Department. We maintain close relationships with regulators and law enforcement agencies across the world and are committed to complying with the relevant laws and regulations in all jurisdictions where we operate.

Thanks to our international payments network, our clients can fund their accounts through fiat currency bank transfers in HKD, EUR and USD. We are working to facilitate additional funding options soon and welcome additional cooperation with banks and payment service providers.

Our exchange infrastructure is designed, monitored and audited by world-class security experts to prevent theft of client assets and information. We store the majority of blockchain asset deposits in offline multi-signature hardware wallets (cold storage) and maintain 24/7 monitoring of our exchange to detect suspicious activity.

Gatecoin has been an early supporter of bitcoin inspired technologies, as the first exchange in the world to list ethereum’s token, ether (ETH) in August 2015. We were subsequently the first exchange to list ERC20 standard tokens associated with decentralized applications (dapps) built on top of ethereum and the first to provide direct participation in token generation events (TGEs) or initial coin offerings (ICOs). We continue to support the most promising blockchain based projects, acting as a global gateway to decentralized applications.

As cryptocurrencies and blockchain tokens challenge and transform forex and capital markets, Gatecoin is the marketplace bridging the two domains. We are the NASDAQ for the blockchain era.
