Background

Quoine was founded in 2014 by Mike Kayamori and Mario Gomez Lozada. The same year, the company launched Quoinex, a digital platform for fiat-to-crypto trading. In 2015, the company added margin trading to Quoinex and developed a mobile app for the platform. Quoine opened its headquarters in Tokyo, Japan in 2015. Later that year, the company secured $20 million in VC funding. In 2017, Quoine launched Qryptos, an exchange that supported crypto-to-crypto trading, as well as Quoine's first ICO, with which they raised over $100 million. Later that year, the company was granted an official license from the Financial Services Agency of Japan, making Quoinex and Qryptos the first exchanges to be granted such a license. In 2018, Quoinex and Qryptos were merged to create the Liquid exchange.[1]
