Business Model

We don't charge any fees for trading on WCX. We make money on the spread between the bid and ask.

Our vision is to offer a fast and secure platform to advance the use and adoption of crypto around the world. Our founders are early crypto investors and have made a generous donation to fund WCX’s growth for many years. This money allows our team to build products in line with our long term vision, without the pressure of making short-term profit.


Our founders have worked at the world's leading tech companies in Silicon Valley. To ensure the personal safety of our team and the security of customer funds, all of our team members adopt aliases (learn more).
