Making Cryptocurrency a part of everyday life

Our mission at Eve Exchange is to provide the technology and infrastructure needed for people worldwide to harness the true power of crypto, not just trade it.

The original vision of Bitcoin was to create a global payments network that would allow users to make peer-to-peer payments quickly, cheaply, easily and securely without reliance on a central authority.

However, today, cryptocurrency is regarded (by most) as a speculative investment or new asset class to trade and hopefully profit from, whereas crypto has much more potential than that.

By making crypto more convenient & cost-effective with a built-in real-goods marketplace/e-commerce solution that enables it to function in commerce more efficiently, we hope to impact the lives of millions.

As we transition towards better ways of storing value and transacting, our aim is for Eve to be the epicentre for enhanced collaboration that harnesses the power of people and technology!
