About Asher Tan
Asher Tan is the co-founder and CEO of CoinJar. In 2013, tired of being on the sidelines as an analyst, he saw an opportunity to unite his passion for finance and technology, establishing what became CoinJar today – a range of fintech products including a wallet, trading platform and CoinJar Swipe, a cryptocurrency debit card.
Established in 2013, CoinJar is one of the longest-running digital currency exchanges in the world. Our services allow users to buy, sell, store and spend digital assets.
We make digital currency accessible
As an award-winning, venture capital-backed startup, we’re known for our simple and easy-to-use products. Innovations such as the popular digital currency debit card, CoinJar Swipe, and our mobile application CoinJar Touch have put digital currency in the hands of hundreds of thousands of people. Our sights are set on building valuable applications in the digital currency industry – best in class products that work to your benefit. We’re excited about the technology behind digital currency.
Since CoinJar started in May 2013, we’ve worked with the cryptocurrency community, governments and regulators to bring digital currency into the mainstream.
Our values and culture
Our team’s focus is on improving financial experiences with technology. We achieve this by:
Shipping (code and product updates) often
We want digital currency to be accessible to as many people as possible. By shipping often, we improve our product and provide more value to our users continuously.
From the quality of our code to our customer service, we practise empathy and seek to understand the needs and feelings of our users. This ensures we’re building better financial experiences that address real problems.
Continuously searching for improvement and knowledge
Our team is bonded by our common goal to learn and improve. This attitude keeps us on our toes, and affords us the ability to learn from our mistakes. At CoinJar, we’re committed to staying true to ourselves and building a team that cultivates our values. We take a lot of pride in our work and our vision, and the journey has been and continues to be a wild adventure.
CoinJar is backed by some of the world’s most forward-thinking investors including Blackbird Ventures, Boost VC and the Digital Currency Group.
