About Us


How Fsntrades started

Founded and registered in UK in 2005, Fsntrades was created to provide credit services to markets with limited access to simple financial products. Fsntrades sets itself apart from other digital assets service providers by pairing competitive rates with institutional-quality benefits. Fsntrades is the only independent lender with institutional backing from investors that include Valar Ventures, Galaxy Digital, Fidelity, Akuna Capital, SoFi, and Coinbase Ventures. The Fsntrades team consists of professionals with a deep bench of expertise across financial services and technology with offices in United Kingdon, New Jersey, Singapore, Poland, and Argentina. Additionally, Gemini Trust Company, LLC, a New York trust company regulated by the New York State Department of Financial Services, is Fsntrades's primary custodian.
