Coinone, one of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges in South Korea, unveiled an infographic on Monday that captures the company’s decade-long history, according to local newspaper Busan Ilbo. Founded on Feb. 20, 2014, the exchange platform commemorates its 10th anniversary this year. As of Feb. 20 of this year, Coinone’s cumulative trading volume stands at KRW 452 trillion ($339.4 billion) with a total of 213 employees. The business significantly grew in size compared to 2015: its aggregate trading volume has increased by 645,000 times, while its user base and workforce have expanded by 944 and 25 times, respectively. 

Vision for the future: Prioritizing investor protection and blockchain innovation

Coinone is dedicated to continuing its pursuit of investor protection and blockchain innovation over the next 10 years. Since its establishment, Coinone operated its service without experiencing any security-related accidents. The company has proven its security capacity by winning the top prize at “the 22nd Information Protection Award.” The company further solidified its commitment to security by enrolling in “Personal Information Protection Reimbursement Insurance” in 2017 and has been renewing it annually.

From the Wild West to the leading crypto exchange 

The exchange began to offer an Ethereum trading service in 2016 and a virtual asset staking service in 2018, suggesting a new way of investment back in the days when the market centered around trading. 
Cha Myeong-hun, CEO of Coinone, said, “The cryptocurrency market was deemed the Wild West a decade ago. It fills me with pride to see how Coinone navigated the market and witnessed all the ups and downs of the crypto industry until it positioned itself as a well-established industry in Korea. In particular, 2024 marks the inaugural year of the Virtual Asset Act’s implementation. We are committed to leading a healthy virtual asset market by focusing more on investor protection and regulatory compliance.”
