From Crib to Crypto

When Paul met Haydee he knew they would be partners for life. She was just a day old, and as her big brother he was delighted to have someone to boss around. As he grew older, Paul became fascinated by computers and the world of possibilities that came with the internet. Meanwhile, Haydee’s entrepreneurial mindset was surfacing, and she began to launch small ‘businesses’ to earn extra cash.

Fittingly, Paul ended up revolving his career around tech while Haydee progressed in finance. The cross-section of their interests naturally drew them into the world of bitcoin in 2013. Now self-acclaimed crypto geeks, they’ve experienced the whole rollercoaster of emotions: FOMO, joy, despair... and although they prefer the ups to the downs, they love the ride all the same!

From Frustration to Creation

As Paul progressed from trading crypto on the side to launching a crypto proprietary trading desk, the pains that he experienced in the arena amplified. Now that the stakes were high, the difficulties associated with trading on multiple exchanges, the absence of options for holistic portfolio management with hardware wallets, the frustrations of dealing with taxes, and the slow and unintuitive interfaces became serious concerns.

He tried everything on the market but none of the solutions came close to fulfilling his needs. The lack of alternatives drove him to build his own platform which aggregated different exchanges, hardware wallets, alerts, taxes and so on. When he showed the solution to his trading peers, everyone wanted to get their hands on it.

From Personal to Commercial

One Christmas, Paul shared his creation with Haydee and she fell in love with it straight away. Like her brother, she couldn’t understand why it was so complicated to invest in crypto. She instantly saw the potential to help millions of investors and traders worldwide by allowing them to access the entire blockchain ecosystem safely. That very day, Paul and Haydee decided to become business partners and build the best crypto platform the world has ever seen; Atani was born.
