Crypto.com Exchange Goes Live 

Boosting its presence in the world's largest economy, Crypto.com has begun rolling out its exchange to waitlisted users in the US. 

The announcement article published on March 15 indicates that the platform will be given preference to a select group of institutional investors with an expansion expected in the near future. As per the article, the platform supports seamless USD transfers via integrations with Silvergate and Circle. The platform also offers exclusive forums led by global thought leaders to keep users up to date on the latest trends. Additionally, the Crypto.com exchange allows VIP members access to exclusive events, rewards, and market insights.

Crypto.com continues to venture into the United States from acquisitions to sponsorships. According to an article by Osato Avan-Nomayo from the Block, Crypto.com recently acquired two US-based derivatives platforms for $216 million, which will enable it to offer derivatives and futures to its American clients. 

However, despite all these developments, Crypto.com witnessed a security breach that compromised 400 accounts, as CEO Kris Marszalek confirmed in an interview with Bloomberg.

What is Crypto.com

Crypto.com is a Singapore-based cryptocurrency exchange. Currently, their app has 10 million users and 4,000 employees. Bobby Bao, Gary Or, Kris Marszalek, and Rafael Melo founded the company as "Monaco" in 2016. 

Following the purchase of a domain owned by cryptography researcher and professor Matt Blaze, the company was renamed Crypto.com in 2018. The domain was valued at between $5 and $10 million by domain sellers.

Foris DAX Asia, a Singapore-based subsidiary of Foris DAX MT (Malta) Limited, operates Crypto.com. Crypto.com has notable sponsorship agreements with Formula One, Serie A, the UFC, Paris Saint-Germain Football Club, the Philadelphia 76ers, the Montreal Canadiens, and Water.org. 

Water.org's collaboration included signing its co-founder, actor Matt Damon, as Crypto.com's brand ambassador. The vision of Crypto.com is to accelerate the world's transition to cryptocurrency by putting cryptocurrency in every wallet.
