What We're Building

Founded in 2014 by Silicon Valley entrepreneurs Ron Hose and Runar Petursson, Coins is Southeast Asia’s leading mobile blockchain-enabled platform that enables anyone, including those without bank accounts, to easily access financial services directly from their phone. Using Coins, customers have access to a mobile wallet and services such as remittances, mobile air-time, bill payments, and online shopping at over 63,000 merchants who accept digital currency.

Our platform processes thousands of transactions a day and utilizes existing retail infrastructure (22,000+ locations) for deposits and withdrawals, cutting down on one of the biggest cost components of traditional retail banking. Operating in the Philippines and Thailand, Coins' mission is to increase financial inclusion of the 300+ million people in Southeast Asia who are currently out of reach for traditional banking.
