“When Mario Gomez Lozada and I founded QUOINE in 2014, we had a vision to grow this company into a world-leading provider of fintech services grounded in blockchain technology. Our journey has been incredible and although we still have much to achieve, we now have more than 190 staff working tirelessly in four countries to bring our customers the best possible products and services. Our achievements to date make me so proud. But the truth is, we are only just getting started. These four new hires will help us solidify our position as a global force in this sector.”
QUOINE added the new hires will play an integral role as the company prepares to launch several new products this year, including LIQUID, an all-inclusive cryptocurrency platform.
