Title: UK Altcoin Exchange Project - Developers Wanted.
Post by: contemptx on June 02, 2017, 09:45:15 AM
OK, so a few years ago I started a project to create a UK Bitcoin exchange, however sadly at the time banks were not willing to have any part of it and then the mtgox meltdown happened taking almost all of my money with it...

Fast forward a few years and investments I still had in bitcoin and other altcoins have paid off again and im now financially able to get back into development.

Now obviously the space has changed, there are more established exchanges and services, however I still think there is space in the market for a UK Altcoin Exchange & Services.

I personally have around 40,000 to invest and although i would be open to other investors I'm more looking for a developer / team that would be willing to work with me on this project?

I Would prefer a UK based developer, however I have worked with many overseas developers in the past, including originally on this project although you would have to be a reconsidered / respected member here.

When contacting me, please tell me your background / previous developments.


I would also appreciate some feedback from members here, do you think that there is space for such development in todays market or would you invest in other areas?

Here are some screenshots of the old system.

Sounds promising. I think there'll always be room for exchanges as long as they are reliable and transparent.
People shouldn't keep all their funds locked down on one exchange. Spreading it reduces risk and having a transparent exchange helps users feel more comfortable.
Have you looked into the laws regarding running an exchange in the U.K.? I'm pretty sure you'll need a few licenses.

Previously the FCA stated that there was no regulation license needed, however this has probably changed since our last communication so I have asked my lawyer to re-open discussion with the FCA again so that we can clarify what we have to abide by.

I have both cash to invest and also php skills to invest. I am actively looking to invest in a crypto currency related business.

I will send you a PM.
