Phemex founders felt like something in the cryptocurrency industry was missing. As both traders and professional investors, we realized that professionalism, trust, and customer's orientated crypto companies were missing from the crypto world. That is why every day we work with the goal of creating a trustworthy company that can give back to its users and society. We work together every day to create a platform that allows users to transact with efficiency, simplicity and more importantly, trust.
Pheme (Fama), in Greek mythology, the personification of fame and the public voice, and MEX refers to any mercantile exchange. The name was chosen to highlight our vision and dedication to become the most trustworthy trading platform.
The promise of blockchain to empower individuals without access to traditional finance requires exchanges to provide these services. We are building the world's most trustworthy cryptocurrency derivatives exchange, covering contracts backed not only by crypto assets, but also by traditional financial products, such as stock indexes, interest rates, foreign exchange, agricultural commodities, metals and energy, for our users to trade easily and with trust. We are devoted to simplify financial products and lower the entry barrier for newcomers through a “User Oriented” approach, so to build a bridge between crypto and traditional finance.
Led by over 8 former Morgan Stanley Executives, Phemex is building the worlds most trustworthy cryptocurrency derivatives trading platform. Phemex leverages a “User Oriented” approach to develop far more powerful features than any existing exchange for traders to easily buy & sell contracts with trust.
Our development team is directly available on social media to gather any feedback, comment or request from our community. We believe having a “User Oriented” approach is the best way to build a next generation trading platform.
We allow the trading of crypto contracts backed not only by crypto assets, but also by traditional financial products, such as stock indexes, interest rates, FOREX, commodities, metals, energy, and more.
We built our own Hierarchical Deterministic Cold Wallet System, which assigns an independent deposit address to each user, so that all assets are kept in cold wallets. Bitcoin collection and transfer are all conducted via offline signature with strict human scrutiny.
