Phemex's founders felt that something was missing in the cryptocurrency industry. As both traders and professional investors, they realized that crypto companies lacked in professionalism, trust, and customer support. This is why Phemex was created with the goal of becoming a dependable company that constantly gives back to its users and its community. We work together every day to create a platform that allows people to make transactions with efficiency, simplicity, and more importantly, trust.
