Introduction about trade.io
Trade.io is a Swiss company that aims to revolutionize the Exchange Trading System using the a decentralized, traceable, transparent platform where users are able to trade through the blockchain.
The plan is to ensure users can trade both digital and physical assets such as cryptocurrencies, precious metals, oil and other commodities.
Team driving trade.io
Teamwork is fundamental to the success of any project, one more so as ambitious as Trade.io. This is because regardless of individual brilliance, only team work can amplify the results of each member so that the overall result is greater than the individual contributions made individually. In short, team work creates human synergy. And is often the difference between the success or failure of any given project.
I have checked through the trade.io chain of command, and here profile each of them, from its management arm, marketing, and operations to its research and technology desk.
Cryptocurrency, traditional finance — we have decades of expertise in both. By bringing multiple specialties together, our team leads the future of trading – and helps you make the most of it today.
Team work can only be achieved if there is great leadership in place, that one person or group that steers and glues everyone together so that individuals each know their role.
