About us

We believe Digital Asset based Financial Services are at just 5% of their market market potential.
We’re launching the next 95%.

The digital asset financial services world is currently estimated at $60B. That figure is expected to rise and expand to over 580 million people, or 7+% of the world population by 2022 (Deloitte, 2019). Traditional banks aren’t supporting most digital assets, yet. This presents a once in a generation opportunity for new entrants to enter this segment. Baanx has the ambition to be that leading, global infrastructure provider.

We build services with you, not just for you, we are partners for life to create huge value and success both disrupting and improving the world of financial services in which we operate together.

We are built on DLT, Blockchain, automation and AI - more efficient, faster and better than traditional fintech and banking. Our belief in Digital Assets and the technology behind them led us to this point; creating the bridge between the old and the new and enabling a new breed of Fintech platforms created with trust and the global market in mind.

Our Story

In 2014 our Founders were working across Lending, Fintech and leading Banking companies - both listed and private - with great success. However we were always looking for something which could offer improvements to the traditional fintech and banking sector - it was here our passion in the opportunities offered by automation, blockchain, AI and digital assets originated.

In 2018, after successful careers across UBS, Mastercard, Gemalto, Commerzbank amongst others, we realised the first step in our dream - to start a Digital Asset friendly B2B2C Fintech platform - offering key services across acquiring, issuing, remittance and digital assets within mobile apps and through APIs to the open market.

Since then the journey has been immense - with 3 rounds of funding so far, providing total investment of a large 8 figure amount already - including Tezos, also a major global FX provider, and a West European government.

The future of Baanx is massive - as we provide the infrastructure to turn Fintechs, Communities, Telecoms, Exchanges, Wallet providers and market leaders into Digital Asset friendly Fintechs using our infrastructure - whether this be by API or by launching white label mobile apps.

Join us today on this exciting journey .... how can our vision work for you?

Built with trust

Tezos, the market leading blockchain banking technology provider, is a part-owner of Baanx Group, along with a major FX Bank, a Consumer Lending firm, as well as VC’s, Family Offices, and a collection of Fintech entrepreneurs.

This is testament to the rapid growth and compelling opportunity the Baanx platform offers to assist the rapid growth of businesses in this space.

The Baanx story continues and by 2022 we expect to turn 10 customers into 50 and be rapidly expanding further into new markets, powering some of the Digital Asset and Fintech space’s most well known and reputable brands and companies.
