“Creating a world where everyone has financial freedom.”
CEO & Founder
Financial freedom should be a basic human right. At Elbaite, our goal is to contribute to a world where everyone has secure access to financial services through blockchain innovation and community engagement.
Our Crypto Journey
Elbaite was founded in 2017 in Melbourne, after the founders became victims to several crypto exchange hacks. To prevent it happening to anyone else, they created the Elbaite non-custodial cryptocurrency exchange model, where the exchange does not hold crypto at any point in the transaction process, creating a secure, yet user-friendly service.
Since then Elbaite has become an integral part of the Australian crypto community, and have worked with organisations including Women in Blockchain and the RMIT blockchain hub.
Elbaite is a diverse team of passionate crypto nerds who are experts in Blockchain and strive to push the industry forward by providing a trading platform built for traders, and not our company's back pockets
Our mission is to provide a secure cryptocurrency exchange service that accelerates the adoption of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology through our unique self-custody trading model, blockchain innovation, and educational content.
Our company name Elbaite comes from the only gemstone found in every colour of the spectrum. Gemstones have historically been used as forms of currency, and similar to gemstones, cryptocurrency comes in various ‘colours’.
This is a representation of our commitment to creating a culture of inclusivity within the blockchain community, by starting with our community and workplace.
We have been recognised as the 2022 Gender and Diversity Leader of the Year at the Blockchain Australia Annual Awards 'Blockies'.
