History of CoinSpot
The business behind CoinSpot is Casey Block Services Pty Ltd with the ABN 19 619 574 186. Founded in December 2013 by Russell Wilson, CoinSpot was setup using Russel’s existing ABN which he had from IT consulting work, running CoinSpot as a sole trader with the trading name of CoinSpot. He then registered the PTY LTD in 2014 and planned to set up the company to own and operate the CoinSpot platform but continued to operate under the sole trader and eventually closed the PTY LTD in late 2016. In 2017 the company went through some huge changes with the increase in popularity for Cryptocurrency in Australia, growing his team substantially and finalising the company structure. Having had focus on strong security throughout has served them well as they are now known as the most secure and trusted Cryptocurrency exchange in Australia.
Is CoinSpot safe?
The business itself is registered using an Australian Business Number (ABN), it is also a member of the Australian Digital Commerce Assocation. Out of all of the exchanges available in Australia, CoinSpot has the most reputable background also complying with Australia’s new AML/CTF laws enforced by AUSTRAC. CoinSpot requires a strict verification process to protect its platform and its users. As many other exchanges do, CoinSpot uses the two-factor authentication (2FA) security method which requires you to enter a code on your phone each time you login to the platform. This makes your account much harder to access and is the preferred method for most users all around the world.
The platform offers a multi cryptocurrency wallet system with built-in trading features. This means that it provides a wallet for all of the Cryptocurrencies it has on offer so you can safely store them in escrow and move them whenever you need to. CoinSpot uses bank-level security in its system meaning there is a very low risk that the platform will be hacked. You are free to send your Cryptocurrencies to other platforms/devices whenever you want to with no restrictions.
