Madrid, August 12, 2021 — Spanish platform Bit2Me, specialized in cryptocurrency solutions, has recently signed Raul Oliveira, former director of Kraken Europe, to join the company’s team of strategic advisors.
Oliveira has extensive experience in the cryptocurrency industry, having been an account manager at Kraken, one of the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchanges, founded in San Francisco and present in more than 140 markets. Oliveira was responsible for the Europe, Middle East and Africa areas for more than two years and was a key person in the company’s growth in these markets.
This is not the first time Oliveira has collaborated with Bit2Me, as he previously had the opportunity to do so alongside Leif Ferreira, Andrei Manuel and Pablo Casadio, founders and cornerstones of the company. From this experience, the new strategic advisor was able to learn about the company’s potential, “witnessing first-hand the growth that Bit2Me has had”, as well as admiring “not only the quality of the team and services but also the focus on the company’s mission and growth”. Moreover, Raul Oliveira, shares the company’s values, culture and vision and says he is excited to join Bit2Me, where he sees great potential, and states that he is “uniquely positioned to play a key role in the cryptocurrency industry.”
Oliveira has arrived at the Spanish exchange at a key moment for the company, which has just announced the launch of its own B2M token with which it intends to accelerate its international expansion. The company launched a private sale in which it raised an industry-record €2.5 million, a preliminary step to the public sale that will begin on September 6. Bit2Me’s current goal is to expand across Europe, and later to have a global reach, to position itself as the pioneering comprehensive crypto asset solution, covering everything from learning, dissemination, information, and latest news to crypto asset management and transaction.
Bit2Me is an industry-leading company in the cryptocurrency sector in Spain. Its Suite of services includes more than 20 solutions to buy, sell and manage virtual currencies and euros from a single place, safely and easily. The company has private customers, professionals, and companies in more than 100 countries and has managed operations worth more than €1 billion since being founded in 2015. In January this year, FORBES magazine selected Bit2Me as one of the companies in Spain that will drive change in 2021. Since its creation in 2015, the company has received several awards in the financial sector such as ‘Winners of the World‘, in the Visa-sponsored international competition; ‘Best Spanish startup 2015‘, by CaixaBank; or ‘Best Business Model‘ awarded by Deloitte. In addition, the European Commission has invited Bit2Me on multiple occasions to present and discuss Blockchain technology and bitcoin.
One of the first initiatives of the company after its birth was the creation of Bit2Me Academy, which trains more than 1.7 million students every year. Bit2Me Academy is currently the largest cryptocurrency training portal in Spanish, with more than 400 free articles, certified courses, and videos for those interested in learning about the birth, operation, and evolution of cryptocurrencies and the world of blockchain.
