Safeguarding a сryptocurrency exchange

Some product development challenges can’t be handled by following the standard outsourcing playbook. Opening an offshore development center became a pinnacle of engineering initiatives for *instinctools’ another client, a trailblazer among European cryptocurrency exchanges in 2010s. The necessity to meet ironclad KYC/AML procedures and  security requirements set by regulators and banking partners as well as safeguard their intellectual property served as a woke for the client to think beyond other collaboration models. For more than five years, the center has been a unified hub of operational excellence, taking over all the core competencies, including engineering, product management, partner sales, and customer support.

What our clients say

Patrick Reich
Co-Founder & CEO

The expectations for the quality of the initial product were very high. I think *instinctools did a great job ensuring those expectations are met. We met the developers we were going to be working with and it quickly became apparent that they are very qualified and were able to deliver the vision that we had from our side for the product. They clearly told us what they were going to do, and if there were questions or problems along the way, they clarified them really quickly thanks to transparent communication.

Dimitri Popolov
Research Data and Systems Manager

We had a tight delivery deadline and *instinctools has been able to find another developer and assign him to our project from one day to another. And we’ve been able to successfully deliver this project. When the partner is good, things are just getting done. And that was the case with *instinctools.

Matti Vesterinen
Solution Development Manager

The quality has been good. It’s been on the expected level: things come on time, we have a good visibility on the things that *instinctools developers are doing and performing for us, communication is good. Wherever we see that we need some more exra resources, we have found *instinctools to be a good partner in helping us out on those areas.

Jeanine Shepstone
Senior Technical Writer

Instinctools is good at understanding the technical issues – once an issue is outlined, they do not need repeated explanation. They also do not simply accept a proposed solution, but they think about it and propose a better solution. I was really impressed by the custom interface they built for us – we outlined the requirements, and they implemented them in a user-friendly way that makes the interface a pleasure to use.
