Swyftx – Our Vision

Find out who we are, what we stand for, and where we see our platform heading.

 

Our Principals

We built Swyftx for ourselves as much as we did our customers. We wanted to solve the many problems we faced as consumers, including a distinct lack of customer service, dated user interfaces, poor education practices & high fees. 12 months later, we launched, delivering better functionality, zero inflation, real spreads and simple low fees for all Australians to enjoy.

Our Mission

Traditional financial markets traders and investors have shown substantial interest in crypto and its newly developing “asset class”. Platforms and regulation are lacking the basics that are expected from existing providers like Peppersone, IG, CMC etc. Swyftx continues to build the most advanced platform in Australia while constantly pursuing regulation, insurance, leverage, AML, and an AFSL.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be the only crypto platform you need for trading and investing. The crypto industry is young and full of tech people who we believe don’t fully understand the core of what traditional people want. Swyftx is bringing together all your exchanges, charts, portfolio monitoring, leverage, funding, fiat and risk management into one simple integrated end-to-end solution.
