PayRue is a London based cryptocurrency wallet and exchange provider. PayRue was founded by Mikael Olofsson and Ingemar Svensson who have more than 20 years’ experience in financial services and financial technology firms in both London and New York such as ICAP, Barclays and Bank of America.
PayRue was founded in 2018 to support the growth and mass adoption of cryptocurrencies by offering an application that allows people to exchange, hold and transfer cryptocurrency in a user-friendly way supported with competitive commission and high security.
Our application is available all over the world through the Apple Store, Google Play Store and as a Web application.
PayRue is offering services that will support the growth for cryptocurrency as a new emerging asset class. With already built and working technology and growing user base we feel we are well positioned to further expand our user base whilst adding on new services and cryptocurrencies.
PayRue is very excited about the future and is working on numerous applications, services and blockchains aiming to offer the best exchange services, customer execution and security. We aim to become a global financial service provider of cryptocurrencies and fiat services.
In the very near future PayRue plans to include adding fiat to crypto services, debit cards and insurance.
Having been active in the cryptocurrency world for a long time, both personally and as a business, we found a lot of things were complicated and painful, especially early on. Decentralization and user control sounded like great ideas, but as a novice user, the pain of managing keys and installing old fashioned desktop applications felt backward.
We started to imagine an app which could take the pain away and manage some of the complexity yet still give us full access to this new decentralized world. An app that would be simple to use and that could offer more than just a wallet.
So we came up with PayRue - an ecosystem and a suite of functionality and services which is designed to cover the needs of users at each level.
