About us

In 2017 we saw a rising opportunity. The cryptocurrency and blockchain space was blooming and ripe for adoption by the majority of our society. We set out to build a user-friendly exchange that connects social with trading, enabling people to effortlessly trade cryptocurrency and help them adopt the new digital economy.
We called our company and platform Blockport - an abbreviation for “Blockchain portal”, providing everyone access to the world of cryptocurrency and blockchain.

We think that developing technology should be an iterative process by which consumers, corporates, and governmental institutions are included to review the ethical acceptability, sustainability and societal desirability of the complete innovation process.

Community icon

With the creation of social-economic innovation, we believe that a knowledge sharing community is of the essence to trigger people's intrinsic interest, engagement and successfully facilitate the adoption of new technology.

Security icon

In this fast-changing, high-paced market it is of the utmost importance to remain a stable and secure factor. Awareness for security challenges is therefore a core value that runs through the veins of all our team members.


Collaborations are key to success.
Mission icon


The complexity of cryptocurrencies makes it difficult for beginners to start trading. Current platforms impose high barriers to entry, because they often lack usability, transparency and education. As a result, many people are discouraged to adopt cryptocurrencies.

Blockport aims to develop an end-to-end trading platform that addresses these problems by effectively combining proven technological, social and crypto economic concepts to create a completely new and effortless trading experience.

Vision icon


Blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies as its first offspring are starting to take form in our society. We believe that they are here to stay and will transform the way we interact with each other.

The Blockport team firmly believes that - despite the recent developments in the world of cryptocurrencies - there still exists an enormous knowledge gap between the high-tech blockchain world and the majority of our society. We think this can be improved.
