About Us

CoinJar is Australia’s longest-running cryptocurrency exchange. Since 2013, we’ve helped more than 600,000 people worldwide to buy, sell and spend billions of dollars in Bitcoin, Ethereum and dozens of other cryptocurrencies.

We make cryptocurrency accessible to everyone

Our mission has always been to make it as simple and secure as possible for people to invest in the cryptocurrency future. We’re not simply an exchange or a trading platform – we want to build best-in-class financial products that help people access and use Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in their everyday lives.

Products like our easy-to-use, market-leading iOS and Android app, or CoinJar Card, a fully featured Mastercard that lets you spend your crypto with Apple Pay and Google Pay, or CoinJar Bundles, offering instant portfolio diversification.

Cryptocurrency is here to stay. We’re giving people the tools they need to be part of the revolution.
