Welcome to People-Powered Money

Paxful is changing the world of finance. In just five years, we’ve become one of the leading peer-to-peer bitcoin marketplaces used by millions around the world. And we’re just getting started.

Our Founders

Paxful started with a simple mission: to empower the forgotten four billion unbanked and underbanked, so they have control of their money in a way they've never had before.

Ray Youssef

Ray Youssef, CEO

An immigrant from Egypt raised in the heart of New York, Ray has always had a passion for helping others. He dreamed of a world where finance was accessible to everyone and that idea manifested as Paxful.

Our Values

We live and work by three simple values to guide us on our mammoth quest.

Be a Hero

At Paxful, we use superhuman efforts to get the job done. We work around the clock to provide our users with what they’ve been dreaming of. We’re making the impossible a reality to change the lives of billions around the world.

Build for People

When we make decisions at Paxful, we think about people—not profits. We’re going to the places the rest of the world has ignored and forgotten. We’re helping families to thrive, building schools, and enabling our users to become their own boss.

Stay Connected to the Streets

We listen to our community 24/7 at Paxful. We’re not in skyscrapers with “the suits”—we’re on the streets with the people. We’re always talking with our users, asking them for their feedback, and creating something even better.

Our Product

Paxful is changing the way the world moves money and embraces crypto - allowing transfers with anyone, anywhere, at any time.

No bank account? No problem. We have over 300 payment methods to choose from, making it easy for you to move your money the way you like.

People-Powered Technology

Paxful is entirely peer-to-peer, which means our users trade with real people—the way bitcoin was intended to be used.

Free Crypto Wallet

Reliable, easy-to-use, and doesn’t cost you a penny. Our digital wallet gives everyone a safe place to store their wealth — no matter who you are or where you’re from.


Safety and security are the most important factors when it comes to your money. All trades on Paxful are protected by our secure escrow service to guarantee peace of mind.


At Paxful, we believe Bitcoin is the future and a vehicle for change. Built with Bitcoin is our initiative to provide opportunities, improve lives, and make the world a better place for communities that need it the most, using Bitcoin.

The goal? To build 100 schools, water facilities, and entrepreneurial incubators funded entirely by Bitcoin. We’re currently building our fourth school and only have 96 more to go!

Built with Bitcoin also helped with COVID-19 relief in Africa—with generous contributions from our users and friends we were able to provide food, hand sanitisers, and other protective equipment to those in need.
