Top 10 Reasons Why Paxful is the best Startup to work With

Reason 1 – Change the World

Every Single day you will make a Real Difference in the world to the people who need it most.

Paxful is making Bitcoin work for the underbanked peoples of the world and making a real difference in the EVERYDAY LIVES OR NORMAL PEOPLE. Kinda like how we geeks use Google, is how a single mother in Georgia or Nigeria or Mumbai can use her Paxful wallet to preserve the value of their money and secure their income to feed their children. These folks have a real option now thanks to Bitcoin and Paxful where as before they had nothing. There are three billion lives you can help change!

Reason 2 – Help the Little Guy

We had no idea how many people don’t have bank accounts until they came to us desperate for help as the BackPage Effect showed all of us. That’s our CEO in the video doing the phone support himself. There are 2.5 billion people on earth who need financial services and we are the guys actually listening to them and building for them.

The above video is two years old and now we are doing even more and making a real difference in the developing world! Africa and India are our 2nd and third biggest markets.

Reason 3 – Work with the Best

Are you a genius? Great! We like smart folks but above all we value leadership. There are plenty of super smart folks in tech but at Paxful you’ll find leaders, not Bosses, or managers but people who lead by example and expect the best from themselves. Leadership means expecting the best from yourself and nurturing others to lead as well. We are really good at that because it is what we value most. If you want dudes with perfect SAT scores who can solve a Rubik’s cube in a minute flat we’re not the guys but if you want to learn how to be a better leader and work with those who expect the very best from themselves then we are the best!

Reason 4 – The Hottest Tech

Ok, so we use PHP for our web dev not exactly hot but… we are also Blockchain based and release open source blockchain software. Everything you do here code wise will at some point interact with Blockchain technology. We’re among the top 5 bitcoin wallet of the world.

Reason 5 – Solve the Biggest Problems

Everything we do we think about the mainstream market. No idea is too challenging. We want to solve the biggest problems on the internet. Every start an ecommerce site?

You game?

Reason 6 – Freedom Bro!

Who We Are

Paxful, Inc. is a US startup founded in New York City in 2015 by two guys; Ray and Artur. We had to leave New York because a regulation passed in NY state that made it impossible for Bitcoin startups to innovate there. So We moved our HQ to Tallinn, Estonia, known for some of the liveliest nightlife in Europe and the very best dairy products.

Why We Do It

To help the little guy.
