Our story


Shortly before Christmas in 2015, Johannes, Richard and some like-minded friends met in Baar, Switzerland. It was here, for the first time, that they discussed how trusting relationships could be built in an increasingly decentralized world.

Six months later, DAO collapsed. Johannes and Richard knew it was time to establish a safer, more reliable decentralized platform for investors to connect crypto and fiat currencies. They recognized that true solutions would need to rely on P2P infrastructure and connecting pairs. The idea of CoreLedger was born.

In June 2016, Johannes and his team started working on several applications. By autumn, they had already successfully presented their first milestone in the Thomson Reuters incubation center. Just a couple months later, the first WARP was successfully matched.

CoreLedger was officially founded in Switzerland, in March 2017. Now with a dedicated team of 10+ specialists, it has become one of the go-to P2P infrastructure and DTL application providers for businesses of all sizes.
