CoinBurp: Meet the Team

4 min readJun 22, 2021

CoinBurp was created by Pete (CEO), Bipin (COO), Tom (CDO) and Richard (CLO) back in 2018. Though it all started 7 years ago, when Pete started his first cryptocurrency business as a Bitcoin broker on P2P platforms. Starting with just £1,000, Pete bought and sold Bitcoin on and quickly grew this business from nothing to one turning over £100M by 2017. It was at this point when Pete and Bipin decided they wanted to create a platform that anyone could use to buy crypto without the need for any prior technical experience. So, in the summer of 2018, they partnered with Tom and Richard, and was born. Since then, it has grown to be the #1 ranked crypto exchange on TrustPilot UK and has expanded massively since, now boasting more than 35 employees!

There are a lot of exciting things on the way for CoinBurp this year and it’s all thanks to the incredible team, but who are they? Let’s take a peek behind the curtain:
