Founders David Janczewski and Adam Smith met when working together at The Royal Mint to digitise gold for the UK government. They quickly identified the need for stringent backup and recovery options.
With stories in the crypto space of fortunes lost to missing private keys and hacks, the need for better options was clear. They set out to solve this and bring safety to all people and businesses who hold and use cryptocurrency.
Coincover was founded in 2018 to make this a reality available to everyone.
Before founding Coincover, David spent five years working at The Royal Mint, a limited company wholly owned by HM Treasury. Whilst there, David worked alongside CME Group (the world’s largest commodity derivative exchange) to deliver a digitised gold offering utilising blockchain technology for traders and investors to trade, execute and settle gold.
Before co-founding Coincover Adam ran a successful cybersecurity consultancy with crypto, government, law enforcement and defence clients. At Coincover he focuses on our engineering for safety at scale.
