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.
David spent five years working in blockchain at The Royal Mint for the UK government. There he defined and created a digital gold currency in conjunction with CME Group, the world’s largest commodity derivative exchange.
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.
