What we do

Founded in the Swiss Crypto Valley in 2017, SMART VALOR was one of the first companies to embrace tokenization and Decentralized Finance (DeFi). Acknowledged by Forbes as one of Europe's 10 Most Exciting Technology SMEs, SMART VALOR today is leading the way with its fully compliant cryptocurrency exchange and marketplace for digital assets. It is supported by leading Venture Capital funds and a global community of VALOR stakeholders.

Our journey has begun with establishing a safe and fully compliant crypto-fiat exchange - a foundational layer for our infrastructure. On top of this infrastructure, we are building out a decentralized marketplace for NFTs, derivatives and security tokens.

The Big Idea

Today, the digital and real worlds exist separate from each other. Blockchain technology enables the tokenization of real assets, connecting these worlds. The big idea we are working on is to build a bridge between the digital and real worlds making assets digital and liquid, and thus democratizing access to investments.
