Easy Crypto was founded in 2017 by brother-sister duo Alan and Janine Grainger. They were fed up with how difficult it was to buy crypto in New Zealand and did something about it! Since then, Easy Crypto has become a fast, easy, and safe way to buy and sell cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, and more than 150 cryptocurrencies.

Our founders

Janine is a seasoned professional with a background in finance and economics and has experience with strategy, banking, and management consulting across some of NZ's biggest brands.

Alan oversees Easy Crypto's product development and delivery. He manages all aspects of internal operations, including website development, automation, back-end processing, security, and controls.

Since then, Andrew has launched in Australia, Lloyd in South Africa, and other countries are just on the horizon!

Our team is truly global, we have 80+ staff from almost every continent on the planet!

What makes us different from other crypto services?

Unlike an international cryptocurrency exchange, Easy Crypto is a retailer or broker. We do all the technical work for you to make it as easy as possible for you to buy and sell crypto.

Being a broker with a mission to bring cryptocurrency to the masses for the best prices possible with maximum ease, we actively strive towards differentiating ourselves from being an exchange.

The result of this is a much more streamlined process, however, this is not the only benefit to buying locally with Easy Crypto.

  • We don't store nor have access to your funds, we send all crypto directly to users' privately held cryptocurrency wallets.

  • Our verifications typically processed rapidly if you use the automatic option, whereas international exchanges can take hours or days.

  • We are fully compliant with local laws, which include being registered with a dispute resolution scheme that can help out if you have any issues.

  • We have an inbuilt portfolio tracker that automatically adds in all your Easy Crypto trades for accurate simplified tracking.

  • We have a highly active customer support team, who you can contact by email or live chat. This is something that sets us apart from international or large exchanges, as it can take hours or days to get a response for a small issue, whereas our responses are rapid.

Easy Crypto Values

Easy Crypto aims to take the crypto revolution global so that everyone has access to financial freedom and equality. We pride ourselves on a set of 5 values, coming together as a group of collaborative hustlers.

  1. Make the path - There is always a way! We value creativity, innovation, and initiative in problem-solving to create a path to solve our challenges.

  2. Got your back - We're there for each other and our customers! We believe in an organisation that upholds integrity and trust amongst ourselves, as well as our business partners and customers.

  3. Make it more easy! Simplifying and streamlining the user experience is part of our bigger goal for the adoption of cryptocurrencies worldwide.

  4. Level up - Be curious, learn, innovate and improve. Things in the crypto space move fast, we aim to move even faster.

  5. Enjoy the ride - make it a lol-lercoaster. The crypto industry is at the very cutting edge of technology. New developments, emerging technologies, and groundbreaking applications are all a part of the cryptocurrency experience.
