(000228.79-E000157.73NRLOSUC20V)[I was astounded to discover that 4 White guys, at least 3 of which are Afrikaans speaking South Africans, founded the biggest, and fastest growing crypto-currency company on earth. It was bought out by an American company last year and they are expecting that by 2030 it will have a staggering 1 billion customers. I can't offhand find Jewish links. Stranex is British, so maybe there are links there. The Afrikaans guys are:
Marcus Swanepoel, Carel van Wyk, and Pieter Heyns. There are also links with the Afrikaans guy who ran FNB but is now busy with the first crypto-bank in South Africa. Notice how creative the Whites are – as I have tried to explain to people.
Luno was founded in 2013 by Timothy Stranex, a former software engineer at Google, former investment banker Marcus Swanepoel, Carel van Wyk, and Pieter Heyns. In 2014, Luno completed an SGD $1m (USD $824,000) seed funding round, before raising USD $4m in 2015 through a Series A funding round led by Naspers, with additional funding by the Digital Currency Group and Venturra. 
In September 2017, Luno raised a further $9 million in order to introduce its bitcoin wallet, exchange and services in Europe, with additional funding by Rand Merchant Investment Holdings and the Digital Currency Group.
In 2018, Luno won the Tech5 award for the UK’s fastest-growing tech company. In 2019, it announced plans to significantly expand its operations in South Africa.
In October 2020, Luno launched its Bitcoin Savings Wallet.
In December 2020, Luno was one of a number of cryptocurrency platforms to run major promotional campaigns across London–a move that drew criticism from the Financial Conduct Authority. Luno was cited by the Advertising Standards Authority for the adverts and subsequently forced to remove the adverts.
In March 2021, Luno appointed former Monzo CFO Alwyn Jones as Chief Financial Officer.
Luno has operations in 40 countries including Indonesia, Australia, Malaysia, Nigeria, South Africa, Singapore and 34 other European countries.
Luno reached 4 million users in 2019 and 7 million in 2021.
