“The crypto asset market in Indonesia has shown tremendous growth over the past year, we see this positive growth driven by several factors such as clearer regulations, as well as an increase in public knowledge of crypto assets.

 

To make it easier for crypto users in Indonesia, we built Pintu for new crypto asset investors as well as experienced investors. We believe that the adoption of crypto assets in Indonesia is only in its early stages, and educating the public is of paramount importance to ensure this growth proceeds in a healthy way,”

said Jeth Soetoyo, Founder and CEO of PINTU.
