Crypto.com, the rising star?

Crypto.com is one of the new big players in the crypto industry. They started with a debit card and a mobile wallet application. Meanwhile, crypto.com offers a huge amount of different services, from a cryptocurrency exchange to a smart metal debit card with various rewards.

From Monaco to Crypto.com

In June 2016 the company, Monaco Technologies GmbH was founded by Kris Marszalek. One year later, the MCO token sale began and was successfully completed. A total of 27.7 million USD was raised.  In October 2017 the MCO Visa Card Program went live, shortly after the mobile application got released.

In July 2018, after a successful domain purchase, Monaco was rebranded to Crypto.com. The original content of the domain crypto.com was related to cryptography and the domain owner never intended to sell it, especially not to a cryptocurrency project. An unknown sum seemed to have changed his mind. According to estimates, the domain was acquired for 12 million dollars. Later that year a new token called Crypto.com Chain (CRO) was announced. CRO got partly distributed via an airdrop to MCO holders.
