To know more about the Comkort exchange and its special features Bitcoinist arranged an interview with the exchange Founder and CEO Viktoria Fialko:

We would like to know a little bit about the exchange history and how the idea of opening a crypto platform was born.

The idea to start a crypto exchange came quite unexpectedly. While we knew nothing about bitcoins until mid 2013, once we came across it, we instantly grew fascinated with it. After diving into the information available and exploring the available options, we – a group of three – decided it was a good time to start our own bitcoin related business. Comkort_interview_3_BitcoinistIn late 2013, crypto currencies were only starting to flourish, and there were quite few exchanges, all except for cryptsy, offering fiat trading with very limited number of alt-coins markets. Thus we decided to fill the niche.

What can you tell us about the Comkort exchange team and it’s Founders?

The team is growing very rapidly, and consists of financial advisors, security monitoring specialist, and some consultants. The founders are:
IGOR RYNKOVOY – More than 6 years in WEB development. Comkort idea, architecture and backend development.
DENIS LUKOV Front-end developer with passion for creating intuitive UX interfaces. Bitcoin enthusiast.
VIKTORIA FIALKO – Stern Business School alumni with Marketing and IB degree.. Bitcoin enthusiast and avid believer in cryptocurrency future. In Comkort Viktoria handles PR and Marketing

Can you enlighten us about the advantages and special features of the exchange?

Comkort is a NON-GENERIC exchange platform, written from scratch up, and that is what makes it differentiate from others by providing highly convenient user-tailored features. We concentrated our efforts on devising a functional user-friendly product that not only serves but also pleases – approaching that made us gain an excellent user feedback. Our key advantages are:
• Fine-tuned UI
• Multiple markets capacity
• Truly responsive support
• Quick response to market changes
We have launched in Beta, so we will offer a limited number of payment processors – okpay, egopay and payeer. Later 5-6 new aggregators will be connected to cover various geographic areas and offer extensive convenience. Also, we will be offering SEPA wire transfers in the foreseeable future.

Can you explain the exchange fee structure?

Fee structure is simple – Comkort withholds .02 percent from trader per transaction. No extra withdrawing fees. Additional costs are applied only when using payment processors.

Have you any agreements with any other company’s or major players?

Yes, we have signed an investment agreement with a major player in the Bitcoin ecosystem. However, at this point I cannot reveal the name of this top player. Comkort_interview_1_Bitcoinist

What are your future prospects for the exchange?

At the end of the year we will introduce a very interesting feature, made possible through partnering with our investor. We will announce it mid-December. Our goal is to gain substantial market share by offering traders great service on great interface. One of our core advantages is the personal approach with take on platform users. In an impersonal area like bitcoin, we believe it to be a serious plus.

Thanks for your cooperation Viktoria, and best of luck to the exchange.
