How Finoa came to life

Finoa was born as an idea in Madrid in 2018 when crypto enthusiasts Chris and Henrik realized there was a lack of sophisticated services which would empower the crypto ecosystem to evolve and institutions to participate.

Two years later, the company became part of Berlin's burgeoning cryptocurrency scene and began attracting talent from top employers, such as Google, Klarna, Deutsche Telekom, and many more.

In 2022, the company introduced its first subsidiary, Finoa Consensus Services (FCS). FCS develops blockchain infrastructure and distributed validator technology that secures decentralized networks and maximizes institutional investors’ capital efficiency.

Institutions care about the products and services they use and the counterparties they interact with. Finoa was built with the purpose to let the ecosystem thrive while providing institutions with a trusted partner that can respond to their complex regulatory and security needs.
