I’ve been looking at getting into the world of cryptocurrency and digital assets for some time now but didn’t have enough knowledge, experience or confidence in that area. That was until I was introduced to the MultiBank Group. I’m delighted to be working alongside them as I start out in cryptocurrency, and we’re all excited to see the new MultiBank.io platform go live in the coming weeks.
