The History of AltMarket is the History of Cryptocurrency
We are cryptocurrency.
Deeply rooted in the cryptocurrency community, the founders of AltMarket are those who, with the help of countless others, constructed the basic market economics which operates the industry.
As a result, our team understands the markets better than anyone else on the planet and enjoys the global reputation to prove it. Others might claim to know this industry, but AltMarket is cryptocurrency.
March of the Altcoins
The innnovation of cryptocurrency technology leads to a wave of experimentation, collaboration, innovation, and research. Thousands of "alternative coins," or simply "altcoins," invade the markets as the product of these efforts, many of them launched by our founders.
The First Attempt
The first attempt at launching AltMarket ended in a protracted pause as the lack of regulatory guidance made serving the entertainment industry impossible.
The Right Moment
The founders of AltMarket begin to formulate a long term strategy to capitalize on overall sentiment for cryptocurrencies as part of the operational plan. Public relations masters AMW Group are called to consult.
The current incarnation of AltMarket is born and built to last. With a firm grasp on a market strategy, the team officially forms the company.
The AltMarket team travels to Washington DC and successfully lobbies for commodity status of cryptocurrencies, including having a special hearing called on the matter by the House Committee on Agriculture. Co-Founder Bryce Weiner became the first cryptocurrency developer to meet face-to-face with the Securities Exchange Commission to discuss cryptocurrencies and regulation.
Launching a cryptocurrency for the estate of Russel "Ol' Dirty Bastard" Jones, AltMarket demonstrates the execution and monetization of a branded cryptocurrency as a commodity.
Five years since the first attempt, trading begins on the AltMarket platform.
“The most valuable commodity in this industry is trust. The second most valuable is a new idea.”
