After starting the company in his garage with just 1,000 euros in 2011, Slovenian-born Kodrič has built Bitstamp into one of the world’s top five cryptocurrency exchanges by trade volume. Boosted by a $10 million investment from hedge fund Pantera Capital, Luxembourg-based Bitstamp has also expanded to trade other digital assets such as Ethereum and XRP.
