Coins.ph is a financial services platform founded in 2014 by Silicon Valley entrepreneurs Ron Hose and Runar Petursson in Metro Manila, Philippines.[2]

In May 2017, Coins.ph raised $5 million in series A extension led by Naspers Ventures.[3]

The cryptocurrency company is among the few in the world to be duly authorized by a state monetary body in its location, in this case, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas.[4]

Coins.ph has a Thai counterpart as well, coins.co.th, operating in the same manner, but for the Thai market.[5]

Wallets for Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum and the Philippine Peso are available, with the altcoins being a recent addition.[1]
