Origins

Just because it's finance doesn't mean it has to be difficult

100x is the result of the phenomenal success of BitMEX, the world’s leading cryptocurrency derivatives trading platform, which has pioneered cryptocurrency trading through relentless commitment to change, and continues to set benchmarks for innovation, liquidity, and security today.

Financial services play a critical role in our economy and daily lives, but have become cumbersome and expensive, and remain slow to transform in the digital era. We formed 100x to ignite a bolder ambition—reshape the modern digital financial system into one which is inclusive and empowering.

Join us, as we build a thriving cryptocurrency ecosystem of 100x Group companies, through strategic investments in emerging cryptocurrency technology, and create the future of digital financial services.

We are dedicating resources and grants where we believe we can generate the biggest impact - principally supporting the development of the cryptocurrency ecosystem.

Open Source Development

We believe it is the duty of corporations to help nourish the ecosystems in which they exist, giving back where possible to the projects from which they benefit.

100x Open Source Developer Grant programme provides grants to developers working on Bitcoin, NodeJS, Java or Kubernetes. We also provide certain smaller grants for producing related educational materials, workshops or the transcribing or translation of relevant technical content.
