Since joining Crypto.com as senior vice president of group strategy in February 2018, Eric has been instrumental in the conceptualization and implementation of the company’s major initiatives. He was promoted as COO in 2019 to help guide Crypto.com in the execution of growth-focused strategies.

During his stint, Crypto.com has expanded globally, winning regulatory approval over the past few months to offer crypto services in the UK, France, Italy, Cyprus, Dubai, South Korea and Singapore.

Prior to Crypto.com, Anziani spent two years at payment giant PayPal based in Singapore. Earlier in his career, which dates back to 2006, he worked as an analyst at Goldman Sachs and engagement manager at McKinsey & Company.

“Eric is a leader and strategic thinker who has helped guide the Company’s vision and solidified Crypto.com as a world-class platform built on security, compliance, and trust,” said Kris Marszalek, CEO of Crypto.com. “Eric’s expanded role will allow him full visibility of growth opportunities for the company and the ability to continue building and innovating to position Crypto.com for continued success.”

“The team at Crypto.com is mission-driven and embodies our values of ownership, humility, and clear thinking. It has been a privilege to grow the business together.” said Mr. Anziani. “We have a lot of work to do to responsibly advance the industry, and I am excited to continue to help lead this journey.”

Crypto.com, which claims 70 million users worldwide, regularly ranks in the top five global exchanges by spot volume and says its matching engine supports 2.7 million transactions per second with 50 microsecond core latency.

To boost its credibility, the exchange has successfully completed Type ll Service Organization Control (SOC 2) certification audits for security and data privacy practices. A vital industry-standard, SOC 2 compliance measures the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of customer data across solutions. The certification assures Crypto.com’s ability to not only implement critical security policies but also prove compliance over an extended period.
