At Annan Exchange, we are building a marketplace that empowers users. Our mission is to decentralize the currency rate and empower anyone who needs to send or receive money internationally. Annan Exchange is where we bring buyers and sellers together online.

Our unique peer-to-peer exchange empowers you to set your own currency rate, and for it to be matched with other customers exchanging the opposite currency. We host the marketplace, ensure that everything is recorded correctly and that all transactions happen quickly and smoothly. We hold the funds, meaning you can exchange safely with other customers around the world. If things are quiet, we make sure a match is available in the market for you so you can always get a great exchange rate.

We are the world’s first fully decentralised marketplace for currency exchange.

Design at Annan Exchange

One of the principles of our design team is to ‘shape the future’. A big part of the role of a product designer at Annan Exchange is to be a visionary—visualising and reinventing the future of currency transfer.

UX Designers at Annan Exchange take the dream and make it something everyone can relate to and rally behind. We start from the very early stages: finding the right problem to tackle, exploring ideas for how to solve it and then refining it into a coherent solution. Our product designers carry out research, brainstorming, sketching, prototyping, and collaboration with our engineers to ship great products. We are empathetic user advocates and respect our users’ opinions through interviews, usability testing, as well as wireframing, flowcharting, and journey mapping to show the different stages that customers go through as they come into contact with Annan Exchange.
