What is CEX.IO?
Founded in 2013, London-based CEX.IO was initially a cloud mining provider. They owned the GHash.io mining pool, one of the largest mining pools in 2013. The company decided to stop its cloud mining services in early 2015 for two reasons - low prices of Bitcoin & they did not own any mining rigs. But it did not stop them from succeeding, albeit as a cryptocurrency exchange. GHash ceased to exist, but CEX.IO is still in existence today and has made quite a name for itself in the crypto world.
