There has been significant interest from investors, during the pre-registration phase and private launch, Ziglu has already raised £300,000.

With Ziglu 100% of customers’ total digital assets are insured against cyber-attacks, up to the value of £50,000, and fiat currencies are safeguarded in a segregated account. Ziglu was one of the first companies to be regulated by the 5th Money Laundering Directive for crypto assets.
Mark Hipperson, Ziglu Founder and Chief Executive Officer said: “It is important to us that our customers have a chance to be part of Ziglu, not just as account holders but as owners. We have had significant interest from professional investors but we want to give everyone the opportunity to come on our journey with us!”
Ziglu’s Chief Growth Officer, Yang Li, added: “Crowdfunding is a chance for us to thank the Ziglu community, experiencing our growth through ownership. With £10 as the minimum investment we want to make sure that this opportunity is open and accessible to everyone – the same approach we take to crypto.”
