As one of the largest cryptocurrency advertising networks in the world, the Cointraffic team knows a thing or two about marketing your crypto services through digital advertisements. But who are the people behind the shiny gold coin? Read on to find out.
It’s also where the Cointraffic team comes to work each day, bursting with ideas and ready to bring their very best to the table.
For those who may not know, Cointraffic is the premier global cryptocurrency advertising network for the crypto sector, helping businesses get their message out to engaged audiences through the placement of great banner and native advertisements on publisher sites.
Because of the work we do to bring ‘right-fit’ publishers and advertisers together, our ads have a higher likelihood of converting users than any other crypto advertising provider. To that end, you can think of us as the loudspeaker for the crypto community.
In fact, our knowledgeable and passionate team have helped raise over €800m for some of the markets biggest crypto companies in less than a year. How, you might ask?
Well, because each member of the Cointraffic team is a part of our overall strategic chain.
Each element of the chain plays an important role and with a missing link, the chain would be completely disconnected. As a team made up of individuals who live and breathe the crypto space, each brings an important skill set to their work, whilst also recognising their interdependence on other team members.
So, we like to think of our huge team, and the department they work in, as an unbreakable ring to our company’s chain. They’re all important pieces to the puzzle of how we run our business - and our success depends on everyone bringing their best self (and best mind) to our clients' projects.
In an exclusive first, the Cointraffic team is peeking out from behind their shiny Bitcoin and inviting you in to see who they are, and how they work...
Leadership team helms the ship
⌈Sergei Verbitski - CEO⌋ ⌈Juri Filatov - CTO⌋ ⌈Maksim Kalmykov -COO⌋ ⌈Anatoli Girenko - CFO⌋
“Our team has worked in the crypto space for 7 years! We still remember those early times - when Bitcoin only cost $100. Over this period we saw a growing market, yet a lack of good-quality marketing services. That is why we created Cointraffic and nowadays it’s not only an advertising network but a multi-channel solution, offering an array of end-to-end marketing services.” - Sergei Verbitski, CEO.
Sergei, Juri, Anatoli, and Maksim are responsible for Cointraffic’s overarching business strategy and company direction, as well as looking after the auxiliary businesses, CoinMedia, a full-service digital marketing agency.

They look after everything from team culture, profit and loss, digital partnerships and high-level business development. They inspire and educate their team members to always exceed the expectations of both advertisers and publishers, and encourage them to pursue external interests relating to the cryptocurrency and advertising industries so that they can further their knowledge.
