LGO Story

LGO is the leading institutional capital markets for digital assets. We allow our clients to buy, sell, lend and borrow cryptocurrencies, stable coins and tokenized assets.

We started with the idea that fairness and transparency in financial exchanges could be built with lines of codes. We gathered around this vision 9,000 people from 50 countries around the globe who participated in our ICO (Initial Coin Offering) in February 2018.

We believe that capital markets will transform through three technological levers:

  • Automation
    of all processes through strict but modifiable business logic embedded in code.
  • Full digitization
    of the whole chain of value transfer with new technologies like blockchain and tokenization.
  • Openness
    through the use of external APIs, that clients can use to automate their business or that third-party operators can use to build their own product.

We are accompanying the evolution of markets, starting with the largest tokenized asset class: cryptocurrencies and stablecoins.


LGO is a laureate of the French Tech 120, which gathers the 120 most promising companies in France.
