The exchange was created by the The Rock Trading Ltd. The company is based in Malta, with branch offices in Italy and was initially a Virtual Insurance Company in Second Life. The firm was founded by Andrea Medri (CFO) and Davide Barbieri (CTO), two entrepreneurs well-known in the Italian Bitcoin community. Most of their customers are Europeans, and Italy is the most frequent country of origin.


The Rock Trading is more of a boutique exchange with its unique features and mostly Italian and European users. It offers a user-friendly, basic platform where trading and exchange can be carried out with ease and speed. Best both for beginners and expert traders, especially users with a Green Address wallet. Security seems good, fees are competitive, but customer support could be better.
