WHAT IS BUX?

BUX is a trading app that brings the fun back into finance. With BUX you can discover the excitement of the stock exchange even if you don’t have tonnes of trading experience or wads of cash to spend. In short: BUX makes stock trading accessible to everybody. Join the Big Boys!

We'd like to see BUX as a 'Casual Trading App' that bridges the gap between casual gaming apps, such as Angry Birds or Candy Crush, and traditional trading platforms. But mind you, BUX's not merely a game: though users can start for free trading with funBUX, the real boys play with real money: seriousBUX.

WHY DID WE START BUX?

We think the stock market is the biggest and best game in the world. A game that shouldn’t only be accessible for the big boys bankers; everyone should be able to play along. That’s why we’ve developed an app that makes trading stocks extremely accessible, fun, educational and exciting. What’s more: in the past investing was something your dad did, but nowadays we see that more and more people are becoming interested in all the new disruptive technology companies that are listed on the stock exchange. At BUX, we want to give everyone the chance to go out and discover the world by playfully investing in it. Let's rock the world of finance.

WHO IS BEHIND BUX?

Four Dutch entrepreneurs founded BUX: Egbert Pronk, Nick Bortot, Robbert Bos, and Joost van de Wijgerd.

BinckBank, listed on the Euronext stock exchange, is ranked in the top five online brokers in Europe, with a market capitalization in 2013 of $574 million.
