Who are we
We are a Slovak / European company that makes investments in cryptocurrencies simple, safe and available to everyone.
Are you regulated in any way?
The National Bank of Slovakia does not currently regulate cryptocurrency related services. As soon as the National Bank of Slovakia sets the conditions for issuing licences to cryptocurrency companies, Fumbi will apply for such licence.
Do you have a license?
Fumbi holds the government issued Trade License to provide cryptocurrency brokerage and custody services in line with the AML regulations. This license is not issued by the National Bank of Slovakia and does not imply financial regulation.
What do you offer?
We offer a conservative strategy on how to safely invest in cryptocurrencies. Our dynamic portfolio, managed by the Fumbi algorithm, can accurately copy the movements of the entire cryptocurrency market, regardless of the movements of individual cryptocurrencies.
Who can invest with you?
A natural person interested in cryptocurrencies as an investment instrument with the highest growth potential.
How is my deposit protected?
Your deposit will be immediately exchanged for cryptocurrencies, which are a direct property of the investor and do not appear on Fumbi's balance sheet. The cryptocurrencies are then stored in the most secure storage system on the market - the Ledger Vault. This system is insured against hacker attacks. Fumbi is also regularly audited by an independent company, SGS Slovakia. The aim of the audit is to compare the balances of all cryptocurrencies in client wallets with the current values stated on blockchains. Fumbi is the first company investing in cryptocurrencies to receive this type of certificate.
What do I need to do make an investment?
All you have to do to make your first deposit is to register. The subsequent process is automatic and you just follow your investment development.
Do I need any confirmation?
No confirmation or permission is required to invest in cryptocurrencies.
Why should I invest?
We offer the opportunity to invest in the fastest growing and developing area in the investment arena.
What is expected of me?
Whether you decide to invest, and if so when and how much, is always up to you. You can make a single deposit, or you can make repeated deposits. Regular smaller monthly deposits are a smart strategy when investing. It reduces the risk of ill-timed purchases when prices and the market are relatively high. The growth potential of the cryptocurrency market is incomparable. It also carries high risk, so it is reasonable to level this risk by averaging the costs.
Why long-term investment?
The market has proven us right that this is a more beneficial form of investment. Short-term and speculative investing is often associated with loss.
How long do I have to keep investing?
The time span for holding the cryptocurrencies purchased is entirely up to you. You can suspend or resume your investing activity at any time. However, we recommend investing over a period of 2 or more years. When investing for more than 2 years, you do not pay a profit fee.
When is the right time to invest?
The cryptocurrencies are still in their infancy, so they have a huge growth potential. The more they are used, the more the cryptocurrency market will grow, and so will your investments you made at the beginning of this development.
What is the value of an investment worth making?
The cryptocurrency market is still relatively volatile. It is, therefore, advisable to invest only an amount you will not be short of when the market drops. With us, you can start investing with as little as 50 €.
Is it better to make a larger lump-sum deposit or to deposit lower amounts several times?
Repeated smaller monthly deposits is a smart strategy when investing. It reduces the risk of ill-timed purchases when prices and the market are relatively high. The growth potential of the cryptocurrency market is incomparable. It also carries high risk, so it is reasonable to level this risk by averaging the costs.
How much can I make?
The area of investing in cryptocurrencies is the area with the highest yield potential. However, profit cannot be guaranteed, as market developments cannot be predicted or influenced. Your return depends on the size of the cryptocurrency market at the time of your deposit and its further development. If the market grows, so will your investment.
What will my profit be?
Profit cannot be guaranteed, as it is not in our power to influence the market. Development of the investment depends on the development of the cryptocurrency market.
What does the amount of profit depend on?
The amount of profit depends solely on the market development. If the cryptocurrency prices rise, so will your investment, and vice versa.
How long will it take to make the desired profit?
In terms of making a profit, it is not possible to talk about a specific period. The market can grow at any time, e.g. by 20%, even over a single day. It can also fall during the day.
