Blum founders 

Gleb Kostarev, a former Binance vice president, is Blum’s co-founder and CEO. Kostarev resigned from Binance the giant Crypto exchange in September last year as the exchange planned its exit from Russian markets. He acted as Binance’s head of Asia and oversaw more than 60 markets including APAC, Eastern Europe, and Turkey since 2018.

Vladimir Smerkis, the ex-general manager for Binance Russia and CIS, is also a Blum official. Smerkis left Binance the same week as Kostarev and now serves as Blum’s chief marketing officer and co-founder.

Vladimir Maslyakov, CTO of Thekey. space, is also a part of the project according to CEO Kostarev.

The Blum project was founded by these ex-Binance executives who left Binance to start their own ventures. The founders envisioned a crypto trading app that merges Centralized exchange and Decentralized exchange facilities for a new trading experience. The app launched to over 50,000 signups in its first 48 hours.
