Ray Youssef

CEO of Paxful

About

An immigrant from Egypt raised in the heart of New York, Ray has always had a passion for helping others. He dreamed of a world where finance was accessible to everyone and that idea manifested as Paxful. Ray is the co-founder and CEO of Paxful, the peer-to-peer finance platform with over seven million users. Ray and his co-founder Artur started Paxful in 2015 to help everyone have financial freedom through equal access to finance. Ray started out as an entrepreneur in 2001, where he founded a successful ringtone business and then had a series of start-ups before setting up Paxful. At Paxful, Ray is CEO and looks after growth, marketing, customer service and operations. Ray also founded the Built With Bitcoin Foundation that uses cryptocurrencies to create opportunity and thriving communities by providing access to clean water, quality education, and healthy food and a healthy environment via sustainable farming.
