Cinkciarz.pl, a company belonging to Conotoxia Holding, throughout its business activity, has been recognized by juries of prestigious competitions and national media. The company has been appreciated for the high quality, functionality and innovation of its services. The fintech's analysts have demonstrated excellent skills in predicting currency exchange rates and achieved extraordinary results in the Bloomberg rankings. To celebrate the 10th anniversary, we would like to recall the most valuable achievements of the company.
"Thousands of satisfied customers and more than two million downloads of the Currency Exchange mobile app are our most valuable reward and give the best evidence of our services. Nevertheless, the awards in various rankings and competitions, which started to appear almost from the very beginning of our activity, also encouraged us and raised the bar higher and higher", says Piotr Kicinski, Vice-President of Cinkciarz.pl.
The company entered the market in mid-November 2010 with the online currency exchange service. Less than a year later, Cinkciarz.pl received the Laurels from Clients in the Discovery of the Year 2011 category. A group of independent experts appreciated fintech for its contribution to the development of the online currency market.
Then, 12 months had passed. Cinkciarz.pl became a finalist of the Polish Good Design competition, organized by the Institute of Industrial Design. The company was also awarded the Symbol for Online Currency Exchange 2012 by "Monitor Rynkowy" newspaper. In turn, the editors of Economy Life Today recommended the company's services to the title Quality of the Year 2012.
In 2013, the team of Cinkciarz.pl analysts was awarded for the first time in the international arena, winning the Bloomberg ranking in forecasting the EUR/PLN exchange rate changes. In 2014, Cinkciarz.pl debuted on the List of 500 of "Rzeczpospolita" daily and the List of 200 of "Wprost" weekly, taking places at the top of the lists of the largest companies in Poland.
Founder of Cinkciarz.pl as The Best Manager and his company with the statue of The Player of the Year
Outstanding laurels were reached upon our five years of activity. First, Marcin Pioro, the president and founder of Cinkciarz.pl, gained the title of Best Manager 2015 according to Bloomberg Businessweek Poland.
Leading companies operating in Poland were then surveyed to identify the most effective among themselves, awarding Marcin Pioro for his professional success, perseverance and innovation.
Shortly afterwards, the editorial team of "Forbes", looking ahead, awarded the Cinkciarz.pl the title of Player of the Year 2016 in the Finances category. In this opinion-forming magazine's ranking, the aim was to indicate companies which would take over the roles of leaders of particular industries in the following year.
Cinkciarz.pl has fulfilled the above-mentioned task, consistently taking higher and higher positions in rankings of the biggest companies in Poland. In 2016 and 2017 it reached the top dozens of "Rzeczpospolita" and "Wprost" lists. At the same time, the authors of the studies stressed that Cinkciarz.pl was the highest-ranked private company, giving way in the rankings only to companies with State Treasury shareholding.
Cinkciarz.pl among the Most Valuable Polish Brands, and Marcin Pioro on the Digital Shapers list
In 2018, fintech, maintaining its positions at the top of the lists of the largest companies in Poland and standing out in the Bloomberg ranking, also reached for other unique awards.
In February 2018 Cinkciarz.pl took the fourth place according to reference ratings in the 14th edition of Rzeczpospolita's Most Valuable Polish Brand Ranking. In March, it won the competition for the best Currency Exchange Service of the Year in the 4th edition of Expo FxCuffs, i.e. a great event (fair, series of lectures and gala) for currency markets all over Europe.
That period, rich in successes, was crowned by third place in the category of the Best Polish Service 2018 ranking "LUBIĘ, BO POLSKIE", i.e. the list of Polish Radio S.A., and a place in the top ten on the list of 2000 "Rzeczpospolita" with the annual revenue of Cinkciarz.pl Sp. o.o. exceeding 17 billion PLN.
Leaders in Bloomberg rankings
After the successful debut in the aforementioned 2013, accurate currency forecasts became the domain of fintech analysts in the following years.
Evidence of how a Polish company leaves the world's giants behind, i.e. the representatives of the world's most famous banks and financial institutions, has been praised by the media from various continents.
The most successful year in Bloomberg's ranking was 2019. Cinkciarz.pl took places on the podium 58 times, winning 31 times. For comparison: the second team of analysts took 45 places in the top three, including 13 on top. Will anyone manage to improve this result...
In the jubilee year, Cinkciarz.pl remained at the top of the "Wprost" and "Rzeczpospolita" rankings, which illustrate not only the size of the companies but also the scale of their development dynamics. Therefore, it is worth mentioning the ranking of Polish Cheetahs, in which fintech took 11th position among 200 classified companies.
"We do not want to label which of the listed awards we value the most. When the industry sees and appreciates our achievements, it is incredibly satisfying. However, the truth is that success in business is not determined by the statues in the company's showcase. In 10 years we have built a group of companies providing various financial services made available on web portals cinkciarz.pl and conotoxia.com. Our services are dedicated to both individual and business clients. This seems to be our most valuable achievement. However, naturally, we will try to make sure that our services fulfil the expectations and allow us to fill in the awards section of our website", says Piotr Kicinski.
