Ask anyone about the primary association with the first half of 2020, and the answer most probably will be: coronavirus. Unfortunately, the global fight against the pandemic also caused significant turmoil in the financial markets. In mid-March, the currencies of Central European countries, such as Polish zloty, the Czech koruna, and the Hungarian forint, lost its value against the euro, the dollar, the franc, and the pound. Aversion to risk grew, exchange rates volatility increased, and customers were looking for currencies considered as a safe haven. These factors, mixed with uncertainty about the future, provoked an unprecedented increase in interest in financial services available on our portal.

The volume of payment transactions raised by 23% and the online payments performed using Conotoxia Pay service increased by nearly 300%. At the same time, the volume of Forex transactions, provided by Conotoxia Ltd., a company from the Conotoxia Holding group increased by 455%, with the revenues boosting by 415%, and from March to June the growth was even more visible: turnover increased by 842% and revenues by 648%.
