Cryptocurrency exchange Luno's co-founder and chief technology officer (CTO) Timothy Stranex exited in December to "pursue personal projects," the firm has said.

Stranex's departure came nearly 10 years after he founded the company alongside Carel van Wyk, Pieter Heyns and current CEO Marcus Swanepoel. He's been replaced in the CTO slot by Simon Ince, who joined Luno just under two years ago as its vice-president of engineering.

Luno, whose parent company is Digital Currency Group (also the parent company of CoinDesk), says it has over 10 million customers worldwide. Headquartered in London, it also has offices in Singapore, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Lagos and Sydney.
