We have developed a number of financial software solutions, one of which is a Cryptocurrency Exchange. It was developed based on our extensive experience and market research. It can be purchased not only as a turn-key solution, but also as a comprehensive Software Requirements Specifications document to help you develop your own software product. 

It considers the wishes of the vast majority of users, and provides all necessary information. This document articulates, in writing, the needed capabilities, functions, innovations, and constraints of a software development project. 

Cryptocurrency exchange software requirement specifications describe all elements (functional and nonfunctional areas), how the software works and interacts with users, and what problems the software will solve. This document then serves as a “parent” document to support the design and development process.

This document can save time in multi-layer team communication including design, validation, testing and overall user acceptance.
