Shakepay is a Canadian company that allows Canadians to buy bitcoin and pay their friends. The company was founded in 2016 by two friends, Jean-François (JF) Rouleau and Maxime (Max) Bouchard, who met while attending McGill University in Montreal. JF and Max were looking for a way to easily buy bitcoin and realized that there was no good way for Canadians to do so. So they decided to build Shakepay. ~Since its launch, Shakepay has been growing rapidly. The company now has over 100,000 users and is the leading bitcoin payment provider in Canada.
