Business updates

Last quarter, we completed a strategic round of financing with Bain Capital Ventures and Jaan Tallinn, an early developer and co-founder of Skype.

Bain Capital Ventures partners with disruptive founders to accelerate their ideas to market. The firm invests from seed to growth in startups driving transformation across a wide variety of industries. Bain has helped launch and commercialize more than 240 companies, including DocuSign, LinkedIn, SendGrid and SurveyMonkey. Recent crypto investments include decentralized finance (DeFi) projects Maker and Compound, and centralized exchanges and trading platforms such as Seed CX, Lumina, Hummingbot.

Bain Capital Ventures, with $5.2 billion in assets and offices in San Francisco, New York, Boston and Palo Alto, is the venture investing arm of Bain Capital with $105 billion under management.

With Bain and Jaan’s help, we were able to launch the exchange and we look forward to continued guidance from them. For more about the round as well as our newly opened strategic round, read Coin Desk’s recent exclusive interview with Craig Austin, our co-founder and CTO.
