Crypto trading company Talos has increased funding for firms such as Stripes, BNY Mellon, Citi, Ken Fox’s private trust company, and others.
According to a statement made last month, Talos has secured $105 million in a Series B fundraising round headed by General Atlantic, a prominent global growth equity organization. Cryptocurrency and conventional finance companies such as DRW, Voyager, Citi, Wells Fargo Strategic Capital, BNY Mellon, Stripes, and others participated in the raise.
The shareholders Illuminate, Castle Island Ventures, Notation Capital, Fidelity Investments, and others from the $40 Series A round that ended last year in May, also participated in the fundraising round.
The CEO and co-founder of Talos, Anton Katz, has said that the funding round is a defining moment for the company, as a number of cryptocurrency institutions now refer to the organization as the world’s top digital asset trading platform.
