区块链创企Paxos获6500万美元B轮融资

据外媒消息,总部位于纽约的区块链初创公司Paxos宣布完成了一笔6500万美元的B轮融资,领投方为Liberty City Ventures、RRE Ventures和Jay Jordan。截至目前,该公司的融资总金额已经达到了9330万美元。

Paxos公司前身是itBit,他们在两年前完成了品牌更名。据悉,该公司计划利用这笔最新融资扩大业务覆盖范围,同时将为跨国资本市场提供更多产品。Paxos公司主要为数字化资产提供解决方案,同时也为贵金融和证券交易提供结算交易服务。今年年初,该公司获得了纽约金融服务部批复的盘后交易结算服务执照,成为纽约州的一家受监管信托公司。

去年七月,Paxos公司宣布与欧洲最大的结算服务公司Euroclear结束了为伦敦黄金市场开发区块链服务的合作。不过虽然双方合作终止,但Paxos已经表示,他们将会继续完成该平台开发,并在今年正式推出。该公司首席执行官查尔斯·卡斯卡瑞拉认为,现在是金融市场改革的关键时刻,也是一个历史拐点。区块链技术不仅可以降低金融体系风险,而且能够给受困于传统结算系统的资本带来更大的自由度。

Blockchain startup Paxos has closed a $65 million Series B funding round led by existing investors including Liberty City Ventures, RRE Ventures and Jay Jordan.

The firm, which rebranded from itBit in 2016, has now raised a total of $93 million to date, according to a release. Paxos said it aims to use the new funds to scale up its operations and expand product offerings across international capital markets.

"It is a crucial time in the financial markets. We are at an inflection point to reduce the risk in our financial system and free capital trapped by an archaic settlement system," said Charles Cascarilla, the firm's chief executive.

Following the rebrand in 2016, Paxos moved to provide solutions for digitizing assets and settling trades in precious metals and securities. Earlier this year, the firm was licensed by the New York Department of Financial Services as a regulated trust to offer its post-trade settlement services in the U.S. state.

"This additional funding will further our goals to eliminate settlement risk and expand our product offerings across geographies," said Paxos COO Andrew Chang. "We are continuing to invest in expanding our platform that simplifies our financial infrastructure, offers greater control and lays the foundation for the future."

In summer 2017, the company's relationship with Europe's largest settlement service Euroclear ended, a development came after the two companies said they were developing a blockchain-based platform for settling gold trades with the aim of putting in place new infrastructure for London's gold market.

Paxos said at the time it would continue the platform's development and slated in an approximate date of 2018 for its launch.
