斥资3200万,高盛如此看好的创企是什么来头?

8月14日,高盛联合其他知名银行和风投机构,共同助力区块链创企Axoni完成3200万美元的B轮融资。

该轮融资由高盛和Nyca Partners领投,其他投资者包括Wells Fargo,摩根大通,花旗集团和Andreessen Horowitz等。拥有此次融资的加持后,Axoni的总融资额已达到5500万美元。

Axoni的联合创始人Greg Schvey称,这轮融资不仅仅代表资本注入,还代表了一种“深度战略”联盟,因为许多投资者都在通过投资分布式记账技术(DLT)来为传统的金融领域带来创新,比如投资区块链。据报道,高盛、摩根大通和花旗集团已经成功测试了Axoni的区块链平台Axcore,该平台主要进行股票衍生品的交易。

成立于2016年、总部位于纽约的Axoni计划利用这笔资金来帮助其现有的企业客户将自己的用户“整合到三个分布式账本平台中”,现已即将完成。Axoni目前正在进行的最大项目是与DTCC的合作项目,它是全球最高的金融价值处理商,每年处理1.6千万亿美元的证券交易。去年,DTCC宣布将与Axoni、IBM和区块链联盟R3合作,使用Axcore来为其贸易信息仓库重新构建衍生品处理平台。

Enterprise-focused blockchain startup Axoni has raised $32 million in a funding round led by Goldman Sachs and other high-profile banks and venture capital investors, Forbes reports August 14.

The $32 million Series B funding round was led by Goldman Sachs and Nyca Partners, with numerous other investors including Wells Fargo, JPMorgan, Citigroup, and Andreessen Horowitz. The fresh investment brings Axoni’s total financing to $55 million to date.

Axoni’s co-founder, Greg Schvey, told Forbes that the round represented not just an injection of capital but a “deep strategic” alliance, given that many of the investors are themselves innovating the traditional financial sector by turning to distributed ledger technologies (DLT), such as blockchain.

Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan and Citigroup have already successfully tested Axoni’s blockchain platform Axcore for trading equity derivatives, Forbes reports.

New York-based Axoni, founded in 2016, reportedly plans to use the capital to help its existing enterprise clients to “integrate their own users” into three of its distributed ledger platforms, now close to completion.

The largest project Axoni currently has underway is with DTCC –– the highest financial value processor in the world, processing $1.6 quadrillion in securities transactions per year. Last year, DTCC had announced it would work with Axoni, IBM and blockchain consortium R3 to re-platform its Trade Information Warehouse for derivatives processing using the Axcore blockchain.

Other notable recent venture capital infusions into the crypto and blockchain space include $28 mln from Andreessen Horowitz and Pantera Capital for securities blockchain platform Harbor, and Rockefeller’s VC Arm Venrock’s partnership with crypto investment group Coinfund.
