区块链创企Everledger获1040万美元A轮融资

据外媒消息,总部位于英国伦敦的区块链初创公司Everledger宣布获得了一笔1040万美元的A轮融资,联合领投方为多伦多投资银行公司GMP Securities和Fidelity Investments,参投方包括Vickers Ventures Partners Graphene Venture Capital,以及此前曾投资过该公司的FPV、Bloomberg Beta、乐天和分布式资本。

该公司在五个国家拥有40名员工,未来两年内将进一步扩展至约100名员工。该公司利用区块链技术,负责跟踪全球数字分类帐中高价值资产的来源,并且为供应链上的利益相关者提供了资产的真实性,存在性和所有权的永恒历史历史记录。 Everledger的业务从追踪钻石开始,目前已有200多万颗在区块链上通过密码认证的钻石。不仅如此,他们的技术解决方案已扩展至彩色宝石,珠宝,美酒和艺术等行业。据悉,他们将会在孟买开设办事处,并计划进军中国市场。

Everledger, a London, UK-based developer of real-world applications based on emerging technologies, closed US$10.4m in Series A funding round.

Toronto-based investment banking firm GMP Securities co-ordinated the round with lead investor, the Canadian arm of Fidelity Investments. Participants in the round included Vickers Ventures Partners Graphene Venture Capital, and existing investors FPV, Fenbushi, Bloomberg Beta and Rakuten. In conjunction with the funding, Dr. Finian Tan, currently the chairman of Vickers Venture Partners, joined Everledger’s Board.

The company will use the funds to continue to develop its platform and expand its business reach.

Led by Founder & CEO Leanne Kemp, Everledger is a technology enterprise that tracks the provenance of high-value assets on a global digital ledger. Using blockchain, the company provides stakeholders across supply chains with an immutable history of an asset’s authenticity, existence and ownership. Everledger started off with tracking diamonds and currently has the provenance of over 2 million diamonds cryptographically-certified on the blockchain. This tech solution has since expanded into the world of coloured gemstones, jewellery, fine wine and art, among other industries.

The company has a team of 40 members across five countries, with further expansion to around 100 employees over the next two years. This new round of financing coincides with the opening of a new Mumbai-based office, in addition to entry into China.
