BlockFi announced it has raised $30 million in Series B funding led by Valar Ventures and other participating investors including Morgan Creek Digital, PJC, Akuna Capital, etc.

The crypto company offers a range of financial products seamlessly interacting with each other. These products include crypto-based interest accounts which provide up to an 8.6% annual percentage yield on Bitcoin, Ether, and stablecoins.

In addition to that, BlockFi provides crypto-backed loans enabling investors to access liquidity up to 50% of an asset’s value in USD. The company offers zero-fee trading as well.

BlockFi’s growth and product expansion pipeline were the catalysts for the fundraise. The company will use the proceeds to enlarge its team and expand BlockFi’s offerings.  BlockFi aims to introduce products accessible to a mainstream audience, starting with a mobile app in the nearest future.

We were proud to have made our first investment in the crypto sector with BlockFi, and we’re excited to continue propelling the company forward as they define the industry standard for what a modern financial services company for cryptocurrency looks like
Andrew McCormack, general partner at Valar Ventures
