Blockchain.com, a leading crypto exchange and wallet provider, has successfully raised $110 million in a Series E funding round.
This round was led by UK-based Kingsway Capital, marking a significant shift in the company's valuation. Notably, the current valuation is less than half of its previous $14 billion, which was established in early 2022.
This latest round of funding, involving notable participants such as Baillie Gifford, Lakestar, Lightspeed Venture Partners, and Coinbase Ventures, has brought Blockchain.com's total raised capital to around $600 million since its inception in 2011. Baillie Gifford, a prominent investor in Tesla, had previously contributed $100 million to Blockchain.com’s $300 million Series C round in 2021.
The reduced valuation comes in the wake of significant industry challenges, including a layoff of 28% of Blockchain.com's workforce in January and the company's struggle with a $270 million loss from the 2021 collapse of crypto lender Three Arrows Capital. To mitigate these issues, Blockchain.com has implemented cost-cutting measures such as closing its Argentinian office, reducing CEO compensation, and laying off a quarter of its staff.
Despite these setbacks, the crypto market has shown signs of recovery. For instance, Bitcoin's price has significantly rebounded from being under $20,000 in most of October 2022 to trading above $35,000.
With this fresh capital, Blockchain.com aims to navigate the volatile crypto market and strengthen its position in the industry.
