CoinList Raises $100M Series A to Fuel Global Expansion
We are pleased to announce that CoinList has raised $100 million in Series A funding, bringing CoinList’s valuation to $1.5 billion. The funding adds fuel to the last 12 months of global user and revenue growth, which has been driven by a strong token issuance market and our expansion into trading, staking, and lending.
Participants in the round are CoinList’s closest partners and most active users. The round is co-led by early CoinList backer, Accomplice, alongside Agman. Also participating are funds and individuals reflecting CoinList’s global audience. Funds include HashKey Capital, Access Ventures, Alphemy Capital, Broadhaven Ventures, Continue Capital, CMT Digital, DFG, FBG Capital, Fenbushi Capital, executives from GoldenTree Asset Management, Hack VC, Jsquare, LD Capital, Metaplanet, Perpetual Value Partners, Rising Tide Fund, and Taavet+Sten. Thanks go to Imperii Partners for collaborating with us on the round.
“In this round, we focused on deepening relationships with our existing community rather than signing new venture capital. And our community is truly global. While we have some great U.S. investors, our new investors are mostly active users and partners in the regions where we are growing fastest - Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. We’re very excited to have them join us,” said CoinList CEO, Graham Jenkin.
This represents a major milestone in our mission to accelerate the advancement and adoption of crypto. We’ll be using the funds to scale our services and operations, better support our global community of early adopters, launch new products like CoinList Karma and CoinList Governance that boost protocol participation, and continue to find the best new projects in crypto and help them and their communities succeed.
