Hardware wallet maker Ledger has just closed a massive Series C funding round led by digital asset fund 10T Holdings.
Ledger’s funding round also garnered support from Cathay Innovation, Draper Associates, DCG (the parent company of CoinDesk), Korelya Capital and Wicklow Capital, among others.
The Series C raise places Ledger with an implied valuation of more than $1.5 billion, marking the company’s rapid and accelerating growth, according to the release. Funding will go towards furthering innovation of its hardware products, providing new services for decentralized finance solutions, and expanding its enterprise capabilities.
“We believe Ledger is the premier security company and premier brand name in the cryptocurrency/blockchain space,” said Tapiero who simultaneously announced in the release that he would be joining Ledger’s board.
