The funding round has been spearheaded by Cometa, a venture capital fund based in Mexico, and has seen participation from JME Ventures, Conexo Ventures, and CDTI, as well as a group of knowledgeable business angels specializing in Web3, including Neil Cunha-Gomes, who serves as the Head of FinTech and Crypto for EMEA at Softbank as per the latest information shared with Finbold.
Atani is the cryptocurrency broker where over 300,000 investors may buy and sell any cryptocurrency. Safely trade thousands of tokens on the best exchanges in the world, do in-depth market research, and keep track of their holdings with just one account.
Established in 2019, and it already has regulatory license from the Bank of Spain, as a Virtual Assets Service Provider, services customers from over 200 countries, and handles over $1.5 billion in trade volume every month. With this approval in hand, Atani may now provide its own exchange service backed by stringent regulatory safeguards.
Simplifying the crypto ecosystem
Paul Barroso, Co-founder and CPO of Atani stated:
“Before Atani existed, crypto traders had to open multiple accounts with different exchanges, devote countless hours to learn how to use each of them and get frustrated trying to do things as basic as executing an order or checking their balance. The crypto ecosystem was missing an experience similar to that of digital stock brokers.”
Pepe Bolaños, Managing Partner at Cometa and early backer of Bitso, Latin America’s first crypto unicorn, added:
“Atani has built infrastructure for the foundational use cases of web 3.0, transacted volumes and user activity validates the need for such a platform. Going forward, we are particularly excited about how they will enable crypto use cases for businesses: allowing them to expand their financial products offering to end users.”
In the present market landscape, Atani is dedicated to constructing the next iteration of financial technology.
