LONDON: Cryptocurrency firm Blockchain.com said on Wednesday it had raised US$300 million in its latest funding round at a valuation of US$5.2 billion.
The round was led by DST Global, Lightspeed Venture Partners and VY Capital, the London-based company said
Blockchain.com offers digital wallets for storage of cryptocurrencies as well as retail trading and other services for larger investors.
Bitcoin soared to a record just shy of US$62,000 this month as mainstream firms and investors increasingly embrace cryptocurrencies, leading to ballooning valuations of related companies.
Blockchain.com said last month it raised about US$120 million, with investments from Alphabet Inc's venture capital unit.
