Welcoming Baillie Gifford

Last month, we announced that we raised $300M in Series C funding led by DST Global partners, Lightspeed Ventures, and VY Capital. Today we’re excited to publicly share that Baillie Gifford not only participated in that round but invested $100M — the largest single investment in Blockchain.com to date.

For those who aren’t familiar, Baillie Gifford is a storied 110-year-old asset management firm who were early investors in some of the biggest tech-enabled companies over the last 20 years (Tesla, Google, Amazon, Airbnb, and more). They keep a low profile, have exacting standards, and are invaluable partners to Blockchain.com as we grow. As one of their first investments in a crypto company, we’re honored to include them on our journey to bring the next 1B people into crypto. It’s also a validation that a balanced and diversified retail/institutional business has incredible growth potential in the coming years.

With additional resources and support, we’ll continue to relentlessly improve our product, grow the business, and evangelize the crypto space.

Onward! 🚀
