Kaiko announces a $53M Series B

News

The funding will enable Kaiko to further consolidate its position as the global industry reference for centralized and decentralized digital assets data services.

Kaiko, the leading digital assets data provider serving institutional investors and enterprises, announced it has raised $53 million in Series B funding. The round was led by Eight Roads, with participation from Revaia and existing investors Alven, Point9, Anthemis, and Underscore.

Kaiko has established its position by enhancing transparency and operational efficiency for institutional companies, DeFi participants, and Web3 enterprises. Today, the company counts some of the leading financial firms as partners and clients, including ICE Global Network, Deutsche Börse, Oanda, Bloomberg, and some of the largest asset managers and investment banks in North America and Europe. 

Kaiko is also deeply integrated with the blockchain ecosystem, providing data feeds for participants such as Ledger, Paxos, Chainlink, Tezos, Messari, SupraOracles, Flux, and the Pyth network, a Jump Trading initiative.

With the growing institutional participation in digital assets, access to reliable, transparent, and regulatory-compliant market information has never been of greater importance. This new round of funding will enable Kaiko to further strengthen its institutional data products and infrastructure, reinforcing the Company as the critical source of centralized and decentralized market information.

In February 2022, Kaiko received its SOC-2 Type-1 accreditation, a gold standard certification developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) that indicates how companies manage data security, confidentiality, and availability of measurements and controls.

“The blockchain industry has experienced tremendous institutional interest and with it, the need for high-quality data has never been greater. Over the next year, we will solidify our position as an industry leader in institutional data solutions, serving as a critical bridge between centralized and decentralized financial marketplaces.”

The proceeds of the funding will also be used to expand Kaiko’s global presence. The Company currently has four global offices in Paris, London, New York, and Singapore, which enables the team to tailor products and marketing to meet the specific needs of local markets.
