Tagomi, an electronic brokerage offering prime services on an agency basis for sophisticated investors of Bitcoin, Ether, and other digital assets, today announced a new round of capital investment. Paradigm, a Yale and Sequoia-backed fund, and Pantera, the first US digital asset firm, are major participants amongst a notable group of digital asset investors.
The fresh set of funding comes two months after Tagomi announced its public product launch in December and brings total funding to $28 million. Participation in this round of financing was open to clients of the platform.
With the capital from this financing, Tagomi plans to grow operations to support and scale with client demand.
