Global crypto bank Sygnum has revealed it has secured $40 million in funding, $5 million more than it was anticipating, after recording positive cash flow and financials in the final quarter of last year.
The extra funding enables the bank to capitalize on the current favorable regulatory climate, expanding its offerings to attract a broader customer base.
Crypto Bank Sygnum Intends to Expand Crypto Operations with Funding
According to a recent report, Sygnum secured $40 million in a termed strategic growth round. The funds will be used to facilitate the global expansion of its crypto services:
“Proceeds from this financing round will be used to expand Sygnum’s geographic reach into new markets and accelerate the development of Sygnum’s fully regulated products such as its B2B (bank-to-bank) platform, which now powers the crypto offering of over 15 banks and financial institutions globally.”
Recently, Sygnum received approval from Singapore’s financial regulators to commence operations as a crypto firm in the country.
In October 2023, BeInCrypto reported that the Sygnum Singapore branch secured a license from the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) to run a crypto brokerage.
The news of the large funding comes amid positive results in the crypto industry in recent times.
On January 10, the crypto industry achieved a monumental regulatory victory in the United States. On this day, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved 11 spot Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) applications.
The industry response was positive, anticipating increased mainstream adoption of digital assets.
