Fireblocks, an enterprise-grade platform delivering infrastructure for moving, storing, and issuing blockchain assets, today announced it has raised $133 million in Series C funding led by Coatue, Ribbit, and Stripes with strategic investment from The Bank of New York Mellon (BNY Mellon) and SVB.

With the new injection of funds from strategic investors, Fireblocks aims to continue to expand global resources to service the world’s biggest banks and fintechs and connect them to the entire crypto capital markets.
Now, Fireblocks will offer banks and traditional financial institutions the ability to seamlessly plug into the broader decentralized finance ecosystem and all of its market participants. Using Fireblocks’ platform, banks and fintechs can rapidly deploy custody, tokenization, asset management, trading, lending, and payment solutions across public and private blockchain networks.
Fireblocks began with serving crypto-native institutions and exchanges, and has grown over the last three years to become the first and only institutional digital asset transfer and wallet network trusted to secure more than $400 billion assets for its customers.
Strategic investor, BNY Mellon, the world’s largest asset servicer, announced earlier this year their commitment to accelerate the development of enterprise solutions to service the digital asset space.
