French technology and digital company Ledger said on Thursday it completed a new $380 million fundraising round that gave it a valuation of more than $1.5 billion.
Ledger, headquartered in Paris, runs a platform called Ledger-Live which deals with cryptocurrencies.
Its latest Series C fundraising round was led by 10T Holdings, while other investors involved included Financiere Agache, a unit of Bernard Arnault, the French luxury goods billionaire who runs LVMH (LVMH.PA).
“This Series C announcement marks the transition of Ledger from the leading digital asset security company to becoming the secure gateway to the entire digital asset ecosystem,” Ledger’s CEO Pascal Gauthier said in a statement.
“This industry is fast becoming mainstream and reshaping the entire financial sector and beyond,” added Gauthier.
