Spain-based crypto fintech startup Atani, is announcing the successful completion of a funding round of $6 million.
The round has been led by Cometa, the Mexican venture capital fund, and has been participated by JME Ventures, Conexo Ventures and CDTI, along with a roster of business angels experts in Web3, such as Neil Cunha-Gomes, Head of FinTech & Crypto for EMEA at Softbank.
Atani is the cryptocurrency broker relied upon by more than 300,000 traders from all over the world to find and trade any cryptocurrency asset. From a single account, users can securely purchase and sell thousands of tokens on the top exchanges in the world, study the markets, and manage their portfolio.
The company was created in 2019 and currently has customers from more than 200 countries and handles more than 1,500 million in trading volume. Atani was recently given regulatory approval by the Bank of Spain to become a Virtual Assets Service Provider. Now is allowed to offer its own exchange service with the highest level of regulatory assurance thanks to this authorization.
“Before Atani existed, crypto traders had to open multiple accounts with different exchanges, devote countless hours to learn how to use each of them, and get frustrated trying to do things as basic as executing an order or checking their balance. The crypto ecosystem was missing an experience similar to that of digital stock brokers” said Paul Barroso, Co-founder & CPO of Atani.
“We founded Atani back in 2019 driven by a long-term vision of making investing in crypto markets simple, efficient and secure. Over the years, our team has proven its unique ability to deliver high-performing regulated financial infrastructure. In the current market context, we are more committed than ever to building the next generation of financial technology” added Haydée Barroso, Co-founder & CEO.
“Atani has built infrastructure for the foundational use cases of web 3.0, transacted volumes and user activity validates the need for such a platform. Going forward, we are particularly excited about how they will enable crypto use cases for businesses: allowing them to expand their financial products offering to final users” added Pepe Bolaños, Managing Partner at Cometa and early backer of Bitso, Latin America’s first crypto unicorn.
By combining the assets and liquidity of various cryptocurrency exchanges, Atani automatically routes each trade to the platform with the best price, enabling its users to access all of the market’s cryptocurrencies from a single account.
The money raised in this funding round will help the business grow internationally and expedite the expansion of its exchange brokerage service.
