Shakepay, a Canadian Bitcoin Exchange Platform (BTC) and ether (ETH), announced it had closed $ 44 million in Serie A funding. The circuit was led by QED Investors, a U.S. venture capital firm.
“We love our dedicated community of shakers, and this funding is going to bring you more products and services to help you earn, access and build wealth in bitcoins. In 2021, we grew 381% to more than 900,000 shakers from $ 6 billion in total and increased our team from about 20 people to 75 across Canada. Just imagine what this funding could mean for 2022 and the future after that. ”
