Zurich, Switzerland - 13 December, 2015: Credit Suisse sign over the entrance of the Credit Suisse office in Oerlikon.

A total of $65 million was raised in funding by the digital assets infrastructure provider.

Taurus’ T-DX platform is one of the first regulated platforms across the globe that hosts the trading of tokenized securities.

Credit Suisse Leads $65m Crypto Funding Round

Investment by traditional financial giants in crypto businesses acknowledges that the underlying technology is here to stay. Many analysts were predicting that it would be hard for digital asset firms to raise funds due to the collapse of Celsius and FTX. However, recent news suggests the opposite, as global institutional capital keeps flowing into crypto.

The global crypto markets are in turmoil due to the high-interest rates in the US. The recent bankruptcies of centralized crypto giants like FTX, Voyager Digital, and Celsius have hurt investor sentiment. However, the institutional interest in blockchain infrastructure providers is increasing every day. The recent funding comes when Credit Suisse is already facing financial issues and its stock price is tumbling.

Taurus has declined to reveal the valuation of the company in the latest funding round. However, the firm has indicated that the raised capital would be utilized to expand its operations in the United Arab Emirates and Europe. The firms executives have welcomed the funding from Credit Suisse and other traditional financial institutions.

We are proud to welcome such high-profile investors as Credit Suisse and benefit from their expertise to further develop one of the richest platforms in the industry, covering any type of digital asset, way beyond cryptocurrencies.
