Coinbase has received a strategic investment of $10m from Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi UFJ (BTMU), Mitsubishi UFJ Capital and Silicon Valley investor Sozo Ventures.
The company is also forming a partnership with BTMU to support the bitcoin firm’s overseas expansion efforts into the Asian market.
Coinbase offers bitcoin processing for merchants and a digital wallet for consumers.
It claims more than 4m users across 32 countries and has seen more than $4bn exchanged in the cryptocurrency since launching in 2012.
The new round takes the funding raised by the San Francisco-based company to more than $117m in total.
It previously raised a $75m Series C round led by DFJ at the start of 2015.
It counts a number of high-profile VCs among its backers, such as Andreessen Horowitz, FundersClub and Union Square Ventures, as well as traditional financial institutions including the NYSE and BBVA.
