Cryptocurrency trading platform Atani closes its funding round on $6.25m

Atani, which is designed to be a one-stop trading suite for cryptocurrency investors, has closed its latest funding round on $6.25m.

The round was led by JME Ventures, a Spanish venture capital firm that was an early investor in payments unicorn Flywire. Other backers to the round included Conexo Ventures, Encomenda Smart Capital and Lanai Partners.

Alongside investment firms, several angels joined the round, including entrepreneurs, experts in crypto, blockchain technology, finance, legal affairs and crypto taxation.

Atani previously bagged a $750,000 pre-seed round in May 2019 and has now raised a total of $7m in equity.

The seed funding will be used to accelerate Atani’s global expansion efforts and release new premium features, such as API trading.

Through the support of the funding, the company’s co-founder Paul Barroso hopes it will enable Atani to “bring a seamless crypto trading experience across spot, futures and DeFi to users in every corner of the globe.”

Atani is an all-in-one custodial platform designed for crypto traders and investors. Its platform supports trade execution, portfolio monitoring and charting across 20+ crypto exchanges in a single interface. The platform is all in real-time and free to use.

Other features include  an integrated tax-reporting tool, which builds an automatic report for over 30 countries.

JME Ventures partner Samuel Gil said, “We believe Atani is one of just a few startups really addressing the needs of cryptocurrency traders.

“Compared to traditional stockbrokers, cryptocurrency trading platforms provide a very poor and fragmented user experience and lack the proper portfolio management and tax accounting tools. Atani effectively solves those pain points.”
