Banxa, a full-service, internationally compliant digital banking infrastructure provider, announced its $2 million USD investment Series A round. Led by NGC Ventures, one of the world’s leading blockchain investment firms, this funding round will be used to support Banxa’s global expansion efforts as they enter new markets throughout Europe, Asia, and Africa. Other participating investors in the raise including Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) listed Thorney Investment Group Australia, a multi-billion dollar family office that offers asset management, financial planning, and advisory services.

Banxa addresses the issue of user experience and onboarding while providing the much-needed regulatory assurances for newcomers to this nascent digital asset class. We are thrilled to support Banxa as they embark upon this next phase of growth.”
This funding round is also envisaged to support further efforts of onboarding prospective customers as Banxa expands its global payment network.

As a global payment infrastructure that looks to become the preferred digital banking service provider of the future, we now find ourselves entering this next phase of maturity as a company as we continue to support users looking to benefit from the full potential of their digital asset holdings.”
