"This round will enable us to further expand our node infrastructure services, add to our growing team, and strengthen our presence in emerging markets across the globe," said Konstantin Richter, founder, and chief executive of Blockdaemon.
Well, Blockdaemon has significantly increased its team’s headcount in the past year and appointed Cecily Mak as its chief operating officer and Demetrios Skalkotos as global senior VP of sales.
The company offers access to new financial infrastructure for a wide variety of market participants, from large financial institutions, exchanges, and custodians to small, agile crypto native firms and developers.
