  • Firms that participated in Hex Trust’s $6 million Series A funding round in March also invested in the latest round, including Borderless Capital, Cell Rising Capital, Kenetic Capital, Mantra DAO, QBN Capital, and Radiant Tech Ventures.
  • Hex Trust’s fresh funds will go toward furthering its market infrastructure and security frameworks underpinning its Hex Safe custody platform, the firm said in a press release Tuesday. The capital will also fund the company’s expansion in Singapore and Vietnam as well as establish a footprint in Europe and the Middle East.
  • Last month, the custodian secured a license to provide custodial services from the Monetary Authority of Singapore under the country’s Securities and Futures Act.
