Atani raises $6 million to launch a crypto brokerage

Atani, a crypto FinTech business based in Spain, revealed on October 24 that it has successfully raised $6 million in funding.

According to the most up-to-date information shared with Finbold, Cometa, a Mexican venture capital fund, has led the funding round, which has also included participation from JME Ventures, Conexo Ventures, CDTI, and a group of educated business angels specializing in Web3. Among these angels is Neil Cunha-Gomes, who serves as the Head of FinTech and Crypto for EMEA at Softbank.

Over 300,000 users have signed up with Atani, making it the largest crypto trading platform in terms of volume. One unified account may be used for trading thousands of tokens on the world’s top exchanges, doing in-depth market analysis, and keeping track of holdings.

It was founded in 2019, and it operates as a Virtual Assets Service Provider with a regulatory license from the Bank of Spain, serves clients from over 200 countries, and processes over $1.5 billion in monthly trading volume. With this certification in hand, Atani is free to provide its own exchange service with full regulatory protections.

Statement from Atani Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer Paul Barroso: “Before Atani, crypto traders had to sign up for a number of different exchange accounts, spend numerous hours learning how to use each one, and get increasingly upset over seemingly simple tasks like placing an order or seeing their account balance. The crypto industry lacked an equivalent to digital stock brokers.”

Bitso was the first crypto unicorn in Latin America, and Cometa managing partner Pepe Bolaos said as much.

“The sheer amount of transactions and the high level of engagement on the Atani platform prove the need for a system of this kind. We are optimistic about their future potential because of the crypto use cases they will make possible for businesses, enabling those companies to provide a wider range of financial solutions to their customers.”

Atani is committed to developing the next generation of financial technologies in the current market environment.
