With the investments, ConsenSys will continue its commercialization of industry leading platforms as distribution channels for decentralized finance (DeFi) protocols. ConsenSys Co-Founder, Joseph Lubin, says the company's software stack represents access to a "new automated objective trust foundation enabled by decentralized protocols like Ethereum."
"When we set out to raise a round, it was important to us to patiently construct a diverse cap table, consistent with our belief that similar to how the web developed, the whole economy would join the revolutionaries on a next generation protocol," Lubin added.
In August last year, ConsenSys acquired Quorum, a blockchain network based on the Ethereum blockchain and developed by JPMorgan. With the acquisition, ConsenSys offers a full range of products, services, and support for Quorum, accelerating the availability of features and capabilities.
