The round was led by existing investors including Liberty City Ventures, RRE Ventures, Jay Jordan and others. Paxos has now raised a total of $93 million in capital to date. The company is using the new resources to significantly scale operations and bring the delivery of modern day settlement solutions to the global capital markets.
