The strong participation in the round table shows the affinity of investors for the growth prospects offered by Tesseract, whose aim is to bridge the gap between traditional finance and the crypto ecosystem.

The world of digital currencies has grown tremendously over the past decade and, more importantly, over the past 12 months. While the growth of the ecosystem was championed by retail investors early on, last year marked the start of a growing number of institutional participations in cryptocurrency-related activities. Building on this momentum, Tesseract launched its core products which focus on margin lending, over-the-counter lending, partnerships with retail platforms and decentralized finance (DeFi).

According to Yichen, secure investors are essential to bring their expertise to help the company achieve its goals and “add significant value beyond the funding raised.”

Tesseract financing round to help its competition in a unique niche

Institutional investments in digital assets are still very low compared to other aspects of traditional asset finance. Corporate financing is currently around 10%, with a projection to reach 30% by 2025. The growth potential of its niche market has influenced Tesseract’s growth with growth of more than 20 times over one year and the size of the team increased from three to over twenty. The company has notably been profitable since the start of 2020, featuring an appropriate business model and administration.

“We are seeing major changes in the infrastructure supporting the crypto space as it evolves towards the demands of increasing institutional activity. After the separation of custody and negotiation in the first waves of evolution, Tesseract addresses the next fundamental need in a space of limited leverage, ”said Martyn Holman, Partner at Augmentum Fintech.

The involvement of institutional investors will help accelerate the shift from digital assets to mainstream adoption. Tesseract understands this trend and is committed to delivering the right products and services to engage these types of customers in the right way.
