The funding will support Cabital’s growth ambitions in Europe, help onboard senior talent and further develop its proprietary digital wealth management platform.
To capture the immense opportunities across Europe, Cabital will add SEPA to its list of payment methods, allowing customers to seamlessly move between euros and crypto by the end of Q3. While some firms require up to €1,000 as a minimum deposit and only allow users to buy cryptocurrencies with euro, Cabital won’t require a minimum and maximum deposit amount and will allow its customers to make deposits in euro, as well as withdraw their earnings in euro.
This will enable customers in the European Union to on-ramp with EUR into digital assets and off-ramp with cryptocurrencies into EUR, making Cabital not only a trusted on-and-off ramp solution but also the digital wealth management platform of choice for Europeans.
Raymond Hsu, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, said:
“Today, Cabital crossed an important milestone in our journey to build an alternative and safe financial industry.”
“Our purpose is to simplify investing in the crypto world for average investors, with a product that’s simple, secure, and sensible. Regardless of whether you’re a new or an experienced investor, we help you get more out of your digital assets to get you closer to your life goals sooner.”
“Cabital’s successful seed round is a testament that we are in the right business, with the right product, with the right strategy and we will continue to deliver our promise of helping more people across the world reach their financial goals.”
Lu Guo, SIG’s Partner, said:
“We’ve decided to lead Cabital’s seed round of funding as we see a massive surge in crypto investment. As cryptocurrency is now coming into the mainstream, Cabital is proposing new investment opportunities for crypto-wealth management products, which will meet regulatory compliance standards as well as maintain strong leadership in this growing market that’s increasingly globalized.”
