YPOG advises LI.FI on $17.5 million Series-A-financing round

Hamburg – YPOG advised LI.FI Service GmbH on its $17.5 million Series A financing round, co-led by CoinFund and Superscrypt. The Berlin-based start-up enables banks, fintechs and hedge funds to automatically exchange crypto assets between multiple blockchains.

The round, which totalled $17.5 million, also includes participation from Bloccelerate, L1 Digital, Circle, Factor, Perridon, Theta Capital, Three Point Capital, Abra, and nearly 20 angel investors.
The capital from this funding round will be used to accelerate the development of the LI.FI offering across more blockchains, decentralised exchanges (DEXs) and cross-chain bridges. It will also be used to expand sales, business development, marketing and other capabilities, and to strengthen the connection between traditional finance and DeFi in a meaningful way to integrate these institutions into the financial markets of the future.

A YPOG team led by Stefan Richter and Ferdinand Cadmus provided comprehensive tax and legal advice to the start-up on the financing round, which included not only an equity participation but also a token investment.
