Atani, a Spanish fintech startup, announced on 6th April 2021 that it has raised US $ 6.3 million in its seed funding round. The round was led by JME Ventures along with participation from Lanai Partners, Conexo Ventures and Encomenda VC.
Investors: JME Ventures is a Madrid, Spain, based venture capital firm that was founded in the year 2009. Its investments are mainly directed towards early-stage Spanish technology companies. It has so far made around 53 successful investments and carried out 4 exits. Its portfolio includes companies such as Flywire, Volava, Emjoy, Kymatio, Heygo and more.
“We believe Atani is one of just a few startups really addressing the needs of cryptocurrency traders. Compared to traditional stockbrokers, cryptocurrency trading platforms provide a very poor and fragmented user experience and lack the proper portfolio management and tax accounting tools. Atani effectively solves those pain points.”— Samuel Gil, partner at JME Ventures.
Purpose of funding: The latest round of funding brings the total funds raised by Atani to around US $ 6.9 million. The funds would be utilised by Atani to expedite its global expansion and add more features to its trading platform. Further with the funding, Atani seeks to create a seamless trading experience across spot, futures and DeFi to users all over the world.
Atani was founded in the year 2019 by Haydee Barroso Bañales and Paul Barroso as an all-in-one smart crypto trading platform operating with over 20+ crypto exchanges on a single interface. It seeks to remove the various hurdles faced by traders when dealing with cryptocurrencies.
Its services that make trading seamless and streamlined include real-time alerts that make sure a trader never misses any trade; data, charts, past performance records and tools to make technical analysis all at one place; automatically generated single-click tax reports catered to requirements of 30+ countries; facility to easily manage portfolios; and genuine security.
What the CEO has to say:
“We started investing in Bitcoin back in 2013 and have experienced first-hand the growing sophistication and fragmentation of the crypto market. The pains of interacting with different exchanges, managing multiple trading tools or dealing with taxes drove us to build Atani” — Paul Barroso, co-founder and CEO of Atani
