LONDON, FEBRUARY 24, 2022 — Nexo, one of the leading regulated institutions for digital assets, has announced a strategic partnership with global digital asset trading and financial technology provider, BlockFills. The announcement comes on the heels of Nexo’s participation in BlockFills’ $37 million Series A funding round announced in January.
A global provider of end-to-end solutions for digital asset market participants, BlockFills specializes in white-glove commercial lending and trading services for crypto and fiat for both institutional investors and miners. The company’s collaboration with Nexo will facilitate syndicated lending by connecting BlockFills’ miner-rich client base and trading flow from a first-of-its-kind SaaS crypto interface, Phoenix, to Nexo’s advanced financial tools for digital assets. BlockFills is also set to become a strategic client of Nexo Prime – the company’s sophisticated prime brokerage suite.
Through BlockFills’ proprietary derivative trading operations, Nexo gains increased exposure to crypto mining clients. Meanwhile, BlockFills will leverage Nexo’s advanced digital asset management capabilities to expand its reach internationally and further support institutional investors seeking greater stability and more robust technology for their digital asset investing needs.
Tatiana Metodieva, CFA, Head of Corporate Finance and Investments at Nexo remarked of the partnership: “Nexo’s collaboration with BlockFills is logical and synergistic. Our service offerings, geographic coverage, and addressable user bases complement each other; thus, our joint work will be conducive to the growth of our respective business operations in the digital assets industry.”
“We’re thrilled to continue building on our relationship with Nexo following our successful Series A funding round last month. Not only does Nexo match well with our technological capabilities at BlockFills, but we have also found a strong collaborative partner in the Nexo team,” said Nick Hammer, co-founder and CEO of BlockFills. “Together, we look forward to bringing leading and reliable trading opportunities to our growing client-base around the world.”
Nexo’s involvement in BlockFills’ Series A funding round and the resulting partnership come on the heels of numerous successful ventures by the lender’s established investment arm. Nexo’s rapidly progressing VC activity encompasses investments that broaden the company’s compliance capabilities, spur developments of decentralized financial solutions, and grow its presence in the metaverse, including establishing the novel MetaFi industry.
