Goldman Sachs and Galaxy Digital’s Mike Novogratz Invest $15 Million in Crypto Custody Firm

October 19, 2018

 

U.S. banking giant Goldman Sachs and its former partner Mike Novogratz, now CEO of crypto investment firm Galaxy Digital, have recently invested in U.S. crypto custody service BitGo, Bloomberg reports Wednesday, Oct. 18. In total, BitGo's series B fund rounding has brought in $58.5 million. According to Bloomberg, Goldman Sachs and Novogratz together contributed about $15 million, as their clients show growing interest in cryptocurrencies.

Bloomberg notes that BitGo managed to raise a total of $70 million in all of its fundraising rounds. The significant investment from two firms affiliated with Wall Street might help BitGo attract more wealthy investors in the future, Bloomberg believes. BitGo is an American crypto wallet and blockchain security firm founded back in 2013. As Cointelegraph wrote earlier, in September, the company received a state trust company charter from the South Dakota Division of Banking, thus becoming a qualified custodian for crypto. Goldman Sachs has also reportedly considered creating its own crypto custody. In August, insiders told Bloomberg that the company aims to offer various products linked to digital assets “in response to client interest.” The unnamed sources added that having a custodian operation could also lead Goldman Sachs to other ventures, including prime-brokerage services.
