Rain Financial is the company behind the Rain cryptocurrency exchange. It is which the Central Bank of Bahrain regulates, that has acquired $110 million in series B fundraising. It happens as cryptocurrencies gather momentum among conventional investors around the world.
Leading the round was Paradigm. It is a cryptocurrency-focused investment firm headquartered in San Francisco. Kleiner Perkins also leads. It is a Silicon Valley startup capital firm.
The company made an announcement last Tuesday. Rain Financial was also backed by Coinbase Ventures, Global Founders Capital, Middle East Venture Partners, Cadenza Ventures, Jimco, and CMT Digital.
This investment possibility excites us. Because it lets us pursue discussions with policymakers in the Mena region, Turkey, and Pakistan on the perks and possibilities of cryptocurrency. The developers added that this would help them achieve their broader goal. They aim to deliver virtual currency awareness and accessibility to each of their targeted markets.
At Rain, we are confident in the long-term potential of virtual currency. We also believe in the blockchain technology that underpins it to transform global banking.
Over the last two years, cryptocurrency has grown in popularity, owing in part to increasing digital uptake during the epidemic. Disgruntled investors fueled it with additional time on their hands due to travel limitations and spare funds to invest following a succession of government stimulus initiatives.
The creators founded Rain Financial in 2017 and had a grant of a virtual currency broker license by Bahrain’s central bank in 2019. Investors can purchase and exchange cryptocurrencies through the organization and use custodian programs to keep their assets safe.
