Steez Capital, a Chinese-backed crypto-currency exchange, has raised $2.5 million from venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz, as well as private equity firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers.
Steez will also take over as the main investor of Crypto Coins’ new digital currency exchange, CryptoSteez.
Stuck in a stasis of sorts for nearly three years, Steez hopes to transform itself into a legitimate exchange platform for trading crypto currencies and altcoins.
The platform will allow users to trade crypto currencies like Bitcoin and Litecoin with a low-cost, decentralized exchange that supports a range of payment options, such as PayPal, Venmo, or Stripe.
CryptoSteez CEO Peter Chu told CoinDesk that the new venture will help Steez build a robust platform for crypto-related trading, adding that the platform will provide a platform for users to transact in crypto currencies that are not supported by the exchanges.
The company has already made significant strides in building out its crypto-focused platform, Chu said.
In December, Chu announced that the company had secured $100,000 from the Bitcoin Foundation to fund the company’s new launch of CryptoStroit, a new crypto-trading platform.
Stucky has raised around $5 million in funding since launching in March, with additional funds coming in as Stucky’s new product lineup expands to include new features and functionality.
Stoney’s investment is a significant boost to the company, Chu added, noting that the addition of Stoney to Steez’s leadership team will allow Stoney “to focus on the strategic and operational direction of Steez.”
Stucky, a startup based in China, plans to focus on digital currency trading.
Chu said the company will expand to other crypto currencies as the platform matures and it has more money to work with.
Cryptocurrency trading has become a significant part of the financial landscape, with several major financial institutions including JPMorgan Chase and Deutsche Bank currently taking part in trading.
Stoevesch, meanwhile, has invested in several other crypto-based exchanges, including Bitfinex, Coinbase, and Kraken.
Stokesch is currently working on Stoeveschain, a blockchain-based exchange that will allow for instant trades of digital currencies, according to Chu.
Stikesch will be joined by co-founder and CEO Peter Steevesch.
Steeve will serve as the company CEO, Chu told Cryptocurrency News.
Steely’s crypto-token sale is a joint venture between Steebesch and CryptoStoeys company.
Steevessch told CoinMarketCap that Steely is partnering with CryptoSteely to build a blockchain platform to allow for faster trading of cryptocurrencies, adding: “We have already started a trial with Crypto Steely.”
Steely, a venture capital-backed blockchain-centric company, has recently been building out a crypto-specific trading platform for its crypto coins.
Steely will launch Steely-S-X in late April.
Stikeys crypto-coin trading platform will include an instant exchange service.
Stikeys Steely trading platform allows for instant trading of crypto-currencies and will be available to investors in the U.S. and Canada.
Stix, a decentralized exchange platform, has announced it is expanding to a larger European market, and will open an exchange in Europe in late March.
StIX CEO, Paul Stix, told CoinCap that the Stix platform will be built in the European Union and will offer the exchange’s trading platform as an add-on to its existing crypto-only trading platform.
Stix has invested $2 million in Stix over the last year.
Stux has a number of other products, including a trading platform to support the Bitcoin futures market, as Stux also serves as a trading engine for digital currency exchanges, Chu noted.
Stuxe, a platform that enables users to buy and sell cryptocurrency for fiat currency, has also recently opened an exchange and will begin trading in the United Kingdom in the second half of the year.
Stux plans to open an additional exchange in China in the fourth quarter of this year.
In addition to the Steebies new cryptocurrency trading platform, Steebs also has its own exchange platform and an integrated crypto-exchange service.
Stoo, an online platform for decentralized exchanges, recently announced it will expand into Japan in the third quarter of 2018.
Stooo currently operates in Japan, with Stoo in Japan being Stoo’s main trading platform and platform to buy, sell, and store digital currencies.
Stoos new exchange will allow buyers and sellers of digital currency to trade fiat currencies for digital currencies that do not meet Stoos requirements, including digital currencies like BTC and USD.
Stoes trading platform aims to serve users from around the world.
