Paradigm, a firm that provides liquidity to crypto derivatives traders, raised $35 million in a Series A funding round co-led by Jump Capital and Alameda Ventures.

  • The round values the firm at $400 million, Paradigm said in a press release on Thursday.
  • Over 25 other investors also participated in the Series A, including Genesis Trading, QCP Capital, Nexo and Optiver US. Genesis is owned by Digital Currency Group, which also owns CoinDesk.
  • Previous investors Dragonfly Capital, Digital Currency Group, Vectr Fintech Partners and Mirana Ventures, the venture partner of Bybit and BitDAO, also participated.
