Peter Thiel-Backed Block.one injects $ 10 billion in exchange for encryption

Other prominent investors participating in the funding round include Hong Kong tycoon Richard Li, German entrepreneur and investor Christian Angermayer, Michael Novogratz’s Galaxy Digital, and Nomura Holdings. Additionally, EOS has recently seen declining developer interest — a yardstick for a project’s promise and health — according to a report from Electric Capital, a venture firm that invests in crypto startups. Bullish will offer institutional and retail investors market making, lending and portfolio management services in a DeFi app without use of intermediaries like banks.

Developer Interest The exchange is seeking to leverage existing blockchain technology with the decentralized architecture of DeFi that has grown in popularity for maximizing yield-generating strategies. The announcement follows Coinbase Global Inc.’s debut last month on the Nasdaq, which initially valued the largest U.S. crypto exchange at more than $100 billion.

It also appears to be a significant step to revitalize Block.one’s EOS technology, which has faced headwinds since it ran the world’s biggest ICO that netted $4 billion in 2018. While some of the money has been used to build out the EOSblockchain — much of it was simply invested in assets such as government bonds. Bullish, as the exchange will be known, is being capitalized by Block.one with about $10 billion in digital assets and cash. That seeding includes 164,000 Bitcoins valued at around $9.7 billion, $100 million in cash and 20 million EOS tokens, which power Block.one transactions. A funding round raised another $300 million, Block.one said in a statement Tuesday.
