We started ZenLedger because we knew we could help crypto investors and provide a valuable tax service while also helping the overall crypto and blockchain community to flourish by staying on the right side of the law.
SEATTLE (PRWEB) December 17, 2019
ZenLedger.io, a cryptocurrency tax analysis and blockchain analytics startup, announced a strategic seed raise of $3.4M. The fintech startup has helped thousands of cryptocurrency investors and accountants with tax filings and financial analysis, exceeding $1B of crypto transactions with significant tax and time savings.
Customers often save dozens of hours and thousands of dollars, freeing them to focus on growing their investments. ZenLedger brings a human touch as well, making it easy for you to get help anytime by phone, chat, or email because some people dislike math, and everyone dislikes taxes.
Vestigo Ventures, who invest in transformative fintech companies, led the round and is joined by Gumi Cryptos, Castle Island Ventures, Unblock Ventures, and Migration Capital.
ZenLedger, a Seattle based startup with 15 team members, has grown revenue and customers by over 500% year over year.
Pat Larsen, CEO of ZenLedger.io: “We started ZenLedger because we knew we could help crypto investors and provide a valuable tax service while also helping the overall crypto and blockchain community to flourish by staying on the right side of the law. We set out to have great customer service, a fast and easy customer experience, and a professional grade product and I believe we’ve done that. I’m so proud of our team and really excited by what we can accomplish as we improve our tax, financial analysis, and blockchain analysis products for crypto investors and accountants. We can continue to hire great developers, marketers, and customer success specialists.”
