2020-2-6 12:34

 

区块链创业公司Digital Asset周二宣布结束C轮融资,此前该公司获得了Salesforce Ventures和三星风险投资(Samsung Venture Investment)的资金。


这是该公司第二轮融资的结束,此前该公司已在去年12月结束了这轮融资,此前已筹集了逾3500万美元。


自2014年成立以来,该公司已经筹集了大约1.5亿美元。


总部位于纽约的Digital Asset开发了一种名为DAML的智能契约语言。它用于创建智能契约或计算机程序,以自动化业务流程并对两个或多个实体之间的协议进行数字验证和强制执行。


Digital Asset联合创始人兼首席执行官尤瓦尔•鲁兹(Yuval Rooz)在评论这轮融资时表示:“Salesforce Ventures和三星加入我们的C轮融资,表明科技巨头将DAML视为智能合约标准的潜力。”


根据新闻稿,新的收益将用于加快跨多个行业的语言采用。它还打算扩大支持DAML的合作产品的数量和种类,并为旨在增强DAML开发人员体验的新产品提供资金。


“我们坚信,Digital Asset将DAML嵌入合作平台的模式从根本上改变了整个区块链市场,”三星风险投资(Samsung Venture Investment)的一位发言人表示。“Digital Asset已经为自己在区块链领域的成功定位,我们很高兴帮助它实现自己的愿景。”

 

向董事会增加专业知识


此外,该公司还宣布公司顾问苏珊·豪泽(Susan Hauser)加入董事会。


“任命苏珊·豪泽进入董事会将有助于我们利用这一愿景。她给我们带来了她对客户需求无与伦比的理解,以及在微软建立企业业务的非凡经验,”鲁兹补充道。

 

Blockchain startup Digital Asset has announced on Tuesday the closure of its Series C financing round after receiving funds from Salesforce Ventures and Samsung Venture Investment.

 

This is the second closure of the financing round as the company already closed the round in December after raising more than $35 million.

 

With this, the company has raised around $150 million since its launch in 2014.

 

Headquartered in New York, Digital Asset developed a smart contract language named DAML. It is used to create smart contracts or computer programs that automate business processes and digitally verify and enforce agreements between two or more entities.

 

Commenting on the funding round, Yuval Rooz, co-founder and CEO of Digital Asset, said: “Salesforce Ventures and Samsung joining our Series C financing round demonstrates the potential that technology giants see in DAML as the standard for smart contracts.”

 

Per the press release, the fresh proceeds will be used to accelerate the adoption of the language across multiple industries. It is also aiming to expand the number and variety of DAML-enabled partner products and fund new products designed to enhance the DAML developer experience.

 

“We strongly believe that Digital Asset’s model to embed DAML in partner platforms fundamentally changes the entire blockchain market,” a spokesperson from Samsung Venture Investment, said. “Digital Asset has positioned itself for success in the blockchain space and we are pleased to help it achieve its vision.”


Adding expertise to the board

 

In addition, the company also announced the addition of Susan Hauser, an advisor to the firm, to its board of directors.

 

“Appointing Susan Hauser to the board will help us capitalize on this vision. She brings us her unparalleled understanding of customer needs and exceptional experience building an enterprise business at Microsoft,” Rooz added.
