In less than one month, CertiK closes a second fundraising round, bringing its total fundraising efforts to over $70M. This comes as CertiK enters a phase of hyper growth and recognition as blockchain’s leading security firm.

The buzz in the air at CertiK HQ is tangible. We’re entering a stage of hyper-growth with the rapid expansion of our incredible team and, of course, the development of our innovative security-focused tech which is ripe to change the face of security in the blockchain ecosystem.

Our latest raise of $24m will empower the growth of CertiK and allow us to continue protecting the cryptoverse.

“The meteoric rise of decentralized finance has given millions of people the opportunity to become their own bank,” said Pengfei Wang, partner at Tiger Global who led the recent raise. “Yet for the innovations to be fully trusted, security must be the focal point. We’re proud to support CertiK in raising the standards of security with the rollout of Skynet Premium. The product pioneers a novel and critical sector of the market: antivirus for blockchain.”

Coinciding with our most recent fundraise is the release of Skynet Premium, the industry’s first active-monitoring platform enabling real-time alerts on live smart contracts that have already been deployed. Our Premium offering includes an analytics dashboard that enables our enterprise clients to monitor and manage their risk in real-time. The most important metrics from Skynet are available 24/7 to our community and everyone else on the Security Leaderboard.

With over 1,300 enterprise clients services, $90 billion worth of crypto assets protected, and 23,000 vulnerabilities detected in blockchain code, we’re confident we’re well on the way to achieving provable trust for all.

We wouldn’t be here without you; the crypto community, the visionaries, the financial pioneers. For that, we thank you.

Now, let’s continue to BUIDL together.
