In addition to the active participation and strong commitment of existing shareholders, this financing round attracted new investors, including prominent institutional investors, leading Web3 institutions, and strategic partners.
The newly raised capital will be used to solidify HashKey’s Web3 ecosystem, accelerate the product diversification of its licensed business in Hong Kong, and drive the Group’s compliant and innovative development globally.
