Singapore – April 5, 2022 (Investorideas.com Newswire) RockX, one of Asia’s largest crypto staking providers, today announced the completion of its USD 6 million Series A funding round.

RockX will use the funds to enhance its product and service offerings, as well as grow its team to better meet the increasing global demands for quality staking and data services. The completion of this funding round, which values RockX at USD 30 million, comes at a period of unprecedented growth for the business. Since the beginning of the year alone, RockX has doubled its headcount and its assets under management to almost USD 1 billion, all while announcing significant collaborations with established protocols, such as Lido and ssv.network, to bring more innovative liquid staking products and robust validator infrastructure onto major and emerging proof-of-stake blockchains.
Chen Zhuling, Chief Executive Officer, RockX, said: “The strong support we are seeing in our inaugural round of capital raising is a testament to the potential and strength of our business.
