Ledger CEO Pascal Gauthier On That $380M Funding Round

Earlier this year I wrote a piece for Sifted.eu that had the headline: Crypto startup Ledger fights to repair its reputation. The company had experienced some data breaches and it was dealing with blowback from customers.

Flash forward 6 months and it seems Ledger has put those episodes in the rearview mirror. Today, Ledger announced it had raised $380 million at a $1.5 billion valuation to become France’s 15th unicorn.

Ledger CEO Pascal Gauthier sounded fairly humble about the latest round when I spoke to him today. The money is just another step toward realizing Ledger’s much bigger vision around digital assets.
