Tagomi Holdings Inc, an Electronic Brokerage for Digital Assets, Begins Trading

December 17, 2018 GMT

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 17, 2018--Tagomi Holdings Inc. (“Tagomi”), the first live electronic brokerage offering prime services for sophisticated investors of Bitcoin, Ether, and other digital assets, today announced it is live and executing client trades, and that it has received the backing of several notable investors. Tagomi helps clients achieve best price execution for digital assets, who expect and require institutional operational standards, treasury management, low transaction-costs, transparency, custody solutions, and other services.

To date, Tagomi has raised $16 million from top-tier investors, including Founders Fund, Collaborative Fund, SV Angel, Joe Lonsdale, Brainchild, Digital Currency Group, ZhenFund, Box Group, Elad Gil, Charlie Noyes, and others.

“Cryptocurrency trading lacks the transparency and sophisticated execution that top family offices and wealth management firms have come to expect. I’m excited to see an ambitious team with the right experience in finance and technology fix this, creating a solution we trust,” said Joe Lonsdale, Founder of Palantir and Addepar.
