A crypto-industry-specific startup, Messari, has completed a funding round led by Uncork Capital, which also included Blockchain Capital, CoinFund, Danhua Capital, Fenbushi Capital, Coinbase Ventures and former Coinbase technical director Balaji Srinivasan.

Former Managing Director of CoinDesk and CEO of Messari, Ryan Selkis, noted that now more than 60 cryptocurrency projects, as well as “the world's largest exchanges, funds and information service providers” use his company’s services. According to him, the funds raised will be used to automate the processes of receiving and processing data, as well as to expand the product line.

Founded a year ago, the company previously raised $ 1 million in seed investment from Danhua Capital, Blockchain Capital, Anthemis Group and other venture capital firms.

In the third quarter, Messari introduced a regulatory compliance asset monitoring service that also measures the market supply of coins. In addition, the company launched a beta version of the Messari Pro platform, which includes a set of professional tools for market analysis.
