ZenLedger Raises $15M to Expand Crypto Tax Products
Cryptocurrency tax services firm ZenLedger announced Wednesday it raised $15 million in Series B funding, bumping the company’s total funding up to $27 million.
Coming off what CEO Pat Larsen called the five year old startup’s “best tax season ever,” ZenLedger has seen its sales grow five-fold. It is now courting new markets in an effort to expand further still.
ZenLedger helps token-holders navigate the ambiguities of crypto taxes by plugging into their trading data from wallets, exchanges and NFTs. It has plenty of competition in that space: Last August, TaxBit raised $130 million while CoinTracker raised $100 million ahead of tax season.
According to Larsen, there are currently 50,000 users of ZenLedger. It is now planning on launching new products tailored for prospects from the Registered Investment Advisor and Certified Public Accountant world.
ZenLedger also plans to use the funding to expand its team. That effort’s already begun: in April, it hired a new Chief Technology officer in Daniel Escobar, a Bitpay alum, along with three other c-suite executives.
The round was led by ParaFi Capital, with contributions from Bloccelerate VC, King River Capital, G1 Ventures, Main Street Investment, Three Point Capital, Shorooq Partners, VaynerFund, Blizzard Fund and AngelList Quant Fund, according to a press release.
