Two Hop Ventures, an Amsterdam-based venture capital fund has announced that it has taken a stake in Bitcoin wallet provider, Centbee.
The stake bought by Two Hop Ventures in Centbee comes after South African-based venture capital fund Paper Plane Ventures successfully exited Two Hop.
You would recall that in Aprill last year, Centbee raised £1 million in a Series A round from Calvin Ayre.
Two Hop co-founder Jan Smit commented, “Not only is Centbee one of the most used wallets in the BitcoinSV (BSV) ecosystem, it’s building products and services with a strong focus on regulatory compliance. The senior management team comes from strong professional and corporate backgrounds including software engineering, banking, payments, accounting, and finance.
“We believe its professionalism and strong business acumen will enable Centbee to branch into many adjacent services and geographies that competitors are less likely to address. The Two Hop team is looking forward to supporting the Centbee team on this journey.”
Michael Stannard of Paper Plane Ventures said, “We’re proud to have supported Centbee from its early days as a small start-up to becoming a formidable player in the crypto-asset space. We look forward to watching the fintech grow.”
Angus Brown, co-CEO of the bitcoin wallet added, “This deal demonstrates the potential for the startup and other BitcoinSV (BSV) companies to deliver real value for both investors, industry stakeholders and consumers.
“We’ve enjoyed a high user growth rate and have a clear path to revenue. With Two Hop’s support, we’ll continue building more utility into our products by leveraging the BitcoinSV (BSV) blockchain and delivering world-class app functionality to our users.”
